Antineutrino interactions in the deuterium filled 15 foot bubble chamber

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

It is proposed to study the interactions of antineutrinos in deuterium. The initial request is for 300,000 pictures out of a total of one million pictures using the two-horn broad band system with 10{sup 13} protons (300 GeV) per pulse. We plan to use the external muon identifier. The physics motivation includes the following: (1) Search for charmed mesons. (2) Study of elastic and inelastic hyperon production. Only in anti-neutrino interactions can we study the {Delta}S = 1 charged current in quasi two-body interactions at energies and momentum transfers higher than that available in decays. (3) Study of the quasi ... continued below

Only in anti-neutrino interactions can we study the {Delta}S = 1 charged current in quasi two-body interactions at energies and momentum transfers higher than that available in decays. (3) Study of the quasi elastic and pion production reactions. These data will be combined with the {nu}p data of our experiment (E-31). (4) Inclusive study of charged current interactions off neutrons and protons. (5) We will study the structure of the neutral current interaction. We will check the absence of {Delta}S = 1 neutral currents. (6) We will also look for di-muon events using the EMI. (7) We are interested in the possibility of inserting a three-radiation length metal plate in the bubble chamber to serve as a gamma converter and an electron detector.
