Description

Neutrino oscillation experiments require a precise measurement of the neutrino energy. However, the kinematic detection of the final state neutrons in the neutrino interaction is missing in current neutrino oscillation experiments. A novel 3D projection scintillator tracker can detect the neutron kinetic energy and direction on an event-by-event basis. Through neutron detection, the neutrino energy can be reconstructed precisely. The measurement of neutron kinematics also enables an antineutrino flux measurement using the complete final state particle information in desired channels.
