Current and future generation neutrino oscillation experiments aim towards a high-precision measurement of the oscillation parameters, which requires an unprecedented understanding of neutrino-nucleus scattering. Charged-current quasi-elastic (CCQE) scattering is the process in
which the neutrino produces a charged lepton and removes a single intact nucleon from the nucleus without producing any additional particles. For existing and forthcoming accelerator–based neutrino experiments, CCQE interactions are either the dominant process or part of the signal.
MicroBooNE is the first liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) commissioned as part of the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program at Fermilab and its excellent particle reconstruction capabilities allow the detection of neutrino interactions using exclusive final states, which will play
a crucial role in the success of future kiloton LArTPC detectors such as DUNE. The APS DNP talk on November 1 2020 presented the first measurement of exclusive numu-Ar CCQE–like flux integrated total and differential
cross sections using single proton knock–out interactions recorded by the MicroBooNE LArTPC detector, which has comparable acceptance to deuterium Bubble Chambers.
