Abstract

Directional sensitive neutrino detectors contributed to astronomy and particle physics. The solar neutrino problem was firmly believed by the directional measurement of solar neutrinos, and the atmospheric neutrino oscillation was confirmed by the zenith angle distribution for two types of neutrinos. Recently, KamLAND showed the geo anti-neutrino detection realized by the event rate and energy spectra. It doesn't have the sensitivity of neutrino direction, so we can not distinguish the crust and mantle contribution. Lithium-loaded liquid scintillator has the potential to have the high sensitivity of coming anti-neutrino direction. Directional sensitive detectors will contribute to the better understanding of the earth interior using geo anti-neutrino flux information. Other motivations are the earlier determination of supernova direction and improvement of oscillation sensitivity for reactor anti-neutrinos.
