Summary

MicroBooNE is a liquid argon time projection chamber in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. The large event rate and 3 mm wire spacing of the detector provide high-statistics, precise-resolution imaging of neutrino interactions leading to low-threshold, high-efficiency event reconstruction with full angular coverage. As such, this is an ideal place to probe neutrino-argon interactions in the hundreds-of- MeV to few-GeV energy range, and to study the impact of nuclear effects through detailed measurements of hadronic final states. This talk will present recent measurements of neutrino interactions in MicroBooNE, including inclusive charged- current interactions, neutral-pion production, and measurements of low-energy protons.
