The Need to Measure Low-Energy Antineutrinos (E⊻<0.782 Mev) from the Sun
Measurements are needed of low-energy antineutrinos generated by possible neutron decay at the core of the Sun. The measurement will test the validity of a proposal that solar luminosity, solar neutrinos, and the outpouring of H + ions from the solar surface are the products of a chain of reactions triggered by neutron emission from the solar core. Inverse β decay of 87-d 35S, induced by capture of low-energy antineutrinos on 35Cl, is a likely candidate for this measurement.
