The Antares neutrino telescope, operating at 2.5 km depth in the Mediterranean Sea, 40 km off the Toulon shore, represents the world’s largest operational underwater neutrino telescope, optimized for the detection of Cerenkov light produced by neutrino-induced muons. The main goal of Antares is the search of high energy neutrinos from astrophysical point or transient sources. Antares is taking data in its full 12 lines configuration since May 2008: in this paper we collect the 16 contributions… 

INVESTIGATION OF THE PRECURSOR PHASE OF GAMMA-RAY BURSTS

High-energy neutrinos are promising cosmic messengers which can advance our understanding of the physics involved in the most extreme astrophysical phenomena and environments in the Universe. The

A Deep Sea Telescope for High Energy Neutrinos

The ANTARES Collaboration proposes to construct a large area water Cherenkov detector in the deep Mediterranean Sea, optimised for the detection of muons from high-energy astrophysical neutrinos.

Underwater acoustic detection of UHE neutrinos with the ANTARES experiment

The ANTARES Neutrino Telescope is a water Cherenkov detector composed of an array of approximately 900 photomultiplier tubes in 12 vertical strings, spread over an area of about 0.1 km 2 with an

Searching for high-energy neutrinos in coincidence with gravitational waves with the ANTARES and VIRGO/LIGO detectors

Cataclysmic cosmic events can be plausible sources of both gravitational waves (GW) and high-energy neutrinos (HEN). Both GW and HEN are alternative cosmic messengers that may escape very dense media

Reconstruction of Atmospheric Neutrinos in Antares

In May 2008, the Antares neutrino telescope was completed at 2.5 km depth in the Mediterranean Sea; data taking has been going on since. A prerequisite for neutrino astronomy is an accurate

First results on the search for dark matter in the Sun with the ANTARES neutrino telescope

The ANTARES collaboration is currently operating the largest neutrino detector in the North- ern Hemisphere. One of the goals of ANTARES is the search for dark matter in the universe. In this paper,

Gamma Ray Astronomy with Underground Detectors

Underground detectors measure the directions of up-coming muons of neutrino origin. They can also observe down-going muons made by gamma rays in the Earth's atmosphere. Although gamma ray showers are

THE TEMPORAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TEV GAMMA-RADIATION FROM MKN 501 IN 1997. I. DATA FROM THE STEREOSCOPIC IMAGING ATMOSPHERIC CHERENKOV TELESCOPE SY STEM OF HEGRA

During 1997, the BL Lac Object Mkn 501 was the brightest known object in the TeV γ-ray sky. The emission was characterized by dramatic variations in intensity with a mean flux exceeding by a factor

Concepts and performance of the ANTARES data acquisition system

The data acquisition system of the ANTARES neutrino telescope is based on the unique "all-data-to-shore" concept. In this, all signals from the photo-multiplier tubes are digitised, and all dig- ital
