Pictured at left is the light concentrator inside the detector of the Borexino Experiment. The Borexino detector is a real time detector for low energy solar neutrinos with the specific goal of measuring the neutrino flux being emitted from the sun. Due to the very low amounts of energy that solar neutrinos give off, the inside of the detector must be free of any radio contamination. The impact of the measurements taken by the Borexino Experiment is extremely relevant both in solar physics, in connection with the understanding of sun-like stars, and in neutrino physics.
