IceCube is a km-scale neutrino observatory under construction at the South Pole with sensors both in the deep ice (InIce) and on the surface (IceTop). The sensors, called Digital Optical Modules (DOMs), detect, digitize and timestamp the signals from optical Cherenkov-radiation photons. The DOM Main Board (MB) data acquisition subsystem is connected to the central DAQ in the IceCube Laboratory (ICL) by a single twisted copper wire-pair and transmits packetized data on demand. Time calibration… Expand
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory: instrumentation and online systems
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a cubic-kilometer-scale high-energy neutrino detector built into the ice at the South Pole. Construction of IceCube, the largest neutrino detector built to date,Expand
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 atExpand
Design and performance of the first IceAct demonstrator at the South Pole
In this paper we describe the first results of a compact imaging air-Cherenkov telescope, IceAct, operating in coincidence with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory (IceCube) at the geographic SouthExpand
Measurement of South Pole ice transparency with the IceCube LED calibration system
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, approximately 1 km(3) in size, is now complete with 86 strings deployed in the Antarctic ice. IceCube detects the Cherenkov radiation emitted by charged particlesExpand
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 neutrinoExpand
Monitoring and Multi-Messenger Astronomy with IceCube
IceCube currently is the largest neutrino observatory with an instrumented detection volume of 1 km3 buried in the ice-sheet close to the antarctic South Pole station. With a 4 π field of view and anExpand
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. TheseExpand
Study of South Pole ice transparency with IceCube flashers
The IceCube observatory, 1 km 3 in size, is now complete with 86 strings deployed in the antarctic ice. IceCube detects the Cherenkov radiation emitted by charged particles passing through or createdExpand
All-Particle Cosmic Ray Energy Spectrum Measured with 26 Icetop Stations
We report on a measurement of the cosmic ray energy spectrum with the IceTop air shower array, the surface component of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole. The data used in thisExpand
Investigation of all-flavour neutrino fluxes with the IceCube detector using the cascade signature
This thesis presents a search for the diffuse astrophysical neutrino flux in 335 days of IceCube data. IceCube is a 1 km3 neutrino detector located at the South Pole, consisting of 86 strings, eachExpand
