First observation of a reactor-status effect on the Beta decay rate of 22Na

The manuscript "First observation of a reactor-status effect on the β+ decay rate of 22Na" has been submitted to Physical Review C. A preprint is available at ArXiV.org 1610.01332 (click here). The paper presents a reproducable reduction in the decay-corrected count rate during reactor-status ON compared to OFF for 22Na at a ten sigma level. No detectable effect is observed for the β- decay rate of 60Co.
