"First MINOS Results from the NuMI Neutrino Beam"
ABSTRACT:
The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) experiment recently completed its first year of exposure to the NuMI neutrino beam. In this run muon neutrinos produced at Fermilab near Chicago were directed 734.3km through the Earth to the 5,400 ton MINOS far detector located a half mile underground in the Soudan Underground Laboratory in northern Minnesota. This talk will describe the performance of the NuMI neutrino and the MINOS detectors during this initial run and will include presentation of preliminary data from this initial data run.
