Description

The first observation of Coherent Elastic neutrino Nuclear Scattering (CEνNS) has been observed at a 6.7-sigma confidence level by the COHERENT collaboration using 14.6-kg CsI[Na] scintillator at pulsed neutrino beam from Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory [1]. The CEνNS process predicted by the standard model is a neutral-current weak interaction with cross section is enhanced by N^2, where N is the number of neutrons in the nucleus. This indicates a new way to build compact neutrino detectors and unlocks new channels to test the standard model. In this talk we will review implications of the first result and future plans of collaboration of high statistic studies of CEvNS with next generation of detectors.
