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.

Oral Presentation SBN & DUNE

SBND (Short-Baseline Near Detector) is a 112 ton liquid argon time projection chamber being constructed 110 m from the target of the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam. One of its primary objectives is to test the eV scale sterile neutrino hypothesis by studying short-baseline oscillations along with MicroBooNE and ICARUS T-600 as part of the Short-Baseline Neutrino program. Due to the proximity to the beam, SBND will observe millions of neutrino interactions and will produce an extensive set of neutrino-argon cross section measurements. SBND will also facilitate crucial research and development of liquid argon technology for the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. This talk will summarize the physics program of SBND and the recent progress towards achieving these goals.
