Abstract

T2K has performed the first measurement of ν μ inclusive charged current interactions on carbon at neutrino energies of ∼ 1     GeV where the measurement is reported as a flux-averaged double differential cross section in muon momentum and angle. The flux is predicted by the beam Monte Carlo and external data, including the results from the NA61/SHINE experiment. The data used for this measurement were taken in 2010 and 2011, with a total of 10.8 × 10 19 protons-on-target. The analysis is performed on 4485 inclusive charged current interaction candidates selected in the most upstream fine-grained scintillator detector of the near detector. The flux-averaged total cross section is ⟨ σ CC ⟩ ϕ = ( 6.91 ± 0.13 ( stat ) ± 0.84 ( syst ) ) × 10 − 39     cm 2 nucleon for a mean neutrino energy of 0.85 GeV.
