Abstract
Boron-loaded liquid scintillator offers some potential advantages as a dete ctor for electron anti-neutrinos. A research program was carried out with t he objective of developing such scintillators. The crucial feature is the p ulse shape discrimination properties following the neutron capture by B-10. Results of the R&D efforts are presented. The feasibility and the technica l difficulties of carrying out a full-scale neutrino experiment based on th is approach are discussed. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserv ed.
