The MicroBooNE collaboration is currently operating a large 170-ton liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) that is located on the Booster neutrino beam line at Fermilab. The experiment will measure low energy neutrino cross sections and investigate the low energy excess events observed by the MiniBooNE experiment. The detector also serves as a next step in a phased program towards the construction of massive kiloton scale LArTPC detectors for future long-baseline neutrino physics (DUNE) and is the first detector in the LAr-based short-baseline neutrino program at Fermilab.
Please see our About the Physics page for more information about the MicroBooNE physics program, our About the Detector page for more information about the MicroBooNE TPC, and our About the R&D page for more information about the role MicroBooNE plays in the LAr-based neutrino program.

The MicroBooNE spokespeople are Bonnie Fleming (Yale University) and Sam Zeller (Fermilab). The collaboration consists of over 130 scientists from 28 institutions.
