Webinar: New results from MicroBooNE

Starts: 25 November, 2021

Ends: 25 November, 2021




Abstract: The MicroBooNE liquid-argon time-projection chamber sits in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. Having taken data since 2015, MicroBooNE has illustrated the power of liquid argon for precision neutrino physics with a wide array of measurements including cross-section measurements, detector physics studies and beyond-Standard-Model searches. Recently, MicroBooNE has released results of its first search for a low-energy excess of electromagnetic activity, motivated by investigating the excess previously seen by MiniBooNE. I will present MicroBooNE’s search, which uses six different channels and three independent event-reconstruction frameworks, to search for both electron and photon excesses.
