Development of new liquid scintillators for neutrino experiments of next generation
2019 November 05
We present results of development of new liquid scintillators for neutrino experiments of next generation. Liquid scintillators are working horses for neutrino experiments starting from the very beginning of neutrino physics. Indeed experimental discovery of neutrino was done by using liquid scintillator. Liquid scintillators have been intensely used in neutrino physics experiments like Borexino, KamLAND, SNO, Double Chooz, Daya Bay, RENO etc. Presently a number of new experiments in the field are being constructed or under development like JUNO, SNO+, RENO-50 etc.
