GRAND is designed to detect ultra-high-energy cosmic particles – specially neutrinos, cosmic rays and gamma rays using radio antennas. With ∼ 20 mountainous sites around the world it will cover a total area of 200,000 km 2 . The planned sensitivity of 10 − 10 GeV cm − 2 s − 1 sr − 1 above 5 × 10 17 eV will likely ensure the detection of cosmogenic neutrinos predicted by most common scenarios enabling neutrino astronomy. Furthermore, PeV– EeV neutrinos can test particle interactions at energies…

Probing Heavy Sterile Neutrinos at Ultrahigh Energy Neutrino Telescopes via the Dipole Portal

The question of how heavy a sterile neutrino can be probed in experiments leads us to investigate the Primakoff production of heavy sterile neutrinos up to PeV masses from ultrahigh-energy neutrinos

Earth-skimming Ultra-high Energy Tau Neutrinos simulated with MonteCarlo method and CONEX code

Abstract This paper aims to study the feasibility of building an Earth-skimming cosmic tau neutrinos detector, with the aim of eventually identifying the ideal dimensions of a natural site

Probing new physics at future tau neutrino telescopes

We systematically investigate new physics scenarios that can modify the interactions between neutrinos and matter at upcoming tau neutrino telescopes, which will test neutrino-proton collisions with

Determination of the Cosmic-Ray Chemical Composition: Open Issues and Prospects

Cosmic rays are relativistic particles that come to the Earth from outer space. Despite a great effort made in both experimental and theoretical research, their origin is still unknown. One of the

Extragalactic Magnetic Fields and the Arrival Direction of Ultra-high-energy Cosmic Rays

We studied the propagation of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays in extragalactic magnetic fields (EGMFs). We report on the effect of the EGMF on the large-scale anisotropy signal measured at Earth. We

The Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND): Science and design

The Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND) is a planned large-scale observatory of ultra-high-energy (UHE) cosmic particles, with energies exceeding 108 GeV. Its goal is to solve the

Determining the fraction of cosmic-ray protons at ultrahigh energies with cosmogenic neutrinos

Cosmogenic neutrinos are produced when ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) interact with cosmological photon fields. Limits on the diffuse flux of these neutrinos can be used to constrain the

Cosmogenic neutrinos through the GRAND lens unveil the nature of cosmic accelerators

The sources of cosmic rays with energies above 55 EeV are still mysterious. A guaranteed associated flux of ultra high energy neutrinos known as the cosmogenic neutrino flux will be measured by next

Fundamental Physics with High-Energy Astrophysical Neutrinos Today and in the Future

The astrophysical neutrinos discovered by IceCube have the highest detected neutrino energies --- from TeV to PeV --- and likely travel the longest distances --- up to a few Gpc, the size of the

High-energy Neutrino Emission from Short Gamma-Ray Bursts: Prospects for Coincident Detection with Gravitational Waves

We investigate current and future prospects for coincident detection of high-energy neutrinos and gravitational waves (GWs). Short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) are believed to originate from mergers of

Ultra-High Energy Photon and Neutrino Fluxes in Realistic Astrophysical Scenarios

UHE-photons and neutrinos are expected to be produced by cosmic rays of E> 5 · 10 19 eV propagating over intergalactic distances of several 100Mpc. Although not detected yet, measuring their fluxes

Identifying ultrahigh-energy cosmic-ray accelerators with future ultrahigh-energy neutrino detectors

The detection of ultrahigh-energy (UHE) neutrino sources would contribute significantly to solving the decades-old mystery of the origin of the highest-energy cosmic rays. We investigate the ability
