Description

ICARUS is a liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) neutrino detector situated at the intersection of two neutrino beams at Fermilab. As part of the Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program, it will search for neutrino oscillations in the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB). The search will test past anomalous results in neutrino physics such as the LSND, MiniBooNE, and reactor anomalies which could be explained by the existence of a sterile neutrino. Beyond oscillation physics, ICARUS will also perform measurements of neutrino cross sections and search for Beyond Standard Model (BSM) physics with the Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) beam. ICARUS has been installed at Fermilab since 2020 and began its physics data taking in June 2022. In this presentation, preliminary technical results and detector physics measurements from ICARUS data with the BNB and NuMI beams are presented. Progress on the program of ICARUS oscillation, cross section, and BSM physics is shown. These results demonstrate the capability of ICARUS to select and reconstruct neutrino events. The preliminary detector physics measurements also have relevance for the larger program of LArTPC neutrino physics experiments.
