Abstract: Borexino, a large volume liquid scintillator detector installed at Gran Sasso laboratory, demonstrated extraordinary sensitivity with respect to neutrino and antineutrino detection, reporting the best up to date results on low energy solar neutrino fluxes and performing geo-neutrino detection. Energy and position of 1 MeV events in Borexino are reconstructed with a precision of 5% and 14 cm respectively. These performances together with extremely low background provides an excellent opportunity for the study of short distance neutrino oscillations on the eV mass scale with artificial neutrino sources. The possible layouts for Cr-51 (monoenergetic neutrino) and Ce-144-Pr-144 (antineutrino from beta-decay) source experiments in Borexino and the expected sensitivity to sterile neutrinos for three possible designs of the experiment are presented.
