Physikalisches Kolloquium am 26.06.2023: „Building Radio Detectors to Search for Astrophysical Neutrinos“

20.06.23 | Physikalisches Kolloquium, Veranstaltung

Am Montag, den 26. Juni 2023, um 12:00 Uhr c.t., findet der nächste Termin unseres Physikalischen Kolloquiums statt.

Referent ist Prof. Dr. Anna Nelles (DESY Zeuthen, Erlangen) zum Thema „Building Radio Detectors to Search for Astrophysical Neutrinos“.

The cosmos manages to accelerate particles to energies that are unattainable for man-made accelerators, ultra-high energy cosmic rays. The source in which this happens have been elusive. The arrival directions of these cosmic rays do not point back to their sources, due to their bent trajectories in (extra-)galactic magnetic fields. Their neutral counterpart, the neutrinos, do reveal the sources, however, they require massive volumes to be detected. In particular, at energies of EeV, which correspond to the highest energy cosmic rays. This talk will introduce you to the Radio Neutrino Observatory in Greenland (RNO-G), the world’s largest neutrino detector, currently under construction.

We will walk through science case, experimental challenges, and first data. With being a mid-scale experiment, RNO-G is also a stepping stone towards IceCube-Gen2, which will built on the successful first detection of the astrophysical neutrino flux by IceCube.
