Abstract:
NOvA is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at Fermilab, USA. It uses two detectors, the Near Detector at Fermilab and the Far Detector at a distance of 810 km at Ash River, Minnesota. NOvA looks for the νe appearance at the Far Detector in the νμ beam produced by the NuMI facility at Fermilab. Neutrino interactions with a π0 in the final state are the dominant background in the search of electron neutrinos since the photons produced can fake the appearance signal for an electron neutrino.
Studying neutral current νμ interactions with a π0 in the final state in the NOvA Near Detector will improve understanding of neutrino induced NC π0 production and reduce background uncertainties for current and future neutrino oscillation experiments. We will present the status of the analysis related to the inclusive NC π0 cross section measurement with the NOvA Near Detector.
