Title: Detection potential for the diffuse supernova neutrino background in the large liquid-scintillator detector LENA

Abstract

The large-volume liquid-scintillator detector LENA (low energy neutrino astronomy) will provide high-grade background discrimination and enable the detection of diffuse supernova neutrinos (DSN) in an almost background-free energy window from {approx}10 to 25 MeV. Within ten years of exposure, it will be possible to derive significant constraints on both core-collapse supernova models and the supernova rate in the near universe up to redshifts z<2.
