Hadron production measurements are crucial for helping long-baseline
neutrino oscillation experiments constrain their beam flux
uncertainties. These uncertainties represent a leading systematic
uncertainty on measured neutrino oscillation parameters. At the
NA61/SHINE experiment, interactions of charged hadrons with various
materials relevant to neutrino production are recorded and analyzed.
NA61/SHINE data has been used to significantly improve the
(anti)neutrino flux prediction at the T2K experiment. This talk will
present recent analysis results of 60 GeV/c and 120 GeV/c protons on a
carbon target, interactions relevant to neutrino production at DUNE.
More thin and replica target measurements are forseen at NA61/SHINE
after CERN's Long Shutdown 2.
