Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Neutrinos coming from the Sun have played a crucial role in the discovery of neutrino oscillations and they still are proving to be a unique and powerful tool in the investigation of the fusion reactions that power the stars, as well as representing a probe to study the basic neutrino properties. The Borexino detector has started its data acquisition in 2007 in the underground Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS) in Italy. The main goal of Borexino is the real-time study of low energy neutrinos with an energy threshold as low as about 50 keV. A first phase named Borexino Phase-I started in 2007 and ended in 2010, then after a purification campaign, data-taking resumed in 2011 with the so-called Borexino Phase-II. I will present the recent results of Borexino for the measurement of the four main solar neutrino components of the pp fusion chain (pp, pep, 7Be, 8B), and the upper limits on the remaining two solar neutrino fluxes (CNO and hep).
