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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 findes her!
