Description

Borexino is a liquid scintillator, solar neutrino detector running underground at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Italy. Thanks to the extreme radio-purity achieved throughout its whole set-up Borexino is capable of detecting solar neutrinos below 2 MeV. Among the main results obtained so far are the first measurement of the 7Be solar neutrinos flux, whose value is in agreement with the LMA-MSW scenario for neutrino oscillations, and the measurement of the 8B solar neutrino flux with an energy threshold of 2.8 MeV. These results are reported here and the future prospects discussed.
