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 Cross Section Neutrino Program


Mr Marcus O'Flaherty (University of Sheffield)


The Accelerator Neutrino Nucleus Interaction Experiment (ANNIE) has recently completed its first phase of data taking. The main physics goals of ANNIE, to be completed in the upcoming Phase II, are a measurement of the neutron abundance from neutrino-nucleus interactions, and a charged-current inclusive cross-section measurement on Oxygen. To achieve these goals the collaboration will use Gadolinium-loaded water to detect neutrons from a neutrino beam, and Large Area Picosecond Photodetectors (LAPPDs) for precise event reconstruction. Phase I used a simplified detector to perform measurements of the neutron flux from upstream interactions, a relevant background for Phase II measurements. This talk will present the results obtained and discuss the progress towards Phase II, scheduled to begin taking data in Fall 2018.
