dc.description.abstractThe NOvA (NuMI Off-axis νe Appearance) long-baseline neutrino experiment utilizes neutrino oscillations to gain insight into the unanswered questions in neutrino physics and further our knowledge of particle physics. The answers can only be arrived at through precise and accurate measurements of neutrino properties. To obtain these high precision results using the NOvA experiment background signals and noise must be understood and characterized. The work described is a study of noise characteristics from the electronics and photosensors used in the near detector of the NOvA experiment. A number of methods for the identification and elimination of noise in the electronics are discussed.
