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.

indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software:

Oral Presentation Cross Section Neutrino Program


Jeffrey Kleykamp (University of Rochester)


Minerva is a precision cross section experiment for neutrino scattering processes on various nuclei. Charged-Current Quasi-Elastic (CCQE) cross sections are relevant for neutrino oscillation experiments such as T2K, NOvA and DUNE. This talk describes how MINERvA's nuclear targets are used to measure the scaling in CCQE-like event rates as function of target nucleus. CCQE-like is defined as events with no detected pion. Preliminary results are shown for rates of CCQE-like events produced in the MINERvA medium energy run on water, hydrocarbon, iron, and lead targets. The presented data gives a taste of upcoming cross sections in muon, proton and combined variables.
