Searching for High-Energy Neutrinos from Core-Collapse Supernovae with IceCube

The IceCube Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


IceCube is a cubic kilometer neutrino detector array in the Antarctic ice that was designed to search for astrophysical, high-energy neutrinos. It has detected a diffuse flux of astrophysical neutrinos that appears to be of extragalactic origin. A possible contribution to this diffuse flux could stem from core-collapse supernovae. The high-energy neutrinos could either come from the interaction of the ejecta with a dense circumstellar medium or a jet, emanating from the star’s core, that stalls in the star’s envelope. Here, we will present results of a stacking analysis to search for this high-energy neutrino emission from core-collapse supernovae using 7 years of υμ track events from IceCube.
