Abstract

From 12000 charged-current D events obtained in an exposure of the Fermilab 15-ft bubble chamber to a high-energy wide-band neutrino beam, the absolute neutrino flux is determined using the reaction n-p. For the total charged-current cross section, t=kE, k=(0.680.040.10)×10-38 cm2/GeV is obtained for E between 10 and 200 GeV. No clear energy dependence of the slope parameter k is observed.
