Abstract
The Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND) is one of the three Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) experiments to be situated along the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) to form Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program at Fermilab. The detector will be situated at 110 m far from the BNB proton target, with 112t active volume, to perform precise measurement of neutrino cross-sections in the energy range of 0.5 - 1 GeV. These measurements are necessary to do a high-sensitivity search for light ($\sim$ 0.1-10 eV$^2$) sterile neutrino oscillations. In addition to physics goals, LArTPC technology developed and used in SBND will form an important step towards the future long-baseline neutrino experiments. This paper will discuss the details of SBND experiment and its current status.
