Title:The Long-Baseline Neutrino Program and the CAPTAIN Project

Abstract: The international neutrino community is developing a long-baseline
neutrino program based in the United States with a high-intensity
neutrino source and suite of near detectors at Fermilab, and a large
liquid argon time-projection chamber (TPC) in the Sanford Underground
Research Facility. This exciting program will determine the neutrino mass
ordering, search for leptonic CP violation, and over-constrain the leptonic
mixing matrix. The large underground detector enables a great deal more
physics such as searches for beyond-the-standard-model nucleon decay
and measurements of supernova neutrinos. In order to maximize its
potential, several challenges must be overcome. I will discuss the
program, the challenges, and how the Cryogenic Apparatus for Precision
Tests of Argon Interactions with Neutrinos (CAPTAIN) project addresses
the challenges.
