Chasing the ultimate neutrinos
Kumiko Kotera, researcher at the Institut Astrophysique de Paris and recipient in 2016 of the CNRS bronze medal, work in high- (or even very high-) energy astrophysics. She is GRAND’s co-spokesperson and talks here about her research chasing neutrinos.
2-minutes description about GRAND
The Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND) aims at detecting ultra-high-energy extraterrestrial neutrinos via the extensive air showers induced by the decay of tau leptons created in the interaction of neutrinos under the Earth’s surface. In this talk, Anne Zilles — post-doctoral fellow at the IAP — show preliminary designs and simulation results, plans for the ongoing, staged approach to construction, and the rich research program made possible by the proposed sensitivity and angular resolution.
