Abstract

The γ ray production in neutral-current (NC) neutrino-oxygen interaction is very important to the detection of neutrinos from supernova explosion in a neutrino experiment, since those γ rays can become extra signals or unexpected background in the energy region from 5 MeV to 30 MeV. We propose the experiment to measure γ rays in 16O(p,p') reaction at Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP, Osaka) to provide good information on the γ-ray emission spectra in neutrino-oxygen reactions. We present the design of γ-ray detectors (NaI, CsI, HPGe), which will be used in proposed experiment.
