On the Radar detection of high-energy neutrino-induced cascades in ice; From Radar scattering cross-section to sensitivity

In recent works we discussed the feasibility of the radar detection technique as a new method to probe high-energy cosmic-neutrino induced plasmas in ice. Using the different properties of the

Simulation and Optimisation for the Radar Echo Telescope for Cosmic Rays

The SLAC T-576 beam test experiment showed the feasibility of the radar detection technique to probe high-energy particle cascades in dense media. Corresponding particle-level simulations indicate

Suggestion of coherent radio reflections from an electron-beam induced particle cascade

Testbeam experiment 576 (T576) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory sought to make the first measurement of coherent radio reflections from the ionization produced in the wake of a high-energy

Observation of Radar Echoes from High-Energy Particle Cascades.

The observation of radar echoes from the ionization trails of high-energy particle cascades is reported, which may lead to a viable neutrino detection technology for energies ≳10^{16}  eV.

Investigating signal properties of UHE particles using in-ice radar for the RET experiment

The Radar Echo Telescope (RET) experiment plans to use the radar technique to detect Ultra-High Energy (UHE) cosmic rays and neutrinos in the polar ice sheets. Whenever an UHE particle collides with

The Radar Echo Telescope for Cosmic Rays (RET-CR) is a pathfinder experiment for the Radar Echo Telescope for Neutrinos (RET-N), a next-generation in-ice detection experiment for ultra high energy

The Radar Echo Telescope for Neutrinos

We present the Radar Echo Telescope for Neutrinos (RET-N). RET-N focuses on the detection of the cosmic neutrino flux at >PeV energies by means of the radar detection technique. This method aims to

Simulation of in-ice cosmic ray air shower induced particle cascades

We present simulations of the development of high-energy cosmic-ray air showers penetrating high-altitude ice layers that can be found at the polar regions. We use a combination of the CORSIKA Monte

Modeling in-ice radio propagation with parabolic equation methods

We investigate the use of parabolic equation (PE) methods for solving radio-wave propagation in polar ice. PE methods provide an approximate solution to Maxwell's equations, in contrast to full-field

Probing the radar scattering cross-section for high-energy particle cascades in ice

Recently the radar scattering technique to probe neutrino induced particle cascades above PeV energies in ice was investigated. The feasibility of the radar detection method was shown to crucially

Accelerator Measurements of Magnetically Induced Radio Emission from Particle Cascades with Applications to Cosmic-Ray Air Showers.

The first laboratory measurements that validate electrodynamics simulations used in air shower modeling are presented, confirming modern predictions that the magnetically induced emission in a dielectric forms a cone that peaks at the Cherenkov angle and showing that the simulations reproduce the data within systematic uncertainties.

Observation of the Askaryan effect: coherent microwave Cherenkov emission from charge asymmetry in high-energy particle cascades.

The first direct experimental evidence for the charge excess in high-energy particle showers and corresponding radio emission predicted nearly 40 years ago by Askaryan is presented, providing strong support for experiments designed to detect high- energy cosmic rays such as neutrinos via coherent radio emission from their cascades.

Performance of two Askaryan Radio Array stations and first results in the search for ultrahigh energy neutrinos

Ultrahigh energy neutrinos are interesting messenger particles since, if detected, they can transmit exclusive information about ultrahigh energy processes in the Universe. These particles, with
