The AMANDA-II data collected during the period 2000–2003 have been analysed in a search for a diffuse flux of high-energy extra-terrestrial muon neutrinos from the sum of all sources in the Universe. With no excess events seen, an upper limit of Eν × dNν/dEν< 7.4×10−8 GeV cm−2 s−1 sr−1was obtained. The sensitivity of the diffuse analysis of IceCube 9 string for 137 days of data is calculated to be Eν × dNν/dEν< 1.3× 10−7 GeV cm−2 s−1 sr−1. No excess events are observed, which confirms the… Expand
