The estimation of neutrino fluxes produced by proton-proton collisions at s=14\sqrt{s}=14 TeV of the LHC

Abstract

Intense and collimated neutrino beams are produced by charm and beauty particle decays from proton-proton collisions at the LHC. A neutrino experiment would be run parasitically without interrupting the LHC physics program during the collider run. We estimate the neutrino fluxes from proton-proton collisions at s=14\sqrt{s}=14 TeV of the LHC with the designed luminosity, 10^{34} \lumi. By mounting about 200 tons of fiducial volume of a neutrino detector at 300 \m away from the interaction point, about 150,000 of charged current neutrino events per year can be observable.Comment: 8 pages, Accepted in JHE
