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

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 hunt for ultrahigh power neutrinos of astrophysical beginning is likely one of the notable experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA test was once designed to be the main delicate software to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave history. The technique and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are awarded within the thesis.
