Study of quasielastic scattering using charged-current nu(mu)-iron interactions in the MINOS near detector Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 American Physical Society. Kinematic distributions from an inclusive sample of 1.41106 charged-current interactions on iron, obtained using the MINOS near detector exposed to a wide-band beam with peak flux at 3 GeV, are compared to a conventional treatment of neutrino scattering within a Fermi gas nucleus. Results are used to guide the selection of a subsample enriched in quasielastic Fe interactions, containing an estimated 123,000 quasielastic events of incident energies 1
