SBND (Short-Baseline Near Detector) is a 112ton liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) neutrino detector under construction in the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam. Together with MicroBooNE and ICARUS-T600 detectors, SBND will search for short baseline neutrino oscillations in the 1eV^2 mass range. SBND will also perform detailed studies of the physics of neutrino-argon interactions, thanks to a data sample of millions of electron and muon neutrino interactions. Finally SBND plays an important role in the ongoing R&D effort to develop the LArTPC technology, testing several technologies that can be used in a future kiloton-scale neutrino detectors for a long-baseline experiment. We will discuss the detector design, its current status, and the physics program, with a particular focus on the neutrino cross-section measurement prospects.
