Reactor antineutrino anomaly revisited
March 31, 2022
In our recent work, we studied the status of the reactor antineutrino anomaly in light of new reactor flux conversion and summation models. We present a new improved calculation of the IBD yields of the standard Huber-Mueller (HM) model and those of the new models. We show that the reactor rates and the fuel evolution data are consistent with the predictions of the Kurchatov Institute (KI) conversion model and with those of the Estienne-Fallot (EF) summation model, leading to a plausible robust demise of the reactor antineutrino anomaly. We also show that the results of several goodness of fit tests favor the KI and EF models over other models under consideration.
