### Measurement of the intrinsic electron neutrino component in the T2K neutrino beam with the ND280 detector

Abstract:

© 2013 American Physical Society.The T2K experiment has reported the first observation of the appearance of electron neutrinos in a muon neutrino beam. The main and irreducible background to the appearance signal comes from the presence in the neutrino beam of a small intrinsic component of electron neutrinos originating from muon and kaon decays. In T2K, this component is expected to represent 1.2% of the total neutrino flux. A measurement of this component using the near detector (ND280), l...
