  1. 1. Fast Simulations of Radio Neutrino Detectors : Using Generative Adversarial Networks and Artificial Neural Networks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Högenergifysik

    Author : Anton Holmberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Askaryan emission; Radio detection of neutrinos; in-ice propagation; neutrino; Generative adversarial networks; GAN; WGAN; Neural networks; NN; surrogate model; IceCube; deep learning; generative model;

    Abstract : Neutrino astronomy is expanding into the ultra-high energy (>1017eV) frontier with the use of in-ice detection of Askaryan radio emission from neutrino-induced particle showers. There are already pilot arrays for validating the technology and the next few years will see the planning and construction of IceCube-Gen2, an upgrade to the current neutrino telescope IceCube.

  2. 2. Estimating progenitor mass and distance to Galactic Core-Collapse Supernova using neutrino observatory IceCube

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Manne Segerlund; [2021]
    Keywords : Supernova neutrinos; Supernova detection; Multi-messenger astronomy;

    Abstract : Galactic core-collapse supernovae is a once-in-a-lifetime event which could carry with it information about new physics. In this work a method for estimating the progenitor mass and distance using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory is presented. The mass is expressed through an intermediate parameter called compactness.

  3. 3. Ghosts of Our Past: Neutrino Direction Reconstruction Using Deep Neural Networks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Högenergifysik

    Author : Sigfrid Stjärnholm; [2021]
    Keywords : neutrino; neural network; ICECUBE; AI; convolutional neural network; CNN; askaryan emission; charged current; neutral current; CC; NC; Keras; TensoFlow; neutrino; neuralt nätverk; ICECUBE; AI; askaryan emission; Keras; TensorFlow;

    Abstract : Neutrinos are the perfect cosmic messengers when it comes to investigating the most violent and mysterious astronomical and cosmological events in the Universe. The interaction probability of neutrinos is small, and the flux of high-energy neutrinos decreases quickly with increasing energy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sterile Neutrinos and Non-Standard Interactions in Neutrino Telescopes

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Martin Sjöborg; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The failure of the Standard Model of particle physics to predict neutrino masses invites us to amend it. We have no reason to believe that the interactions currently described by the gauge group are the whole picture, nor should we expect that the number of fermions hitherto observed is correct.

  5. 5. A literature review of FASERν - An emulsion detector for collider neutrinos

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Lisa Andersson Loman; [2021]
    Keywords : physics; neutrinos; FASER; Standard Model; Beyond Standard Model; BSM; particles; elementary particles; neutrino cross sections; LHC; FASER nu; particle physics; physics experiment; CERN; long lived particles; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In 2021, the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment (FASER) will start searching for light and weakly coupled particles 480m from the proton-proton collision point of ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The FASER main detector will have a sub-detector, FASERν, sensitive to high-energy collider neutrinos of all flavours. READ MORE
