The Fermilab Short Baseline Neutrino Program

Presented by Dr. Stephen DENNIS on 2 Jul 2019 from 16:40 to 17:10
Type: oral presentation
Track: Neutrinos and Non-Accelerator Probes of New Physics


MicroBooNE, the Micro Booster Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab, is an 85-ton active mass liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) located in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. MicroBooNE is the first of three LArTPC detectors that form the Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program at Fermilab, which has three main aims: to search for new physics, particularly eV-scale sterile neutrinos, to study neutrino scattering on argon, and to advance LArTPC technology that will be used in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. This talk will review the science goals of the SBN program, with a particular focus on MicroBooNE and its most recent neutrino scattering measurements. As the largest liquid argon detector worldwide taking neutrino beam data, MicroBooNE provides a unique opportunity to investigate neutrino-argon scattering at O(1 GeV) energies, as well as an exciting demonstration of the potential of LArTPC detector technology to improve our current understanding of neutrino physics.
