On the way toward massive Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LAr TPC) detectors for future generation long-baseline neutrino experiments, a “physics R&D” phase is in act: the ArgoNeuT detector (175 l of LAr active volume) has recently been exposed on-axis to the NuMI beam at Fermilab, in front of the MINOS Near Detector. By taking measurements in the 0.1 to 10 GeV energy range, ArgoNeuT is going to produce the first ever data for intermediate energy neutrino interactions in a LAr TPC. The experiment’s research/design goals and physics potentialities, including a charged-current quasi-elastic νμ cross-section and MA parameter measurement, are reviewed. The ArgoNeuT detector performances during the above-ground commissioning run with cosmic rays and the current status of the experiment also shown.
