- NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
- Recent results from the ANTARES and KM3NeT neutrino telescopes at the Mediterranean Sea
- Time: 2:30 pm
- Speaker: Rodri Gracia, ECAP/ University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany
- Abstract: ANTARES was the first undersea neutrino telescope and has been taking data steadily since its completion in 2008, until early 2022 when it was decommissioned. Currently, the KM3NeT collaboration is building two additional detectors which will target two different energy ranges. The ORCA detector geometry is optimised of the detection of neutrinos in the GeV range while the ARCA detector geometry has been optimised for the detection of neutrinos in the PeV range and above. In this talk I will review the scientific output of the ANTARES telescope, and I will report on the status of the KM3NeT detectors as well as on the latest results.
