The LArIAT (Liquid Argon In A Test Beam) experiment at Fermilab's Test Beam Facility exposes a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) to a charged particle test beam in order to calibrate and characterize LArTPCs response. This is a perfect environment in that particle species and momentum can be preselected while event reconstruction tools, particle identification algorithms, and new detector technologies can be tested. The LArIAT exploration of LArTPC capabilities will provide critical input to existing liquid argon neutrino experiments and will help to improve future precision neutrino oscillation measurements such as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). The work presented here will give an overview of the experiment and highlight recent results.
