Abstract

We report the and construction status of the INGRID neutrino beam monitor for the T2K experiment. The INGRID detector consists of sixteen modules of iron-scintillator sandwich and will be placed around the neutrino beam center at 280m downstream of the target. By counting the number of neutrino interaction inside each module, we reconstruct and directly monitor the neutrino beam direction and profile. We have tested the active components of INGRID and havefound the light yield satisfies our requirements. Currently the assembly of INGRID is underway and the detector will be installed in March, 2009.
