Chasing cosmic particles with radio antennas in Greenland’s ice

-

“Detecting radio signals from high-energy neutrinos is a very promising way of significantly increasing the energy range we can access, and thus opening this new window to the cosmos even further,” says Christian Stegmann, DESY’s Director of Astroparticle Physics. “We are pursuing this path via initial test structures in Greenland, and will then go on to install radio antennas at the South Pole as part of IceCube-Gen2.”
