Estimates of the cross sections using a variety of different techniques (shell model, RPA, QRPA, effective particle theory) 8 Neutrinos from decay-in-flight muons also allowed for cross section measurements for energies below 300 MeV. Rev. Mod. Phys., Vol. 84, No. 3, July–September 2012 demonstrate the robustness of the calculations. Some disagreement can be seen in the inclusive channels; this disagreement is to be expected since the final state is not as well defined as in the exclusive channels. More recent predictions employing extensive shell model calculations appear to show better agreement with the experimental data. A plot showing the collected data from the exclusive reaction 12 Cðe ; eÀ Þ12 N and 12 Cð ; À Þ12 N are shown in Figs. 6 and 7, respectively. Table VII also lists other nuclei that have been under experimental study. Proton beam stops at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility have also been utilized to study lowenergy neutrino cross sections on 127 I. Cross sections on iron targets have also been explored with low-energy beams at the KARMEN experiment (Ruf, 2005). Perhaps the most remarkable of such measurements was the use of MCi radiological sources for low-energy electron cross section measurements. Both the Soviet-American Gallium Experiment (SAGE) (Abdurashitov et al., 1999) and GALLium EXperiment (GALLEX) (Anselmann et al., 1995) solar neutrino experiments have made use of a MCi 51 Cr source to study the reaction 71 Gað ; eÀ Þ71 Ge to both e the ground and excited states of 71 Ge. The source strength of 51 Cr is typically determined using calorimetric techniques and the uncertainty on the final activity is constrained to about 1%–2%. The SAGE collaboration subsequently also made use of a gaseous 37 ArMCi source. Its activity, using a Joseph A. Formaggio and G. P. Zeller: From eV to EeV: Neutrino cross sections . . . 12 Ng.s.)
