Description

DUNE is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment that will take data in a wideband neutrino beam at Fermilab in the latter half of the 2020s. The experiment is planning to build a very capable near detector to facilitate the high precision extraction of oscillation parameters. Part of the mission of the near detector is to acquire powerful data sets that can be used to constrain the fits used in the oscillation analyses and improve the neutrino interaction model. In this talk, the importance and the potential of a vibrant program of neutrino interaction physics using this detector is described. A few case studies that illustrate the power of the DUNE near detector for studying neutrino interaction physics are described.
