Description

SBND, a 112 ton liquid argon time projection chamber, is the near detector of the short-baseline neutrino program at Fermilab. Once data taking begins in 2020, it will provide flux constraints for sterile neutrino searches and produce world leading neutrino-argon cross-sections with seven million neutrino events in 3 years. This talk will demonstrate the capability of SBND's time projection chamber and cosmic ray tagger system to select charged-current muon neutrino interactions above the largest source of background, cosmic ray muons.
