MINERvA results and prospects
December 28, 2022
MINERvA is a dedicated neutrino cross section experiment that ran in the NuMI beamline at Fermilab from 2009 through 2019. MINERvA has made a broad suite of measurements that are informing the neutrino interaction models in use by not only today's oscillation experiments but also by future generations of oscillation experiments. Of particular interest are MINERvA's measurements of the quasielastic-like and pion production processes, since those channels dominate the oscillation landscape. MINERvA has also ushered in the era of using neutrino electron scattering to make precise flux predictions, another important input for oscillation experiments. This paper briefly describes a few recently published results from MINERvA's neutrino and antineutrino scattering sample on the hydrocarbon target including its new flux constraints, and points to some upcoming quasielastic and pion production results that will showcase simultaneous measurements of exclusive final states across different nuclei, ranging from carbon and water to iron and lead.
