Proposal Approved to Run at JLab

A proposal lead by CNP Member Camillo Mariani and recent CNP visitor Omar Benhar has been approved to run by the Jefferson National Laboratory's Physics Advisory Committee. The proposed experiment, which is a collaboration of 31 scientists from the US, Europe, and Japan, will study electron scattering on argon. The resuts of this experiment will help the neutrino community to make more reliable estimates of neutrino cross-sections and to model nuclear effects. These measurements will be critical to future neutrino oscillation experiments which have been shown to be very sensitive to these effects in their determination of neutrino oscillation parameters. The experiment is expected to take data in 2016.
