Title: The ArgoNeuT Experiment

Abstract

The ArgoNeuT (Argon Neutrino Test) Experiment ran on the NuMI beam line at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, from Sep 2009 to Feb 2010. It is the first stage of the US R and D effort on using Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs) as neutrino detectors. ArgoNeuT has collected thousands of beam neutrino events in the 0.1 -10 GeV energy range during its run and, apart from fulfilling its R and D goals, is now publishing physics results, including the first measurement of the inclusive muon neutrino charged current differential cross sections on argon. These proceedings will present these results, together with the perspectives for ongoing and future analyses, as well as ideas for running the detector in a test beam of charged particles.
