Neutron backgrounds: 13C(α, n) etc

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

13C(α, n) reaction is the main neutron source in an underground large-volume liquid-scintillator detector KamLAND. α sources, targets, cross sections, and neutron transport are studied to estimate the backgrounds of v̄e signal.
