PREVIEW

WATCH ALL SLIDES

No observational evidence (from baryons or high energy photons)

Cores of AGNs (rather than in the jets) by photo-meson interactions or via p−p collisions in a collapsing galactic nucleus or in a cacooned black hole.

The most optimistic predictions of the AGN core model have already been ruled out by AMANDA

Detection Technique

Detection Technique

neutrino

muon or tau

Cerenkov

light cone

detector

interaction

The muon radiates blue light in its wake

Optical sensors capture (and map) the light

E= 10 TeV

E= 10 TeV

E= 6 PeV

Measure energy by counting the number of fired PMT.

(This is a very simple but robust method)

 Double Bang

 Double Bang

E << 1PeV: Single cascade

(2 cascades coincide)

E ≈ 1PeV: Double bang

E >> 1 PeV: partially contained

(reconstruct incoming tau track and cascade from decay)

Regeneration makes Earth quasi

transparent for high energie ;
