MicroBooNE is a large 170-ton liquid-argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) neutrino experiment located on the Booster neutrino beamline at Fermilab. The experiment first started collecting neutrino data in October 2015.
MicroBooNE will investigate the low energy excess events observed by the MiniBooNE experiment, measure a suite of low energy neutrino cross sections, and investigate astro-particle physics.
MicroBooNE is also contributing crucial input towards the construction of massive kiloton scale LArTPC detectors for the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and is the first detector in the Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program at Fermilab.
The MicroBooNE spokespeople are Bonnie Fleming (Yale University) and Justin Evans (University of Manchester). The international collaboration consists of ~180 scientists from 36 institutions.
