Description

MINERvA (Main INjEctoR nu-A) is a new few-GeV neutrino cross section experiment that recently began operations in the FNAL NuMI beam-line. MINERvA employs a fine-grained detector capable of complete kinematic characterization of neutrino interactions. We employ a three ton active target region composed of plastic scintillator as well as a selection of nuclear targets. The experiment will provide important inputs for neutrino oscillation searches as well as offer a pure weak probe of nuclear structure. We will offer a set of initial kinematic distributions for our anti-neutrino run during this conference.
