Abstract
The observation of the Reactor Antineutrino Anomaly, at the beginning of this decade, has revived the interest in short-baseline experiments that probe the disappearance of electron antineutrinos. In addition, the recent evidence for a distortion in the reactor antineutrino energy spectrum, seen by some of those short-baseline experiments, has questioned our current models even more.
The SoLid experiment is a reactor neutrino experiment, located at the BR2 reactor site of the SCK-CEN in Belgium, that aims to resolve the anomaly and perform a precise spectral measurement using a novel detector design.
To fulfil its challenging goals, the SoLid collaboration needs to perform detailled reactor calculations and develop a dedicated analysis framework.
These proceedings aim to review the simulation chain and analysis techniques needed to predict the measured antineutrino rates and spectra, to build the detector response matrix and to determine the experimental sensitivity and confidence limits using several fitting methods.
