Abstract:
NOvA is a long-baseline (810 km) neutrino oscillation experiment. It uses the NuMI neutrino beam from Fermilab and two mostly active, segmented, liquid scintillator off-axis detectors that offer a remarkable capability in event identification. One of the main purposes of the 293 ton Near Detector at Fermilab is to measure the unoscillated neutrino energy spectrum, which can be used to predict the neutrino energy spectrum at the 14 kton Far Detector at Ash River, MN. In addition to that it also provides an excellent opportunity to measure cross sections with high statistics. Improved understanding of neutrino-nucleus interactions will benefit current and future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. In this talk we present the status of the measurement of the inclusive $\nu_{\mu}$ charge current cross section in the NOvA Near Detector.
