Abstract:
The NOvA experiment is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment that uses two functionally identical detectors. The NOvA near detector is situated at Fermilab and the NOvA far detector is located 810 km away in northern Minnesota. The NOvA near detector is used to study the production cross section of neutral current Pi0 events. These events represent an important background for the experiments looking for electron neutrino appearance. So, it is important to constrain this background. The flux-averaged neutral current Pi0 production cross-section is reported. We also report the differential cross-section w.r.t the final state neutral pion kinematics. Additionally, simulation studies are carried out where we look systematically at various ways to improve the neutrino yield for the NOvA off-axis experiment.
