Abstract

We report a measurement of the ν μ charged current quasielastic cross-sections on carbon in the T2K on-axis neutrino beam. The measured charged current quasielastic cross-sections on carbon at mean neutrino energies of 1.94 GeVand 0.93 GeVare (11.95 ± 0.19(stat) -1.47 +1.82 (syst)) × 10 -39 cm 2 /neutron, and (10.64 ± 0.37(stat) -1.65 +2.03 (syst)) × 10 -39 cm 2 /neutron, respectively. These results agree well with the predictions of neutrino interaction models. In addition, we investigated the effects of the nuclear model and the multi-nucleon interaction.

N2 - We report a measurement of the ν μ charged current quasielastic cross-sections on carbon in the T2K on-axis neutrino beam. The measured charged current quasielastic cross-sections on carbon at mean neutrino energies of 1.94 GeVand 0.93 GeVare (11.95 ± 0.19(stat) -1.47 +1.82 (syst)) × 10 -39 cm 2 /neutron, and (10.64 ± 0.37(stat) -1.65 +2.03 (syst)) × 10 -39 cm 2 /neutron, respectively. These results agree well with the predictions of neutrino interaction models. In addition, we investigated the effects of the nuclear model and the multi-nucleon interaction.
