Title: $$\sin ^{2}\theta _{W}$$ estimate and neutrino electromagnetic properties from low-energy solar data

Abstract

We report new values of weak-mixing angle ($$\sin ^{2}\theta _{W}$$)$,$ neutrino effective magnetic moment and the charge radius using the lowest-energy (to-date) solar neutrino data of pp, $$^{7}$$Be and pep spectra from phase-I and phase-II runs of Borexino experiment. The best-fit values are $$\sin ^{2}\theta _{W}=$$0.235$$\pm $$0.019 with a precision comparable to that of the combined reactor and accelerator very short-baseline experiments and $$\mu _{\nu }^{eff}\leq 8.7\times 10^{-12}\mu _{B}$$ at 90% C.L. with a factor of 3 improvement than the previous bounds. This leads to the improvement of all the related magnetic moment matrix elements for the Majorana-type and Dirac-type in mass basis and also improvement on bounds on the flavor magnetic moment states. The bounds on the neutrino charged radii turn out to be $$-0.82\times 10^{-32}$$cm$$^{2}\leq \left \langle r_{\nu _{e}}^{2}\right \rangle \ \leq 1.27\times 10^{-32}$$ cm$$^{2}\ $$and $$-9\times 10^{-32}$$cm$$^{2}\leq \left \langle r_{\nu _{\mu },\nu _{\tau }}^{2}\right \rangle \ \leq 3.1\times 10^{-31}$$ cm$$^{2}\ $$ at 90% C.L..
