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.
ProjectsClick the title to show project description.
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.
