Low-energy neutrino scattering measurements at future spallation source facilities

Abstract : In the future several spallation source facilities will be available worldwide. spallation sources produce large amounts of neutrinos from decay-at-rest muons and thus can be well adapted to accommodate state-of-the-art neutrino experiments. In this paper low-energy neutrino scattering experiments that can be performed at such facilities are reviewed. Estimation of expected event rates is given for several nuclei, electrons and protons at a detector located close to the source. A neutrino program at spallation sources comprises neutrino-nucleus cross section measurements relevant for neutrino and core-collapse supernova physics, electroweak tests and lepton-flavor violation searches.
