The construction of the Agua Negra tunnels that will link Argentina and Chile under the Andes, the world longest mountain range, opens the possibility to build the first deep underground labo- ratory in the Southern Hemisphere. This laboratory has the acronym ANDES (Agua Negra Deep Experiment Site) and its overburden could be as large as \sim 1.7 km of rock, or 4500 mwe, providing an excellent low background environment to study physics of rare events like the ones induced by neutrinos and/or…

Calculated WIMP signals at the ANDES laboratory: comparison with northern and southern located dark matter detectors
Weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) are possible components of the Universe's dark matter (DM). The detection of WIMPs is signaled by the recoil of the atomic nuclei which form a detector.
Probing neutrino decay scenarios by using the Earth matter effects on supernova neutrinos
The observation of Earth matter effects in the spectrum of neutrinos coming from a next galactic core-collapse supernova (CCSN) could, in principle, reveal if neutrino mass ordering is normal or

Deep Underground Laboratories (DUL) provide a unique environment to address some key questions in basic and applied science. A penetrating radiation due to cosmic rays is present at ground level at a
Astroparticles in Latin America: current status and outlook
The successful installation and operation of the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina has been a milestone in Astroparticle research in Latin America, generating new regional research opportunities
Probing secret interactions of eV-scale sterile neutrinos with the diffuse supernova neutrino background
Sterile neutrinos with mass in the eV-scale and large mixings of order θ0≃ 0.1 could explain some anomalies found in short-baseline neutrino oscillation data. Here, we revisit a neutrino portal
Matter effects in neutrino visible decay at future long-baseline experiments
Neutrino visible decay in the presence of matter is re-evaluated. We study these effects in two future long-baseline experiments where matter effects are relevant: DUNE (1300 km) and a hypothetical
Quasi-Classical Gravity Effect on Neutrino Oscillations in a Gravitational Field of a Heavy Astrophysical Object
In the framework of quantum field theory, a graviton interacts locally with a quantum state having definite mass, that is, the gravitational mass eigenstate, while a weak boson interacts with a state
Dips in the diffuse supernova neutrino background
Scalar (fermion) dark matter with mass in the MeV range coupled to ordinary neutrinos and another fermion (scalar) is motivated by scenarios that establish a link between radiatively generated
