Measurement of charged pion cross section using newly developed reconstruction tool in the NOvA and dune near detector. -- In Proceedings: 19th Annual Symposium on Graduate Research and Scholarly Projects.

The NOvA and DUNE neutrino experiments are designed to study neutrinos and their interaction properties with matter. Neutrinos, the most abundant massive particle in the universe. They are produced inside the sun, supernovae, galaxies and in nuclear reactors. Neutrinos are electrically neutral particles that come in three types. NOvA and DUNE are both neutrino oscillation experiments which are designed to measure the probability of neutrinos changing types between two detectors that are separated by hundreds of kilometers. Our research group has built a machine learning model to increase the efficiency of determining the point of interaction of particles (Vertex) in the NOvA detector. We plan to use this improved reconstruction to study the likelihood of the production of a charged pion from neutrino interaction. In addition, we are designing a Muon Spectrometer for Phase I of DUNE, which is expected to begin taking data before 2030.
