Abstract

Electrochemical detectors were fabricated to consist of two electrodes with raw silk and purified water in a Teflon container. The detectors generated output voltage through copper conduction wires in the environmental neutrino circumstances. The influences of electrode gold purity, conduction wire materials and fast-reactor neutrino irradiation were studied on the output voltage of the detectors. The detectors with higher-purity gold electrode promoted the faster time-evolution of the output voltage. Use of wire materials of gold produced the highest output voltage, while that of iron gave the almost half voltage. The irradiation of fast reactor neutrinos reduced the output voltage to an half level.
