Title: A neutrino facility at the APT project

Abstract

Neutrino experimental research programs at the two large spallation neutron facilities--Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Rutherford--are providing much of the current excitement in nuclear, particle, and astrophysics research. Neutrino experiments are inherently very difficult because the cross sections involved are extremely small, of the order of 10{sup {minus}40} cm{sup 2}. A proposed project, the Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) facility, would provide fluxes of neutrinos that are {approximately}500 times greater than that available at LANL or Rutherford. Such a neutrino source would enable an exciting, and particularly timely, research effort in neutrino physics. The authors report here on calculations of the neutrino fluxes to be expected at the APT and on studies of experiments that might be performed at the APT.
