Title: Measurement of ν μ-induced charged-current neutral pion production cross sections on mineral oil at E vϵ0.5–2.0 GeV

Abstract

Using a custom 3-Cerenkov ring fitter, we report cross sections for ν μ-induced charged-current single π⁰ production on mineral oil (CH₂) from a sample of 5810 candidate events with 57% signal purity over an energy range of 0.5–2.0 GeV. This includes measurements of the absolute total cross section as a function of neutrino energy, and flux-averaged differential cross sections measured in terms of Q², μ⁻ kinematics, and π⁰ kinematics. The sample yields a flux-averaged total cross section of (9.2±0.3 stat±1.5 syst)×10⁻³⁹ cm²/CH² at mean neutrino energy of 0.965 GeV.
