Exposing kt-scale water-based liquid scintillator (WbLS) optical detectors to GeV-level neutrino beams provides a unique opportunity to make both a world-leading long-baseline high-energy neutrino oscillation measurement and numerous unprecedented low-energy physics measurements. For long-baseline neutrino oscillation measurements, WbLS detectors such as Theia, have comparable performance to water Cherenkov detectors, as both can use advanced Cherenkov ring reconstruction techniques. In addition for WbLS detectors, scintillation light further improves event discrimination, especially for events containing charged particles below the Cherenkov threshold. Understanding high-energy neutrino event detection capabilities in WbLS is critical to advancing this technology. In this poster, recent studies about the WbLS detector performance are presented.
