  • Extragalactic objects such as active galactic nuclei (AGN) and gamma-ray bursts (GRB) are potential sources for the ultra-high energy cosmic ray flux . Assuming hadronic processes in these sources, a diffuse neutrino flux might be produced together with the c arged cosmic ray component. To measure this diffuse extraterrestrial neutrino flux is one of the ma in goals of the Antarctic Muon and Neutrino Detector Array (AMANDA-II). The neutrino spectrum, based o n a four year data set (2000-2003… CONTINUE READING
