A Search for Neutrino Induced Coherent NC(π0) Production in the MINOS Near Detector.

Cherdack, Daniel.

Abstract: The production of single, highly forward π0 mesons by NC coherent neutrino-nucleus interactions (νμ + N → νμ + N + π0) is a process which probes fundamental aspects of the weak interaction. This reaction may also pose as a limiting background for long baseline searches for ν&mu → νe oscillations if the neutrino mixing angle θ13 is very small. The high-statistics sample of neutrino in... read more
