SBND (Short-Baseline Near Detector) is a 112 ton liquid argon TPC neutrino
detector under construction on the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam.
Together with MicroBooNE and ICARUS-T600, SBND will search for shortbaseline neutrino oscillations in the 1 $eV^2$ mass range. SBND will also perform
detailed studies of the physics of neutrino-argon interactions, thanks to a data
sample of millions of electron and muon neutrino interactions. Finally SBND
plays an important role in the on-going R&D effort to develop the LArTPC technology,
testing several technologies that can be used in a future kiloton-scale
neutrino detectors for a long-baseline experiment. We will discuss the detector
design, its current status, and the physics program.
