Accurate measurements of the 8B neutrino spectrum are important for the interpretation of solar neutrino data.
Experimentally, the 8B neutrino spectrum can be obtained from the measurement of the β-delayed α spectrum.
We report on an α-α coincidence measurement performed at the IGISOL facility in Jyväskylä, Finland. Our measurement allows extensive cross-checks to be performed and gives a more intense neutrino spectrum at high energies compared to the present standard. The deviation reaches 4% at the end point of the spectrum. Below 11 MeV, the deviation is less than 1%.
