"MicroBooNE's First Results: Addressing a 5sigma Anomaly with a Precision Detector"


Professor Joshua Spitz , University of Michigan
[Host: Prof. Craig Dukes]
ABSTRACT:

I will present the first oscillation-related results from the MicroBooNE neutrino experiment at Fermilab. These measurements, featuring extensive searches for anomalous rates of both electron neutrinos and neutrino-induced gammas from the Booster Neutrino Beamline with multiple final-state topologies, directly address the 4.8sigma excess of electron-like events seen by the MiniBooNE experiment.
