Huge strides have been made in the field of solar neutrinos in past decades, with the resolution of the solar neutrino problem providing clear evidence of neutrino oscillation. Measurements of the low-energy solar neutrinos can answer these questions for us, but such measurements require a large, ultra-low-background detector capable of making a precision measurement at low energy thresholds. This talk by Dr. Gabriel Orebi Gann of University of California at Berkeley will summarise the status of the field, and the experiments that will help us to shed light on these mysteries.
