"FINeSE: Fermilab Intense Neutrino Scattering Experiment"
The Booster neutrino beamline at Fermilab provides the world's highest
intensity neutrino beam in the 0.5-1.0 GeV energy range. There is a
wealth of neutrino physics that can be accomplished using this beam in
addition to the oscillation physics already underway. A 10 ton
detector located at 100 meters from the recently commissioned Booster
neutrino source would definitively measure the strange quark
contribution to the nucleon spin. In addition, it would also
complement the existing MiniBooNE oscillation experimental program by,
along with MiniBooNE data, making an improved measurement of the search
for muon neutrino disappearance in a region of particular interest to
cosmologists. FINeSE will also be able to investigate
neutrino-scattering cross sections at low energy, in a region where
there is growing interest in neutrino scattering interactions. This
physics program and the FINeSE detector will be presented.
