IceCube Experiment

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory, embedded down to 2.5 km deep under the South Pole, is the world's largest and most sensitive ‘telescope' for high energy neutrinos. With a cubic kilometer of instrumented ice it is the largest particle detector in the world.

IceCube is a part of the subatomic group at the Niels Bohr Institute. The group includes both experimentalists and theorists (from the Niels Bohr International Academy). Indicated are selected topics of responsibility or research interests within neutrino physics and IceCube.

ICRC poster prize to NBI student
23/07 2021

Tetiana Kozynets, a 1st year PhD student with the IceCube group, presented her Numerical Approach to Angular Distributions in Hadronic Cascades at the largest astroparticle physics conference, ICRC 2021, with over 1800 attendees. Her poster presentation, with over 600 competitors, was awarded one of three poster prizes. Applications of her work include the modeling of cosmic ray showers for atmospheric fluxes in neutrino physics, which benefit from a speed boost over Monte Carlo techniques through matrix cascade equations (MCEq) but extended to two-dimensions for the first time.

Kunne du tænke dig at være fysiker for en dag?

Forskerne på Niels Bohr Institutet inviterer til et en-dagskursus for gymnasieelever, der tager udgangspunkt i partikelfysik og astronomi.

Picture of the masterclass for high school students

Med fundet af Higgs partiklet i 2012 fandt man den sidste brik i standard modellen, men der er stadig meget der skal forklares – såsom f.eks. mørk stof og energi, og en dybere forståelse af naturkræfterne. 

Efter et kort udsættelse er Masterclass tilbage; detaljer om 2022 Masterclass annonceres snart!
