Abstract content

SBND is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) experiment and the near detector in the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program. At a 110m baseline & with a 112 tonne active mass, the detector will observe ∼5,000,000 $\nu_{\mu}CC$ interactions at energies of $< E_{\nu} > ∼$650 MeV in its 6.6$×10^{20}$ POT (3 year) exposure. SBND will constrain the systematics on the event rate for sterile neutrino searches in the SBN program and have a rich program of neutrino cross-section measurements. The most abundant topology in SBND, $\nu_{\mu}CC0\pi$, is a key channel for oscillation searches due to its simple final-state: a single muon and no mesons. However, the well-understood $CCQE$ interaction on free nuclei is not sufficient to correctly model the $\nu_{\mu}CC0\pi$ final state in nuclear target experiments. This poster will demonstrate a preliminary $\nu_{\mu}CC0\pi$ selection using automated reconstruction in SBND, in an effort to thoroughly understand its properties in a LArTPC.
