WG1: Flux Measurements

Mailing list: CENF-ND-Wg1 Microsoft Outlook e-mail file



  • Milind Diwan (BNL)
  • B. Popov (LPNHE, Paris)

The working group will focus on the neutrino flux measurements. Measurements both in-situ and/or with the help of complementary experiments will be considered. Physic studies will be performed to assess advantages and limitations of each approach and define which detector characteristics would be the most suitable to perform the measurement. The WG1 is expected to work in close contact with the WG4 in order to estimate the reduction of the systematics uncertainties for the oscillation analyses.

NEW Reminder: Next CENF-ND general meeting (via vydio) in September

  • In preparation of that meeting, the WGs should auto-organise: define conveners and set regular WG meetings.

  • Given the heterogeneity of the membership, and the need to appropriate the existing knowledge, the first meeting could be devoted to summarise, merge and digest the existing studies for the topics of interest of each WG.

  • Feel free to post material, add link to documents, events etc in the twiki


  • The e-scatter method : define requirements for detector, needed exposure, study dependence on nu angle, possibility to measure nu energy, precision achievable, limitations.
  • The low-nu method: requirements for detector, needed exposure, reliability at low energies, precision achievable, limitations.
  • Hadroproduction
  • Beam monitoring and synergies with muon monitors
  • Other ideas (nu-prism...), but also the “spectrometer” for DUNE beam, enubet
  • Example studies of “real” detectors..
  • Near-to-far extrapolation
