Abstract

The SNO+ collaboration reports the first observation of reactor antineutrinos in a Cherenkov detector. The nearest nuclear reactors are located 240 km away in Ontario, Canada. This analysis used events with energies lower than in any previous analysis with a large water Cherenkov detector. Two analytical methods were used to distinguish reactor antineutrinos from background events in 190 days of data and yielded consistent observations of antineutrinos with a combined significance of 3.5 $\sigma$.
