The MiniBooNE experiment [1] is a ν µ → ν e oscillation search at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory designed to confirm or rule out the LSND signal [2]. The Fermilab Booster accelerates protons to 8 GeV; these protons strike a beryllium target, generating mesons which decay to produce the MiniBooNE ν µ beam. The neutrinos interact in a 12 m diameter… (More)
