The ArgoNeuT Collaboration reports the first measurement of neutral current π0 production in νμ-argon and ν-μ-argon scattering. This measurement was performed using the ArgoNeuT liquid argon time projection chamber deployed at Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam with an exposure corresponding to 1.2×1020 protons-on-target from the Fermilab main injector and a mean energy for νμ of 9.6 GeV and for ν-μ of 3.6 GeV. We compare the measured cross section and kinematic distributions to predictions from the GENIE and NuWro neutrino interaction event generators.

Abstract

The ArgoNeuT Collaboration reports the first measurement of neutral current π0 production in νμ-argon and ν-μ-argon scattering. This measurement was performed using the ArgoNeuT liquid argon time projection chamber deployed at Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam with an exposure corresponding to 1.2×1020 protons-on-target from the Fermilab main injector and a mean energy for νμ of 9.6 GeV and for ν-μ of 3.6 GeV. We compare the measured cross section and kinematic distributions to predictions from the GENIE and NuWro neutrino interaction event generators.
