Abstract

The cross section of neutrino-induced neutral-current coherent production on a carbon-dominated target is measured in the NOvA near detector. This measurement uses a narrow-band neutrino beam with an average neutrino energy of 2.7,GeV, which is of interest to ongoing and future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. The measured flux-averaged cross section is , consistent with model prediction. This result is the most precise measurement of neutral-current coherent production in the few-GeV neutrino energy region.
