Letter of Intent: The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU)

  title={Letter of Intent: The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU)},
  author={The IceCube Collaboration},
The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU) is a proposed low-energy infill extension to the IceCube Observatory. With detection technology modeled closely on the successful IceCube example, PINGU will feature the world’s largest effective volume for neutrinos at an energy threshold of a few GeV, enabling it to reach its chief goal of determining the neutrino mass hierarchy (NMH) quickly and at modest cost. PINGU will be able to distinguish between the normal and inverted NMH at 3…
