Recently a new reactor neutrino neutrino experiment has been proposed to improve the CHOOZ bound on θ13 by one order of magnitude. Here I discuss the potential of this kind of experiments and compare it to the one of superbeams. Furthermore I will emphasize the complementarity of the two approaches. Specifically I will discuss the possible synergies for the discovery of leptonic CP violation. © 2004 American Institute of Physics

    The process of the formation of a signal by a vacuum fission chamber (VFC) under the irradiation by a short-duration pulsed neutron flux is considered for the first time. It is shown that the collection time of charge carriers in the VFC with plane–parallel electrodes does not exceed 0.4...

    Nuclear reactors generate a highly intense flux of electron-antineutrinos from fission products through β- decay, and produce a slight number of electron-neutrinos through either β+ decay or electron capture. Neutrino energy spectra are usually calculated by the β decay theory. Since...
