This document presents the physics case for bringing SciBar, the fully active, finely segmented tracking detector at KEK, to the FNAL Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) line. This unique opportunity arose with the termination of K2K beam operations in 2005. At that time, the SciBar detector became available for use in other neutrino beam lines, including the BNB, which has been providing neutrinos to the MiniBooNE experiment since late 2002. The physics that can be done with SciBar/BNB can be put into… Expand

SciBooNE, located in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab, collected data from June 2007 to August 2008 to accurately measure muon neutrino and anti-neutrino cross sections on carbon below 1 GeVExpand
Why a NESSiE-like experiment at SBL is needed?
The NESSiE experiment is designed to perform an accurate measurement of muon-neutrino disappearance at small L/E, in order to severely constrain models with more than three-standard neutrinos, orExpand

In this talk I have raised the question of how the future discovery of leptonic CP violation can be made robust even at accepting the rather large current experimental uncertainties in our knowledgesExpand
Unified approach for nucleon knock-out and coherent and incoherent pion production in neutrino interactions with nuclei
We present a theory of neutrino interactions with nuclei aimed at the description of the partial cross sections, namely quasielastic and multinucleon emission, coherent and incoherent single-pionExpand

Search for coherent charged pion production in neutrino-carbon interactions.
No evidence for coherent pion production is observed, and an upper limit of is set on the cross section ratio of coherent pions production to the total charged-current interaction at 90% confidence level, which is the first experimental limit for coherent charged pionProduction in the energy region of a few GeV.
