Electron Neutrino Charged-Current Interactions on I-127 in the COHERENT NaIvE Detector

Not scheduled


Samuel Hedges (Duke University)


There are only a handful of targets for which low energy charged-current neutrino-nucleus interactions have been observed. The measurement of these cross sections and their energy dependence can potentially test nuclear models and calculations, including studying $g_A$ quenching through a weak process at a momentum transfer relevant for neutrinoless double beta decay. In 2016, COHERENT deployed a 185 kg NaI[Tl] prototype detector to study backgrounds for a ton-scale detector and to make an initial measurement of the inclusive charged-current cross section on $^{127}$I. Current detector and analysis status will be presented, along with plans for a ton-scale detector, potentially capable of simultaneously measuring the charged-current interaction on $^{127}$I and coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering on $^{23}$Na.
