High‐Energy Neutrinos from the Cosmos

Abstract: The IceCube project transformed a cubic kilometer of transparent natural Antarctic ice into a Cherenkov detector. It discovered PeV‐energy neutrinos originating beyond our galaxy with an energy flux that is comparable to that of GeV‐energy gamma rays and EeV‐energy cosmic rays. These neutrinos provide the only unobstructed view of the cosmic accelerators that power the highest energy radiation reaching us from the universe. The results from IceCube's first decade of operations, foremost the measurement of the … Show more

“…Cherenkov light induced by relativistic charged particles passing through the medium is detected in the array, and the recorded information can be used to reconstruct the direction and energy of the incoming neutrino by which those charged particles were produced. All-flavour neutrino interactions can be detected in neutrino telescopes which have already discovered the existence of cosmic fluxes [10]. Track-like events, induced by charged current muon neutrino interactions allow a precise directional reconstruction (typically better than 0.5 • angular resolution), while all the other neutrino flavours will produce shower-like signature in which the direction is rather poorly reconstructed (2-10 • uncertainties) but the energy can be obtained with quite good accuracy (up to ∼15% uncertainties).…”

“…On the other hand, the discovery of GCR accelerators using neutrinos from hadronic mechanisms will require data from the next generation neutrino telescope KM3NeT [16] which is currently being built in the Mediterranean Sea and has been specifically optmised for this task [17]. [8], and the all-sky diffuse flux measured in IceCube [10].…”

“…For example, the very high-energy neutrinos that IceCube detected could originate from a variety of astrophysical sources, including active galactic nuclei, supernovae, hypernovae, white dwarf mergers, and others (Mészáros 2017). An important part of the motivation for building larger next-generation detectors like P-ONE is to get high enough angular resolution to attribute the neutrinos detected to localized astrophysical sources, which researchers can also study using "multimessenger" approaches: investigating the same sources using optical, radio, gamma-ray, and gravitational wave astronomy (Halzen 2021). Higher resolution and multimessenger follow-up will allow researchers to learn about the variety of conditions that generate these high-energy neutrinos and study how differences in astrophysical source conditions affect the associated neutrino flux.…”

“…The NeUtrino and Seismic Electromagnetic Signals (NUSES) satellite will operate on a polar Sun-Synchronous Low Earth Orbit (LEO) at an altitude of 550 km, 97.8 • inclination, along the day/night boundary line. The mission has the main purpose of developing new technological and observation strategies for the measurement of the low energy cosmic ray component [1,2], together with the characterization of the Sun-Earth system [3], the investigation of the magnetosphereionosphere-lithosphere coupling (MILC) [4] and the characterization of high energy proton-induced background critical for the detection of astrophysical neutrinos [5] by future missions.…”
