dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores how neutron interactions can be studied in the NOνA near detector, and the potential use of a deuterium-tritium neutron source. Understanding neutron kinematics within the near detector could aid in constraining antineutrino properties in charged-current quasi-elastic interactions. Refining our knowledge of such an interaction decreases systematic uncertainties, which is crucial for precise neutrino oscillation measurements. Monte-Carlo simulations of mono- energetic neutrons were performed to examine energy deposition, scattering, and neutron energy loss mechanisms.
