Abstract content

To produce a beam of electron neutrinos one can use $\beta^+$-decaying nuclei, accumulated in a storage ring. Such a beam can have a considerable monochromatic part if the nuclei decay is due to electron capture with significant probability. Under certain conditions, in particular, when using hydrogen-like ions, this monochromatic fraction can be modulated. The requirements for the nuclei of such hydrogen-like ions are stated. Two situations are considered: entirely monochromatic modulated beams (from isotopes decaying only via electron capture) and intense combined beams with a modulated monochromatic component (from isotopes decaying both via $\beta^+$-decay and electron capture). For both cases, nuclei that can be used as beam sources are selected.
