Hadron-argon Cross Section Measurements in ProtoDUNE

Modern accelerator-based neutrino experiments use complex nuclei, such as argon, as neutrino
targets that rely on nuclear models to unfold the reconstructed neutrino energy to the true neu-
trino energy. The nuclear effects complicate the neutrino oscillation measurements and are not
well-understood, and there are very limited measurements of hadron cross sections on argon.
ProtoDUNE-SP, a prototype liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) for the Deep Un-
derground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) far detector, collected data from a hadronic test beam
at CERN in 2018, including protons, pions, and kaons in the range 1 to 7 GeV/c. In this talk, we
will present the status and results of the many hadron-argon cross section analyses.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and

which is more detailed and complete.
