Title: Inclusive neutrino scattering off the deuteron at low energies in chiral effective field theory

Abstract

Cross sections for inclusive neutrino scattering off deuteron induced by neutral and charge-changing weak currents are calculated from threshold up to 150 MeV energies in a chiral effective field theory including high orders in the power counting. The contributions beyond leading order (LO) in the weak current are found to be small, and increase the cross sections obtained with the LO transition operators by a couple of percent over the whole energy range (0--150) MeV. Furthermore, the cutoff dependence is negligible, and the predicted cross sections are within ~2% of, albeit consistently larger than, corresponding predictions obtained in conventional meson-exchange frameworks.
