Description HE Seminar
Speaker: Chris Grant
Title: CAPTAIN: Navigating the ocean of uncertainty in liquid argon neutrino experiments
Host: Svoboda
Room: 432

The Cryogenic Apparatus for Precision Tests of Argon Interactions with Neutrinos (CAPTAIN) program is designed to make measurements of scientific importance to long-baseline neutrino physics and physics topics that will be explored by large underground detectors. To address the challenges facing future long-baseline detectors, the CAPTAIN collaboration is commissioning two liquid Argon time projections chambers (LArTPCs), which will be positioned in particle beams over the next few years. This talk will give an overview of the physics importance of the CAPTAIN program and detail recent efforts to understand neutrino-Argon interactions at energies less than 70 MeV. Potential implications for supernova neutrino triggering and energy reconstructing in LArTPCs will be discussed.
