Congratulations to Azadeh Keivani and the AMON team for a successful Swift Cycle 12 guest investigator proposal! The proposal, “Seeking the sources of the highest-energy IceCube neutrinos with Swift,” provides Keivani and her co-investigators access to Swift observing time. Each time IceCube detects a track-like High-Energy Starting Event, which has a high probability of having […]
The Pierre Auger Collaboration, gathered recently in the AugerPrime Symposium, in Malargüe, Argentina to celebrate 15 years of achievements, and the new International Agreement for the next 10 years. In the symposium, the Observatory’s upcoming upgrade was presented to representatives from all countries participating in the experiment, and scientists from other experiments, like IceCube. The […]
The AMON team would like to congratulate Takaaki Kajita from the Super-Kamiokande (SK) Collaboration and Arthur B. McDonald from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) Collaboration for winning the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2015. Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald lead the neutrino experiments, which demonstrated that neutrinos change their flavour and thus have mass. In 1962, Z. Maki, N. […]
Here is a short article in the September issue of Physics Today about AMON, entitled “Spotting coincidences in astronomical signals”. Find the article here or read it in the hardcopy of Physics Today this month.
AMON will present three papers at the 34th International Cosmic Ray Conference in the Hague, the Netherlands. The contributions are one talk and two posters. Below you can find information about our papers. If you will be attending the ICRC, come to our presentations to learn more about AMON’s status and the most recent news. “AMON: […]
As of May 27th, when AMON sent the first real-time alert to the Gamma-ray Coordinates Network (GCN), the AMON real-time phase has officially begun! Currently, every time the IceCube neutrino detector detects two or more neutrinos within a 100 second time window, with arrival directions separated by 3 degrees or less, an AMON alert is […]
AMON presents three talks at the IceCube Particle Astrophysics symposium (IPA 2015) next week. IPA 2015 organized by WIPAC will take place in Madison, Wisconsin, from Monday, May 4 through Wednesday, May 6. Our three talks will be on Tuesday in Multimessenger session from 16:00 to 17:30. Talk’s titles and links to them on indico are […]
AMON received the first signal in realtime from IceCube neutrino observatory on February 25th, the same day that IceCube sent the events out from the south pole to the North in realtime for the first time. These events are blinded (time scrambled) single muon neutrinos arriving at frequency of about 3 mHz (approximately one event […]
