Few-GeV energy neutrino quasielastic measurements

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In these proceedings, I describe the status of quasielastic cross section measurements at energies of a few GeV. The main new measurements discussed here are an absolute cross section and also a Q2 shape measurement by NOMAD, which has recently been published, and a preliminary Q2 shape measurement by the MINOS collaboration. The NOMAD detector has good statistics and very good reconstruction of the recoil proton. The MINOS detector has enormous statistics, and makes measurements on iron, not carbon, but is using a sample that specifically has very low hadronic energy (one-track sample) and no reconstructable proton. From the discussions at NuFact09 and elsewhere, I compare these measurements with other recent results at lower energy.
