SciBar Booster Neutrino Experiment (SciBooNE), is a neutrino experiment located at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in the USA.

SciBooNE is designed to make precise measurements of neutrino and antineutrino cross-sections on carbon and iron nuclei. These measurements will be useful for the upcoming T2K experiment which will run in Japan beginning in 2009. SciBooNE will also measure the intrinsic properties of the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab, which sends neutrinos to MiniBooNE, improving the accuracy of the MiniBooNE results.

The SciBooNE detector has three subsystems: SciBar, the EC (electron catcher) and the MRD (muon range detector). They can be seen in the event display of SciBooNE's first neutrino event. [1] SciBooNE successfully completed its neutrino (and antineutrino) beam data run in August, 2008, and is now analyzing the data.

The SciBooNE collaboration is a group of approximately 60 scientists from 17 institutions in five countries (Italy, Japan, Spain, UK and USA). [2]
