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 and LSND, MicroBooNE's broader goals include studying many forms of oscillations, neutrino interactions, and exotics using excellent positional and energy resolution of the liquid argon TPC. Supplementing the rich physics program, MicroBooNE's greater understanding of detector level designs have and continue to inform decisions for detectors such as the Short Baseline Neutrino Detector (SBND) and DUNE.
