The Solar Neutrino Puzzle

Abstract

Terrestrial measurements of neutrinos emitted in hydrogen fusion processes provide information on the nuclear reactions proceeding in the solar interior. The observed deficit by a factor of three in the solar neutrino flux cannot be reconciled with the Standard Solar Model. The GALLEX project presently being built-up in the Gran Sasso Underground Neutrino Laboratory is aiming at the low-energy branch of the solar neutrino spectrum. Any deviations from the expected neutrino flux, which would be measured in the new experiment, can be attributed to particular neutrino properties, such as neutrino mass and neutrino mixing.
