David Caratelli (Fermilab) “Neutrinos at Short Baselines: the MicroBooNE Experiment”
March 2, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
While neutrino oscillation physics has entered an era of precision measurements, several anomalies in experiments at short baselines remain without a satisfactory answer.
The MicroBooNE experiment has been recording neutrino interactions on Fermilab’s Booster Neutrino Beam since 2015 employing a liquid argon TPC detector. This talk will present recent progress on MicroBooNE’s measurement of electron neutrinos aimed at addressing past anomalies observed by the MiniBooNE collaboration.
Finally, I will talk about how developments in the ability to use liquid argon TPC detectors in the sub-GeV regime can open new opportunities in neutrino and rare-event physics with Fermilab’s upcoming short- and long-baseline neutrino programs.
