Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

MicroBooNE is a short baseline neutrino oscillation experiment based at Fermilab that uses Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) technology primarily to investigate the excess of low energy events observed by MiniBooNE study neutrino-argon cross-sections, and perform LArTPC R&D for future experiments, such as DUNE. Multiple Coulomb scattering (MCS) is the only way to determine the momentum of exiting muons in the MicroBooNE detector, essential for reconstructing the neutrino in energetic events. This talk will discuss the status and performance of using multiple Coulomb scattering on exiting tracks in MicroBooNE data.
