Title: Final Report on Phase I of the Accelerator Neutrino Neutron Interaction Experiment (ANNIE)

Abstract

The Accelerator Neutrino Neutron Interaction Experiment (ANNIE) will address 1) the study of the nature of neutrino-nucleus interactions and 2) the development of promising new technologies for detecting neutrinos. The primary physics goal of ANNIE is to study the abundance of final state neutrons from neutrino-nucleus interactions. Measurements of final-state neutron multiplicity will improve our understanding of the complex, many-body dynamics of neutrino-nucleus interactions. Identifying and counting final state neutrons also provides a useful experimental handle for signal-background separation for future neutrino experiments. In addition to its physics goals, ANNIE is an effort that seeks to apply for the first time a promising new photodetector technology known as Large Area Picosecond Photodetectors (LAPPDs). The Phase I funding allowed to determine the feasibility of the experiment by measuring the neutron background in the experimental hall where the experiment will be located and is currently under construction.
