Borexino, a real-time device for low energy neutrino spectroscopy is nearing completion of construction in the underground laboratories at Gran Sasso, Italy (LNGS). The experiment’s goal is the direct measurement of the flux of Be solar neutrinos of all flavors via neutrino-electron scattering in an ultra-pure scintillation liquid. Seeded by a series of(More)
The deep ocean is the largest and least known ecosystem on Earth. It hosts numerous pelagic organisms, most of which are able to emit light. Here we present a unique data set consisting of a 2.5-year long record of light emission by deep-sea pelagic organisms, measured from December 2007 to June 2010 at the ANTARES underwater neutrino telescope in the deep(More)
We present the results of the first search for gravitational wave bursts associated with high energy neutrinos. Together, these messengers could reveal new, hidden sources that are not observed by conventional photon astronomy, particularly at high energy. Our search uses neutrinos detected by the underwater neutrino telescope ANTARES in its 5 line(More)
Results of background measurements with a prototype of the Borexino detector were used to search for 478 keV solar axions emitted in the M1-transitions of Li ∗ . The Compton conversion of axion to a photon A+ e→ e+γ, axioelectric effect A+ e+Z → e+Z, decay of axion in two photons A→ 2γ and Primakoff conversion on nuclei A+Z → γ+Z are considered. The upper(More)
A search for neutrino-induced muons in correlation with a selection of 40 gammaray bursts that occurred in 2007 has been performed with the ANTARES neutrino telescope. During that period, the detector consisted of 5 detection lines. The ANTARES neutrino telescope is sensitive to TeV–PeV neutrinos that are predicted from gamma-ray bursts. No events were(More)

The (Antares Modules for Acoustic Detection Under the Sea) AMADEUS system within the (Astronomy with a Neutrino Telescope and Abyss environmental RESsearch) ANTARES neutrino telescope is designed to investigate detection techniques for acoustic signals produced by particle cascades. While passing through a liquid a cascade deposits energy and produces a(More)
The Pauli exclusion principle (PEP) has been tested for nucleons (n, p) in C and O nuclei, using the results of background measurements with the prototype of the Borexino detector, the Counting Test Facility (CTF). The approach consisted of a search for γ, n, p and/or α’s emitted in a non-Paulian transition of 1P shell nucleons to the filled 1S1/2 shell in(More)

Acoustic particle detection is a promising approach for the investigation of ultra-high energy neutrinos. This method utilises the effect that a detectable pressure pulse is generated by the particle shower produced in a neutrino interaction in water at very high energies. The AMADEUS (ANTARES modules for acoustic detection under the sea) system is designed(More)
