Search for periodic modulations of the solar neutrino flux in Super-Kamiokande-I

Published

Journal Article

A search for periodic modulations of the solar neutrino flux was performed using the Super-Kamiokande-I data taken from 31 May 1996 to 15 July 2001. The detector's capability of measuring the exact time of events, combined with a relatively high yield of solar neutrino events, allows a search for short-time variations in the observed flux. We employed the Lomb test to look for periodic modulations of the observed solar neutrino flux. The obtained periodogram is consistent with statistical fluctuation and no significant periodicity was found. © 2003 The American Physical Society.
