A high-statistics study of low-energy neutrino-nucleus scattering in the NuMI beam at Fermilab

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The NuMI Facility at Fermilab is providing an extremely intense beam of neutrinos for the MINOS Neutrino Oscillation Experiment. It an ideal place for a high statistics (anti)neutrino-nucleon/nucleus scattering experiments, and the MINER{nu}A experiment, a collaboration of elementary-particle and nuclear physicists, is planning to install a fully active fine-grained solid scintillator detector in this beam. The overall goals of the experiment are to measure absolute exclusive cross-sections, study nuclear effects in {nu} - A interactions and perform a systematic study of the resonance-DIS transition region including the extraction of high-x Bj parton distribution functions at low Q2.
