AbstractThe 14C/12C ratio in 4.8 m3 of high-purity liquid scintillator was measured at (1.94 ± 0.09) × 10-18, the lowest 14C abundance ever measured. At this level the spectroscopy of low-energy solar neutrinos, in particular a measurement of the 7Be neutrino flux, will not be obstructed by the 14C β decay intrinsic to a liquid scintillator detector. A comprehensive study of the deviation of the shape of the 14C β spectrum from the allowed statistical shape reveals consistent results with recent observations and calculations. Possible origins of the 14C in the liquid scintillator are discussed. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
