The NOMAD experiment is a short base-line search for νμ → ντ oscillations in the CERN neutrino beam. The ντ ’s are searched for through their charged-current interactions followed by the observation of the resulting τ through its electronic, muonic or hadronic decays. These decays are recognized using kinematical criteria necessitating the use of a light target which enables the reconstruction of individual particles produced in the neutrino interactions. This paper describes the various… CONTINUE READING
