The program of the Reactor Neutrino Experiments of Turkey includes a small portable Water-based liquid scintillator detector to detect neutrinos from the Akkuyu nuclear power plant, planned to begin operating in 2023. The small near-field detector will weigh about 2-3 tons and will be placed less than 100 meters from the reactor cores.
The Reactor Neutrino Experiments of Turkey program also includes a medium-size 30-ton Water-based liquid scintillator detector, which will be placed 1-2 km away from the reactor cores and will be used as a far detector.
Both detectors and their responses to neutrino interactions were simulated using a GEANT4-based RAT-PAC simulation package.
Here, we will share the technical and physical details of both detectors, and discuss the ongoing R&D effort for neutrino studies in Turkey.
