Abstract:
The NOvA experiment is an off-axis long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment seeking to measure $\nu_{\mu}$ disappearance and $\nu_{e}$ appearance in a $\nu_{\mu}$ beam originating at Fermilab. In addition to measuring the unoscillated neutrino spectra for the purposes of predicting the oscillated neutrino spectrum in the far detector, the 293-ton near detector also enables high-statistics investigation into neutrino scattering in numerous reaction channels. This talk will discuss the various near detector analyses currently in progress, including inclusive measurements of both electron and muon neutrino charged-current interactions, semi-inclusive measurements of pion and proton production, studies of the nuclear medium modifications to neutrino interactions, and efforts to constrain the off-axis NuMI flux using the elastic scattering of neutrinos from atomic electrons.
