"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.
