CP3 - Research directions and experiments

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is designed to observe the cosmos from deep within the South Pole ice. Encompassing a cubic kilometer of ice, IceCube searches for neutrinos using more than 5000 sensors buried in the ice. These astronomical messengers provide information to probe the most violent astrophysical sources: events like exploding stars, gamma-ray bursts, and cataclysmic phenomena involving black holes and neutron stars. The CP3 group uses IceCube to search for low-energy neutrinos from such events.

  • This project gathers researchers studying neutrino physics and astrophysics.

  • This project aims at optimising neutrino telescopes, especially the IceCube Neutrino Observatory and KM3NeT, to detect GeV and sub-GeV astrophysical neutrinos. The instruments are then used to search for low-energy neutrinos from transient sources, such as solar flares, compact binary mergers, or gamma-ray bursts.
