Title: "Pushing Toward Neutrino Multimessenger Astrophysics with A Radio Phased Array"

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
2:00pm-3:00pm

Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Abstract:  Multimessenger astrophysics with neutrinos requires a neutrino observatory with an extremely wide field of view, good spacial and spectral (energy) resolution, and a high event rate from astrophysical sources.  I will discuss a new design for a radio detector for astrophysical neutrinos that will achieve sub-degree pointing resolution and a high enough sensitivity and low enough energy threshold to see tens of events per year.  I will discuss the early prototype and the current status of an interferometric phased array for neutrino detection.
