Measurement of Single Electron Events in MicroBooNE

Not scheduled


Mr Ivan Caro (Colorado State University)


MicroBooNE is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) detector designed to address the excess of low energy electromagnetic events observed by the MiniBooNE experiment. Electron neutrinos can create a wide variety of topologies when interacting in liquid argon, and this analysis measures events both with (1eNp0π) and without (1e0p0π) visible protons. This poster presents the measurement of single electron events in the MicroBooNE detector, which includes events at low energies. The single electron selection is orthogonal to the 1eNp0π selection which makes it possible to allow migrations between the two channels in a joint fit, and constrain uncertainties associated with low energy protons such as those related to reconstruction, multiplicity and their kinematics.


MicroBooNE neutrino measurements using single electrons help constrain low energy events.
