Preliminary Proposal to Study Neutrino Interactions with Neutrons and Protons Using the 15-Foot Bubble Chamber at NAL Filled with Deuterium

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We propose an investigation of neutrino interactions in the deuterium filled 15-foot bubble chamber at NAL. A 250,000 picture run with 200 GeV protons should yield very interesting physics even with a 'bare' deuterium chamber. This addendum extends the physics discussion in the original proposal to the search for charm particles, and the study of neutral currents. A ({nu}{sub {mu}},d) bubble chamber exposure with E{sub P} = 200-300 GeV is the most promising experiment that can be done to search for the type of charm particles that are essential to Gauge theories of weak and electromagnetic interactions. This addendum updates ... continued below

Description

We propose an investigation of neutrino interactions in the deuterium filled 15-foot bubble chamber at NAL. A 250,000 picture run with 200 GeV protons should yield very interesting physics even with a 'bare' deuterium chamber. This addendum extends the physics discussion in the original proposal to the search for charm particles, and the study of neutral currents. A ({nu}{sub {mu}},d) bubble chamber exposure with E{sub P} = 200-300 GeV is the most promising experiment that can be done to search for the type of charm particles that are essential to Gauge theories of weak and electromagnetic interactions. This addendum updates and summarizes Proposal 151. We propose a 300,000 picture run of the 15-foot bubble chamber filled with deuterium exposed to a wide band, 2 horn, neutrino beam from protons of energy E{sub p} {ge} 300 GeV. The analysis will be based primarily on the bare bubble chamber data but will also use the EMI wherever useful. The physics purposes of the experiment include: (1) Extensive search for charmed baryons and mesons; Determination of the ratio of the total charged current cross sections {sigma}({nu},n)/{sigma}({nu},0); (3) Determination of d{sup 2}{sigma}{sup C.C.}/dxdy for ({nu},n) and ({nu},p) interactions separately; (4) Study of ({nu},n) and ({nu},p) neutral current interactions; and (5) Physics of Special Channels in charged current and neutral current events.
