  2. 1. Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions in the Few-GeV Region • Oscillation analysis need cross section and spectrum. Y(En)=(Neutrino flux) ·s(En) · (Number of target nucleons). • Accurate measurements of CC neutrino cross sections exist for En>20 GeV,with accuracy ±3%.Naples@ nuint02 • Measurements of neutrino-nucleus cross sections at En=0.5-20 GeV are still poor. Accuracy is about ±20% and spectrum even worse. Nuclear effects become significant. • Neutrino oscillation experiments (K2K,MiniBooNE, MINOS,OPERA, ICARUS, JHF-Kamioka) have to work in this complex energy region. • We want to measure nm→ne oscillations atsin22q13~0.01, especially after KamLAND result. Cross section and spectrum at a few % level are needed in the future. • Weak nucleon form factor itself is very interesting. We need to update both vector and axial-vector form factors if we want to predict the spectrum better than 10%. Horowitz@nuint02,Singh@nuint01, Budd@nuint02 M.Sakuda Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions

  4. 2. Data of low-energy neutrino-nucleus scattering • Overall flux error is about ±10-20% at low energy. • Experiments below 20 GeV were performed with wide-band beams. • Many processes contribute equally, with ±20% errors. • Quasi-elastic scattering • Single pion production • Multi-pion production/DIS • Coherent-pion production • NC • Nuclear effects can be different for different target. • Fermi-motion and Binding energy • Pauli exclusion effects • Nuclear rescattering • Pion absorption M.Sakuda Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions

Thus, the lepton energy kinematics can be checked within a few MeV. For example, accuracy of <10 MeV is needed in En reconstruction in the future while the present accuracy is about 20-40 MeV due to the energy calibration and nuclear effects.

  28. 5. Summary • The accuracy of Neutrino-Nucleus (n-N) interactions at En=0.1-10 GeV is about +-10% or more. We will combine both e-N data and n-N data to understand n-N interactions better. It is very important for the running and the future neutrino oscillation experiments. • A strong community of nuclear and high-energy physicists has been formed at NuInt01/02 Workshop. Some JLAB people not only collaborate on the analysis of form factors and nuclear effects, but also ask proposals for measurements at JLAB usuful for neutrino physics. • K2K near detectors (1kton/SciFi) : producing new data. BooNE : soon. K2K upgraded detector (SciBar) will be complete this summer. MINOS near detector and ICARUS will come in 2006. • Joint nuclear/high-energy physics proposals at NuMI for dedicated measurement of neutrino-nucleus interactions are being discussed. Measurement of strange spin by NC/CC is proposed. • Re-analysis of old data (BNL,ANL) using current formalism is still valuable. • Open Neutrino Generators are available: Nuance and Fluka.
