Detecting solar boron neutrinos with Cerenkov and scintillation detectors
The use of Cerenkov and scintillation detectors to detect solar neutrinos is discussed. An intense background is created by the interactions between the detector nuclei and the cascade neutrons generated in nuclear showers triggered by muons. Methods for suppressing this background are proposed. The replacement of the water in the Cerenkov counters by a substance containing carbon should make it possible to detect solar neutrinos with a background level one or two orders of magnitude lower than at present.
