Poster Neutrino interactions Poster


MicroBooNE utilizes compelling liquid argon time projection chamber technology with excellent tracking and energy deposition measurement capabilities. With fast data acquisition it will be possible to utilize ``trigger primitive" outputs containing hit information for online triggering on many types of topologies without full reconstruction. A trigger algorithm is being developed to select cosmic muon-induced electromagnetic scatters with a proton in the final state, i.e. $\mu + Ar \rightarrow 1\mu 1p 0\pi$, which is strikingly similar to CC QE-like $\nu_{\mu} + Ar \rightarrow 1\mu 1p 0\pi$, effectively sharing the same final state. However, lack of knowledge of the initial neutrino's energy is not an issue with incoming cosmic muons as their visible energy deposition constrains their incident energy before scattering. This poster will present an exploration of this idea, looking at how such information can place stringent constraints on the understanding of neutrino-nucleus interactions via charged lepton-nucleus interactions.
