We propose that TeV-PeV neutrinos, recently detected by the IceCube, can be produced by neutrons interacting with the matter of the accretion disks around black holes in active galaxies. Neutrons are extracted from nuclei which are disintegrated in jets of active galaxies. The neutrino spectra, expected from the whole population of the active galaxies, are confronted with the observations. We prop ... More

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are among the most energetic events known in the Universe, which perhaps are the source of neutrino emission. With Borexino data taken from December 2007, three different searches for GRB emitted neutrinos were delivered. First, search for electron antineutrinos with energies from 1.8 MeV to 15 MeV correlated with GRBs was performed through inverse beta decay channel on pro ... More

Super-Kamiokande is the world-largest water Cherenkov detector, running for neutrino observations and proton decay search over 20 years. Because of its high statistics due to the large fiducial volume of 22.5 kt, lower cosmic-ray background environment in a mine at 1000m underground, and well-calibrated detector itself, Super-K has been making the world-leading results of the Boron-8 solar neutrin ...

When a cosmic particle hits matter it produces radio emission via the Askaryan effect. This allows to use Earth's moon as detector for cosmic particles by searching for these ns-pulses with radio telescopes. This technique potentially increases the available collective area by several orders of magnitude compared to current experiments. The LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) is the largest radio telescop ...

Radio detectors for UHE neutrinos, such as ARA, ARIANNA, and ANITA, look for the broadband, impulsive radio emission produced by a neutrino-induced particle shower in a dense dielectric. An interferometric phased array trigger, in which signals from multiple antennas are added coherently before triggering to increase the signal-to-noise ratio for triggering, can be implemented to lower the energy ...

The origins of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos measured by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory remain a mystery despite extensive searches for multimessenger correlations. In particular, no point sources have been identified so far. However a likely source for diffuse neutrino emission are cosmic-ray interactions in the galactic plane. Due to the excellent pointing of their track-like signature, ... More

Since the end of the eighties and in response to a reported increase in the total neutrino flux in the Homestake experiment in coincidence with solar flares, solar neutrino detectors have searched for solar flare signals. Hadronic acceleration in the magnetic structures of such flares leads to meson production in the solar atmosphere. These mesons subsequently decay, resulting in gamma-rays and ne ... More

Fast Radio Bursts are one of the most intriguing transient radio sources. Discovered a decade ago, they are characterised by an intense radio-pulse (few Jy) lasting few milliseconds and mainly detected in the GHz energy band. Up to now, many unknowns remain concerning the nature of the transient progenitor, the nature of the radio emission and their distribution in the Universe. Recently, the firs ... More

A search for cosmic neutrino sources using the data collected with the ANTARES detector between early 2007 and the end of 2015 is presented. For the first time, all neutrino interactions are considered in a search for point-like sources, instead of only muon neutrino charged current interactions. This is achieved by using a novel reconstruction algorithm for shower-like events in addition to the s ... More

High-energy neutrinos could be produced in the interaction of charged cosmic rays with matter or radiation surrounding astrophysical sources. Transient phenomena, such as gamma-ray bursts, core-collapse supernovae or active galactic nuclei are promising candidates to emit high-energy neutrinos. To search for coincidences between a transient event and a neutrino emission, a follow-up program of neu ... More

The spectrum of cosmic rays includes the most energetic particles ever observed. The mechanism of their acceleration and their sources are, however, still mostly unknown. Observing astrophysical neutrinos can help solve this problem. Because neutrinos are produced in hadronic interactions and are neither absorbed nor deflected, they will point directly back to their source. This contribution will ... More

Neutrino stacking analysis constrain the paradigm that Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) are the sources of the Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs). However, most of the literature has focused on a pure proton composition of UHECRs, which has been disfavored by recent composition measurements of the Pierre Auger Observatory. The injection of nuclei in the sources is here considered by simulating the nucl ... More
