Neutrino interaction measurements at the short baseline neutrino program
Date: Thursday, September 21st
Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: CH5310 /
Speaker: Prof. Andy Furmanski, University of Minnesota
Abstract: The discovery of neutrino oscillations has led to the development of large accelerator-based neutrino experiments, often spanning hundreds of miles with multi-kiloton detectors. The desire for precision measurements of neutrino oscillations leads to the need for a precise understanding of how neutrinos interact with nuclei - this lack of understanding is currently one of the largest uncertainties in long-baseline neutrino experiments like T2K and NOvA. The short baseline program at Fermilab provides a wealth of data for understanding neutrino-argon interactions, which will be critical for DUNE. Using the power of liquid argon detectors, coupled with innovative measurement techniques, we are able to measure nuclear structure with neutrinos, and enabling future precision measurements of oscillations including the search for CP violation.
