Abstract

MINERνA (Main INjector ExpeRiment ν-A) is a new few-GeV neutrino cross-section experiment that began taking data in the FNAL NuMI (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Neutrinos at the Main Injector) beam-line in March of 2010. MINERνA employs a fine-grained scintillator detector capable of complete kinematic characterization of neutrino interactions. This paper describes the MINERνA data acquisition system (DAQ) including the readout electronics, software, and computing architecture. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
