The sources of cosmic rays with energies above 55 EeV are still mysterious. A guaranteed associated flux of ultra high energy neutrinos known as the cosmogenic neutrino flux will be measured by next generation radio facilities, such as the proposed Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND). By using the orthogonal information provided by the cosmogenic neutrino flux, we here determine the prospects of GRAND to constrain the source redshift evolution and the chemical composition of the… 
Astrophysical neutrinos: signal and background in searches for fundamental physics
As the experimental boundaries of the energy and intensity frontiers are pushed forwards, astroparticle physics increasingly becomes a key tool to understand the microscopic and macroscopic
Progress towards characterizing ultrahigh energy cosmic ray sources
We use a multimessenger approach to constrain realistic mixed composition models of ultrahigh energy cosmic ray sources using the latest cosmic ray, neutrino, and gamma-ray data. We build on the
Determining the fraction of cosmic-ray protons at ultrahigh energies with cosmogenic neutrinos
Cosmogenic neutrinos are produced when ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) interact with cosmological photon fields. Limits on the diffuse flux of these neutrinos can be used to constrain the

TheGRANDproject aims to detect ultra-high-energy neutrinos, cosmic rays and gamma rays, with an array of 200, 000 radio antennas over 200, 000 km2, split into ∼ 20 sub-arrays of ∼ 10, 000 km2
IceCube-Gen2: the window to the extreme Universe
The observation of electromagnetic radiation from radio to $\gamma$-ray wavelengths has provided a wealth of information about the universe. However, at PeV (10$^{15}$ eV) energies and above, most of
The Next-Generation Radio Neutrino Observatory -- Multi-Messenger Neutrino Astrophysics at Extreme Energies
RNO is the mid-scale discovery instrument designed to make the first observation of neutrinos from the cosmos at extreme energies, with sensitivity well beyond current instrument capabilities. This
Astrophysics Uniquely Enabled by Observations of High-Energy Cosmic Neutrinos
High-energy cosmic neutrinos carry unique information about the most energetic non-thermal sources in the Universe. This white paper describes the outstanding astrophysics questions that neutrino
Detector requirements for model-independent measurements of ultrahigh energy neutrino cross sections
The ultrahigh energy range of neutrino physics (above ∼ 10 7 GeV), as yet devoid of detections, is an open landscape with challenges to be met and discoveries to be made. Neutrino-nucleon cross
White Paper on New Opportunities at the Next-Generation Neutrino Experiments (Part 1: BSM Neutrino Physics and Dark Matter)
With the advent of a new generation of neutrino experiments which leverage high-intensity neutrino beams for precision measurements, it is timely to explore physics topics beyond the standard
Multi-messenger detection prospects of gamma-ray burst afterglows with optical jumps
Some afterglow light curves of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) exhibit very complex temporal and spectral features, such as a sudden intensity jump about one hour after the prompt emission in the optical


Cosmogenic photon and neutrino fluxes in the Auger era
The interaction of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) with pervasive photon fields generates associated cosmogenic fluxes of neutrinos and photons due to photohadronic and photonuclear processes
