Calibrating the photon detection efficiency in IceCube

The IceCube neutrino observatory is composed of more than five thousand light sensors, Digital Optical Modules (DOMs), installed on the surface and at depths between 1450 and 2450 m in clear ice at

Design and performance of the first IceAct demonstrator at the South Pole

In this paper we describe the first results of IceAct, a compact imaging air-Cherenkov telescope operating in coincidence with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory (IceCube) at the geographic South Pole.

An FPGA implementation of neutrino track detection for the IceCube telescope

The IceCube telescope is built within the ice at the geographical South Pole in the middle of the Antarctica continent. The purpose of the telescope is to detect muon neutrinos, the muon neutrino

The prototype design of integrated base for PMT with pulse digitalization and readout electronics

The mechanical and hardware design, challenges and software design, the ENOB (effective number of bits) of ADC and the TCP data throughput of the Gigabit Ethernet will also be discussed.

Identifying cosmic ray induced cascade events with IceTop

IceCube is the largest neutrino detector in the world. It consists of an array of photomultiplier tubes installed throughout a cubic kilometre of ice below the surface at the South Pole. These

Study of South Pole ice transparency with IceCube flashers

A new method of fitting the ice model to a data set of in-situ light source events collected with IceCube is presented and a comparison of IceCube data with simulation based on the new model is shown.

The SST fully-synchronous multi-GHz analog waveform recorder with Nyquist-rate bandwidth and flexible trigger capabilities

The design and performance of a fully-synchronous multi-GHz analog transient waveform recorder I.C. (“SST”) with fast and flexible trigger capabilities is presented. The SST's objective is to provide

Multi-GHz Synchronous Waveform Acquisition With Real-Time Pattern-Matching Trigger Generation

A transient waveform capture and digitization circuit with continuous synchronous 2-GHz sampling capability and real-time programmable windowed trigger generation has been fabricated and tested.

A Cascade Analysis for the IceCube Neutrino Telescope

IceCube is the largest operating neutrino observatory. An array of photomultiplier tubes deployed throughout a cubic kilometre of the Antarctic ice at the South Pole detect the Cherenkov radiation
