Poster Neutrino oscillation Poster


NOvA is a long baseline neutrino experiment with a main goal of measuring neutrino oscillation parameters by observing electron neutrino appearance and muon neutrino disappearance. NOvA uses the NuMI beamline located at Fermilab, Illinois, and two functionally identical detectors: a near detector near Fermilab, and a far detector 810 km away in Ash River, Minnesota. In order to make precise measurements of the oscillation parameters, NOvA must have a robust set of selection algorithms and cuts to separate charged current electron and muon neutrino events from their corresponding backgrounds, as well as energy estimators with good resolution to accurately measure the neutrino energy spectra. This poster will discuss future improvements to the event selection and energy estimation algorithms, with particular focus given to advances in machine learning techniques.
