Description

The ANTARES neutrino telescope is located on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, 40 km off the French coast. The detector is installed at a depth of 2.5 km and consists of a three-dimensional array of about 900 photomultipliers tubes arranged on 12 detector lines. The ANTARES collaboration aims to detect high-energy neutrinos from extraterrestrial origin. Relativistic muons emerging from charged-current muon neutrino interactions in the detector surroundings produce a cone of Cerenkov light which allows us the reconstruction of the original neutrino direction. The collaboration has implemented different methods to search for neutrino point sources in the data collected since 2007. Results obtained with these methods as well as the sensitivity of the telescope will be presented.
