We investigate the initial progenitor mass dependence of the early-phase neutrino signal from supernovae taking neutrino oscillations into account. The early-phase analysis has advantages in that it is not affected by the time evolution of the density structure of the star due to shock propagation or whether the remnant is a neutron star or a black hole. The initial mass affects the evolution of the massive star and its presupernova structure, which is important for two reasons when considering… Expand
Neutrino oscillations in magnetically driven supernova explosions
We investigate neutrino oscillations from core-collapse supernovae that produce magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) explosions. By calculating numerically the flavor conversion of neutrinos in the highlyExpand
Identifying the neutrino mass hierarchy with supernova neutrinos
We review how a high-statistics observation of the neutrino signal from a future galactic core-collapse supernova (SN) may be used to discriminate between different neutrino mixing scenarios. WeExpand
Supernova Neutrino Detection
The neutrino burst from a core collapse supernova can provide information about the explosion mechanism and the mechanisms of proto neutron star cooling but also about the intrinsic properties of theExpand
Explosion mechanism, neutrino burst and gravitational wave in core-collapse supernovae
Core-collapse supernovae are among the most energetic explosions in the universe marking the catastrophic end of massive stars. In spite of rigorous studies for several decades, we still do notExpand
Supernova neutrino detection in LAr TPCs
The neutrino burst from a core collapse supernova can provide information about the explosion mechanism and the mechanisms of proto neutron star cooling but also about the intrinsic properties of theExpand
Oscillation and future detection of failed supernova neutrinos from a black-hole-forming collapse
Recently, stellar collapse involving black-hole formation from massive stars is suggested to emit enormous fluxes of neutrinos on par with ordinary core-collapse supernovae. We investigate theirExpand
Turbulent supernova shock waves and the sterile neutrino signature in megaton water detectors
The signatures of sterile neutrinos in the supernova neutrino signal in megaton water Cerenkov detectors are studied. Time dependent modulation of the neutrino signal emerging from the sharp changesExpand
The MSW Effect and Matter Effects in Neutrino Oscillations
The MSW (Mikheyev-Smirnov-Wolfenstein) effect is the adiabatic or partially adiabatic neutrino flavor conversion in media with varying density. The main notions related to the effect, its dynamicsExpand
Oscillation effects on supernova neutrino rates and spectra and detection of the shock breakout in a liquid argon TPC
A liquid argon TPC (ICARUS-like) has the ability to detect clean neutrino bursts from type-II supernova collapses. In this paper, we consider for the first time the four possible detectable channels,Expand
Neutrino oscillation and expected event rate of supernova neutrinos in the adiabatic explosion model
We study how the influence of the shock wave appears in neutrino oscillations and the neutrino spectrum by using the density profile of the adiabatic explosion model of a core-collapse supernova,Expand
