Analysis of the Fermi-LAT data has revealed two extended structures above and below the Galactic Centre emitting gamma rays with a hard spectrum, the so-called Fermi bubbles. Hadronic models attempting to explain the origin of the Fermi bubbles predict the emission of high-energy neutrinos and gamma rays with similar fluxes. The ANTARES detector, a neutrino telescope located in the Mediterranean Sea, has a good visibility to the Fermi bubble regions. Using data collected from 2008 to 2011 no… 

Neutrino fluxes from the Galactic plane and the ANTARES limit

The existence of cosmic neutrinos has been reported by the IceCube Collaboration. Though this measurement is consistent with an isotropic neutrino flux, a sub-dominant galactic component coming from

Search for neutrinos from the Fermi Bubbles with the ANTARES telescope

Two additional years of data (2014 and 2015, previous analysis: 2008–13) from the ANTARES neutrino telescope have been analysed using track-like event signatures from the Fermi Bubbles region. Six

Diffuse flux results from the ANTARES neutrino telescope

The ANTARES neutrino telescope is located in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of France and offers a high visibility of the Galactic plane. Its main scientific goal is the detection of cosmic

ANTARES Deep Sea Neutrino Telescope Results

The ANTARES experiment is currently the largest underwater neutrino telescope in the Northern Hemisphere. It is taking high quality data since 2007. Its main scientific goal is to search for high

ANTARES constraints on a Galactic component of the IceCube cosmic neutrino flux

The IceCube evidence for cosmic neutrinos has inspired a large number of hypothesis on their origin, mainly due to the poor precision on the measurement of the direction of showering events. A

Search of dark matter annihilation in the galactic centre using the ANTARES neutrino telescope

A search for high-energy neutrinos coming from the direction of the Galactic Centre is performed using the data recorded by the ANTARES neutrino telescope from 2007 to 2012. The event selection



High energy neutrinos from the Fermi bubbles.

The detection or exclusion of neutrinos from the Fermi bubbles will discriminate between hadronic and leptonic models, thus bringing unique information on the still mysterious origin of these objects and on the time scale of their formation.

Particle acceleration and the origin of gamma-ray emission from Fermi Bubbles

Fermi LAT has discovered two extended gamma-ray bubbles above and below the galactic plane. We propose that their origin is due to the energy release in the Galactic center (GC) as a result of


In this paper, a time-integrated search for point sources of cosmic neutrinos is presented using the data collected from 2007 to 2010 by the ANTARES neutrino telescope. No statistically significant

Searching for the high-energy neutrino counterpart signals: The case of the Fermi bubbles signal and of dark matter annihilation in the inner Galaxy

The recent uncovering of the Fermi bubbles/haze in the Fermi $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray data has generated theoretical work to explain such a signal of hard $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays in combination

Fermi gamma-ray "bubbles" from stochastic acceleration of electrons.

This work explores the alternative possibility that the relativistic electrons are undergoing stochastic 2nd-order Fermi acceleration by plasma wave turbulence through the entire volume of the bubbles.


Data from the Fermi-LAT reveal two large gamma-ray bubbles, extending 50° above and below the Galactic center (GC), with a width of about 40° in longitude. The gamma-ray emission associated with


Recently, the Fermi Space Telescope discovered two large γ-ray emission regions, the so-called Fermi bubbles, that extend up to ∼50° above and below the Galactic center (GC). The γ-ray emission from

Fermi bubbles: giant, multibillion-year-old reservoirs of Galactic center cosmic rays.

It is shown that the bubbles of emission centered on the core of the Galaxy and extending to around ± 10 kpc from the Galactic plane are naturally explained as due to a population of relic cosmic ray protons and heavier ions injected by processes associated with extremely long time scale and high areal density star formation in the Galactic center.
