High-energy Astrophysical Neutrinos in IceCube.

Speaker

Juan Antonio Aguilar Sanchez (Unknown)

Description

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a kilometer-scale neutrino telescope located at the South Pole underneath the Antarctic ice. In the last years IceCube has provided evidence of a diffuse flux component of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos at the level of 10-8 GeV cm-2 s-1 sr-1 per flavor. The origin of these neutrinos remains, however, unknown. Ongoing analyses are trying to solve this mystery by searching for spatial and timing correlations. I will discuss the latest results of the IceCube experiment and the possible interpretations about the origin of this high energy component. I will conclude with prospects of future upgrades of the IceCube experiment.
