We present an evaluation of the background induced by?41Am-13C neutron calibration sources in the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment. As a significant background for electron-antineutrino detection at 0.26?.12 per detector per day on average, it has been estimated by a Monte Carlo simulation that was benchmarked by a special calibration data set. This dedicated data set also provided the energy spectrum of the background.

An overview of the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment

Jun Cao; Kam-Biu Luk
Subjects: Physics >> Nuclear Physics

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment discovered an unexpectedly large neutrino oscillation related to the mixing angle?θ13?in 2012. This finding paved the way to the next generation of neutrino oscillation experiments. In this article, we review the history, featured design, and scientific results of Daya Bay. Prospects of the experiment are also described.
