Abstract:
"Electron Neutrino Identification in NOvA Detectors"

The NO$\nu$A long-baseline neutrino experiment is designed to search for oscillations of muon neutrinos to electron neutrinos. These oscillations are sensitive to the neutrino mass hierarchy and CP violation effects. NO$\nu$A will use the off-axis muon neutrino beam produced by the NuMI beam at Fermilab. It consists of a Near Detector at Fermilab and a Far Detector 810 km away at Ash River, Minnesota. The main challenge of the experiment is the identification of the $\nu_e$ charged-current events. In this talk, I will discuss the several techniques developed to separate the charged-current signal events from neutral current background events.
