Description

IceCube, the world’s largest neutrino detector, is designed to measure the highest energy neutrinos produced in astrophysical events. Augmented with a low-energy array, called DeepCore, IceCube has the ability to perform precision measurements of the high flux of atmospheric neutrinos for energies ranging from approximately 10 GeV to a few 100 TeV. When combined with the measurements by Super-Kamiokande, it is possible to create a measurement of the atmospheric neutrino flux over 7 orders of magnitude. Discussed will be the development of the DeepCore analysis for performing a forward-folding measurement of the atmospheric flux in the crucial overlap region of the detectors between 10 GeV and 100 GeV.
