High Energy Physics Seminar

Speaker: Minerba Betancourt, FNAL

Title:  Latest Results from the MINERvA Experiment

Refreshments available at 1:30 pm.

Abstract:
The discovery of neutrino oscillations opened new windows for the study of neutrino physics. In this talk, I will give an overview of the neutrino physics program at Fermilab and the remaining questions for the neutrino physics. In order to answer the open questions in neutrino physics, it is critical that we understand neutrino interactions and nuclear effects on these interactions extremely well. MINERvA is a neutrino scattering experiment which makes precision measurements of cross sections and studies of nuclear effects. Several cross sections measurements will be presented, including quasi-elastic, pion production as well as studies of nuclear effects. The quasi-elastic and pion production are the largest contributions to the signal of many oscillation experiments.
