The Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND) sits in an intense stream of neutrinos from the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. With only 110 m between the detector volume and the beam target, SBND will have unprecedented statistics of over a million neutrino interactions per year, allowing for precise cross-section measurements and Beyond the Standard Model physics searches. Importantly, SBND is the near detector of the Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program which will allow the study of neutrino oscillations with much greater statistics capabilities than have been previously possible. SBND is a 112-ton active volume Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) neutrino detector and it is anticipated to start operations in late 2023. This seminar will focus on the recent progress in construction and commissioning as well as novel analysis tools and the physics which SBND is expected to probe.
