"The CLEAR Experiment: Measuring Neutrino-Nucleus Coherent Scattering at the Spallation Neutron Source"
A low-threshold neutrino scattering experiment at a high intensity stopped-pion neutrino source has the potential to measure coherent neutral current neutrino-nucleus elastic scattering. This process has never been observed and presents opportunities for new tests of the Standard Model. A promising prospect for the measurement of this process is a proposed noble-liquid-based experiment called CLEAR (Coherent Low Energy A(Nuclear) Recoils), at the Spallation Neutron Source. This talk will describe the CLEAR experiment and its physics reach.
