The electron (anti-)neutrino component of the T2K neutrino beam constitutes the largest background in the measurement of electron (anti-)neutrino appearance at the far detector. The electron neutrino scattering is measured directly with the T2K off-axis near detector, ND280. The selection of the electron (anti-)neutrino events in the plastic scintillator target from both neutrino and anti-neutrino mode beams is discussed in this paper. The flux integrated single differential charged-current… 
Model-independent bounds on the nonoscillatory explanations of the MiniBooNE excess
We consider the non-oscillatory explanations of the low energy excess of events detected by MiniBooNE. We present a systematic search for phenomenological scenarios based on new physics which can

A New Generation of Neutrino Cross Section Experiments: Challenges and Opportunities
Our knowledge of neutrino cross sections at the GeV scale, instrumental to test CP symmetry violation in the leptonic sector, has grown substantially in the last two decades. Still, their precision

Resonance refraction and neutrino oscillations
Abstract The refraction index and matter potential depend on neutrino energy and this dependence has a resonance character associated to the production of the mediator in the s−channel. For light


Measurement of the inclusive electron neutrino charged current cross section on carbon with the T2K near detector.
The T2K off-axis near detector ND280 is used to make the first differential cross-section measurements of electron neutrino charged current interactions at energies ∼1  GeV as a function of electron
Search for neutral-current induced single photon production at the ND280 near detector in T2K
Neutrino neutral-current induced single photon production is a sub-leading order process for accelerator-based neutrino beam experiments including T2K. It is, however, an important process to

The ratio of the quasielastic, flux-integrated differential cross section in Q^{2} for ν_{e} with that of similarly selectedν_{μ}-induced events from the same exposure is used to probe assumptions that underpin conventional treatments of charged-current ν_e interactions used by long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments.
