Radio detection of neutrinos from behind a mountain

  journal={arXiv: Astrophysics},
We explore the sensitivity of a neutrino detector employing strongly directional high gain radio antennae to detect the conversion of neutrinos above $10^{16}$ eV in a mountain or the earth crust. The directionality of the antennae will allow both, the low threshold and the suppression of background. This technology would have the advantage that it does not require a suitable atmosphere as optical detectors do and could therefore be deployed at any promising place on the planet. In particular…

Radio Experiments for Air Shower Detection
Already in the 1950s and 1960s, several experiments discovered that cosmic ray air showers emit radio pulses in the MHz regime [39], that the emission is linked to the Earth’s magnetic field, and
Radio Detection of High Energy Neutrinos
Ultra-high energy (UHE) neutrino astrophysics sits at the crossroads of particle physics, astronomy, and astrophysics. Through neutrino astrophysics, we can uniquely explore the structure and

Study of a detector array for Upward Tau Air-Showers
The cosmic ray spectrum extends to energies above 10^20 eV. In direct production or acceleration models, as well as by photo-pion interaction high energy cosmic ray flux must contain neutrinos and
