The NOvA long-baseline neutrino experiment will study electron neutrino appearance using two
high resolution, fully active scintillator detectors: a Near Detector at Fermilab and a Far Detector
at Ash River MN. Precision measurements of neutrino oscillations with these detectors require
careful calibration and sophisticated event reconstruction techniques. This poster presents the
detector energy calibration scheme and discusses the strategy planned for the reconstruction
of neutrino events. The performance of these routines will be demonstrated using cosmic and
neutrino data collected in the Near Detector On the Surface prototype currently taking data at
Notes and Changes:
Changes on some front color, defines APD and ADC, and centered the axes labels of Michel electron's plots.
