Poster Accelerator neutrinos Poster


When a cosmic ray particle collides with the upper atmosphere, it creates a shower of particles that transverse down to the Earth’s surface. These cosmogenic particles provide a challenging background in neutrino experiments. The Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Program is composed of three Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs) that will help us understand the elusive neutrino. Together with a Cosmic Ray Tagger (CRT) system, the ICARUS detector serves as the Far Detector in the SBN Program. The CRT surrounds the detector medium and tags incoming particles allowing us to combat the high flux of comic rays we experience at ICARUS. In this poster, I will show some of the first data analyses done with the fully commissioned CRT system, including studies using CRT timing information and CRT hit reconstruction.
