Measurement of Hadron Production Off the NuMI Target in the MIPP Experiment

The fixed-target Main Injector Particle Production (MIPP) Experiment was designed to produce large sets of hadron production data on variety of nuclear targets using a range of beam particles and momenta. The spectrometer has excellent momentum resolution, and particle identification is determined for particles ranging between 0.3 - 80 GeV/c using $dE/dx$, time-of-flight and Cherenkov radiation measurements. MIPP collected $\sim1.6x10^6$ events of 120 GeV Main Injector protons striking a spare NuMI target. This talk will review the experimental setup, performance of the detectors, and preliminary results of the measurement of pion and Kaon yields from the NuMI target data.
