  title={The Short-Baseline Neutrino Program at Fermilab},
  author={Pedro A. N. Machado and O. Palamara and D. W. Schmitz},
  journal={Annual Review of Nuclear and Particle Science},
The Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program consists of three liquid argon time-projection chamber detectors located along the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Its main goals include searches for New Physics—particularly eV-scale sterile neutrinos, detailed studies of neutrino–nucleus interactions at the GeV energy scale, and the advancement of the liquid argon detector technology that will also be used in the DUNE/LBNF long-baseline neutrino experiment in the next… Expand
