Measurement of Single Electron Events in MicroBooNE

MicroBooNE is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber 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 across the full range of neutrino energy. The single
electron selection (1e0p0π) is orthogonal to the 1eNp0π selection which makes it possible
for events to migrate 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.
