Poster Neutrino Physics Poster Session


Aleena Rafique (Kansas State University)


MicroBooNE is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC)
located in the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermi National Accelerator
Laboratory. This poster presents a study on charged particle multiplicity
(CPM) analysis based on a small sample of automatically and visually
identified neutrino events in the MicroBooNE detector. Initial comparison
of multiplicity distributions for data, BNB plus cosmic Monte Carlo (MC),
and true MC is presented here. Comparison of multiplicity distributions of
uncorrected data and MC show consistency. Multiplicity distributions of
corrected scanned and true MC are also in agreement. Fully automated
reconstruction will be used to proceed with this analysis with the goal of
testing models of neutrino scattering on argon such as those embedded in
GENIE and other event generators.
