Experimental Particle and Astro-Particle Physics Seminar

Stefanos Leontsinis (University of Zurich (CH))

Abstract: MicroBooNE is a liquid argon time projection chamber that operated from 2015 to 2021 in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. The  collaboration has collected the world's largest dataset of neutrino-argon scattering events with a detector providing high-resolution imaging of neutrino interactions with a low threshold and full angular coverage. Thanks to breakthroughs in technology and event reconstruction a detailed understanding of the neutrino interactions is possible. This has led to a series of physics measurements that will be presented. Furthermore I will show how it allowed to perform an investigation of the anomalous event excess observed by previous experiments. MicroBooNE is a milestone in view of the full Short-Baseline program at Fermilab and the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).
