A Search for Ultra-High Energy Neutrinos and Cosmic-Rays by Matthew Joseph Mottram PDF

By Matthew Joseph Mottram

The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the knowledge from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive brief Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne scan that searches for radio indications originating from ultra-high strength neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the quest for ultrahigh power neutrinos of astrophysical starting place is likely one of the awesome experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA scan was once designed to be the main delicate software to ultra-high strength neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave heritage. The method and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are offered within the thesis.
