Abstract

Several observed anomalies in the neutrino sector could be explained by a fourth (sterile) neutrino with a squared mass difference in the order of 1eV2 to the other three standard neutrinos. This hypothesis can be tested with an artificial kCi antineutrino (Ce-144/Pr-144) source deployed near or inside a large low background detector like Borexino. The SOX project (short baseline neutrino oscillation with Borexino) aims for the detection of sterile neutrinos and offers the almost unique possibility to observe the characteristic antineutrino oscillation pattern within the detector. The concept is summarized whereby particular focus is given to the antineutrino spectrum calculation.
