"Low-nu Flux Measurement Using Neutrino/Antineutrino-Hydrogen Interactions for Long-baseline Neutrino Oscillation Experiments"

Presented by Hongyue Duyang, University of South Carolina

The next generation long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments such as DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment) aim to solve the remaining questions in neutrino oscillation physics, including neutrinos' mass ordering and CP violation. The near detector(s) will provide crucial constraints on the systematic uncertainties to the oscillation measurements. Flux uncertainty is one of the dominant contributions to the systematic uncertainties. In this talk I present a novel approach of precisely determining the neutrino flux in the near detector(s) of a long-baseline neutrino experiment such as DUNE, by using neutrino/antineutrino-hydrogen interactions with low visible hadronic energy (Low-nu). The application of this method in the proposed KLOE-STT detector is discussed, which could serve as part of the near detector complex of DUNE.
