ArgoNeuT hits a home run with measurements of neutrinos in liquid argon

A negative muon and positive pion candidate event in ArgoNeuT. The figure shows the 2-D projections in the two wire planes. The color of the track respects the charge read by the wire planes, wire by wire.

The ArgoNeuT experiment was the first ever to make cross-section measurements of neutrino and antineutrino (the neutrino’s antimatter counterpart) interactions resulting in a muon, a charged pion and any number of nucleons in the final state using argon as the target.
