Abstract

We report measurements of the flux-integrated νµ and νµ + νµ charged-current cross-sections on water and hydrocarbon targets using the T2K anti-neutrino beam, with a mean neutrino energy of 0.86 GeV. The signal is defined as the (anti-) neutrino charged-current interaction with one induced µ± and no detected charged pion nor proton. These measurements are performed using a new WAGASCI module recently added to the T2K setup in combination with the INGRID Proton module. The phase space of muons is restricted to the high-detection efficiency region, pµ > 400 MeV/c and θµ < 30, in the laboratory frame. Absence of pions and protons in the detectable phase space of”pπ > 200 MeV/c and θπ < 70”, and”pp > 600 MeV/c and θp < 70” is required. In this paper, both of the νµ cross-sections and νµ + νµ cross-sections on water and hydrocarbon targets, and their ratios are provided by using D'Agostini unfolding method. The results of the integrated νµ cross-section measurements over this phase space are σH2O = (1.082 ± 0.068(stat.)+0.145/-0.128(syst.)) × 1039 cm2/nucleon, σCH = (1.096 ± 0.054(stat.)+0.132/-0.117(syst.)) × 1039 cm2/nucleon, and σH2OCH = 0.987 ± 0.078(stat.)+0.093/-0.090(syst.). The νµ + νµ cross-section is σH2O = (1.155 ± 0.064(stat.)+0.145/-0.129(syst.)) × 1039 cm2/nucleon, σCH = (1.159 ± 0.049(stat.)+0.129/-0.115(syst.)) × 1039 cm2/nucleon, and σH2OCH = 0.996 ± 0.069(stat.)+0.083/-0.078(syst.).
