Here is what the relevant part of your reference said: "The KamLAND (Kamioka Liquid-scintillator Anti-Neutrino Detector) apparatus was purpose-built to catch a glimpse of these elusive particles (see Fig. 5 on page 502). The detector is situated in the centre of the largest Japanese island, Honshu, in a mine one kilometre below the summit of Mt Ikenoyama, to reduce the effects of cos-mic rays formed from particles other than antineutrinos. Antineutrinos are occasionally captured by protons in KamLAND's 1-kilotonne, 13-metre-diameter scintillation detector (pictured above) in a process known as inverse -decay. This produces a neutron, which combines with a proton to form a deuteron and produces a characteristic -ray ('scintillation light') with an energy of 2.2 MeV. The light that this reaction produces is detected as an electrical signal by an array of photomultiplier devices surrounding the detector."
What happened (according to the Ross Model) was the neutrino (probably a relatively low energy neutrino)was captured by an electron which turned the electron into a very high energy electron that combined with a hydrogen nuclei (a proton) to become a neutron which in turn combined with another proton to become a deuteron which produced the characteristic -ray with energy of 2.2 Mev. The author is right this is reverse beta decay in which an electron (a beta particle) and a neutrino are emitted from an atomic nuclei. The best way an electron can get inside a nuclei is by riding on a proton as part of a neutron. See FIG. 9 and text at page 29 of my patent application for my proposed model of a deuteron. In any case this report certainly does not convince me that neutrinos are not photons. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Monday, October 10, 2005 4:41 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED]; [EMAIL PROTECTED]; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Neutrino shield idea http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v436/n7050/full/436467a.html -----Original Message----- From: John Ross <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: 'Saibal Mitra' <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; email@example.com Sent: Mon, 10 Oct 2005 16:34:26 -0700 Subject: RE: Neutrino shield idea Name one. -----Original Message----- From: Saibal Mitra [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Monday, October 10, 2005 3:27 PM To: John Ross; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Neutrino shield idea There are a lot of experiments that have detected neutrinos and verified their properties (which are completely different from photons).
