Type: Oral Presentation Session: Short Baseline Neutrino Program
MicroBooNE is an 85-ton single-phase Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) and the first of a trio of LArTPCs in the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program which will search for a light sterile neutrino and measure neutrino-argon interaction cross sections. Located in the Booster neutrino beam at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, MicroBooNE has been taking neutrino data since October 2 ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Short Baseline Neutrino Program
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 ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Short Baseline Neutrino Program
Located at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, MicroBooNE is the largest currently operating liquid argon neutrino detector in the world, making it an excellent source of valuable physics discoveries and R&D advancements for future liquid argon experiments. While MicroBooNE's flagship physics goal is investigating the low-energy short-baseline neutrino appearance anomaly seen in MiniBooNE a ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Short Baseline Neutrino Program
I present a study of the distortions on track reconstruction caused by the space charge effect within the MicroBooNE Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC). The space charge effect is the accumulation of slow-moving positive ions in a detector primarily from ionization by cosmic ray muons. Spatial and temporal distortions of ionization electrons result from this effect in addition to diff ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Short Baseline Neutrino Program
Neutrino physics is entering an age of precision measurements. A number of experiments have firmly established the existence of neutrino oscillations and determined the corresponding squared mass differences and mixing angles. These measurements have provided unambiguous evidence that neutrinos have non-vanishing masses. The large θ 13 mixing angle will enable future experiments to search f ... More
