IceCube generation 2 is a task to develop a 10 cubic kilometer neutrino telescope at the South Pole. A one cubic kilometer detector, called IceCube was finished in2010 Neutrino telescopes are another type of telescope to go together with telescopes for noticeable light, x-rays, infrared, ultraviolet, microwave, radio, gamma ray and gravity waves.
They can look deep into area for the sources of cosmic rays and to study supernovae and they can expose the structure inside the Earth.
There are numerous undersea neutrino detectors, under-ice and underground detectors.
Undersea neutrino telescopes:
Baikal Deep Underwater Neutrino Telescope (1993 on)
ANTARES (2006 on)
KM3NeT (future telescope; under building given that 2013)
NESTOR Job (under advancement given that 1998)
Under-ice neutrino telescopes:
AMANDA (1996–2009, superseded by IceCube)
IceCube (2004 onwards)
DeepCore and PINGU, an existing extension and a proposed extension of IceCube
Underground neutrino observatories:
Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS), Italy, website of Borexino, CUORE, and other experiments.
Soudan Mine, house of Soudan 2, MINOS, and CDMS
Kamioka Observatory, Japan
Underground Neutrino Observatory, Mont Blanc, France/Italy
The next generation deep sea neutrino telescope KM3NeT will have an overall instrumented volume of about 5 cubic kilometers, and the IceCube Gen2 detector will be 10 cubic kilometers. These 2 will bring even more level of sensitivity to neutrino detection. They will be 3 to 10 times more capable than the very best existing detectors. The KM3NeT detector will be integrated in 3 setup websites in the Mediterranean. Execution of the very first stage of the telescope began in 2013.
Several detectors are required to triangulate on neutrino sources in area and for analysis of the deep interior of the earth.
Neutrino tomography of Earth
Neutrino detectors have actually made accurate measurements of the mass and density of the Earth. The Earth connects with neutrinos. The distinctions in the circulation of neutrinos that go through the Earth can be utilized to evaluate density and develop a 3D design of the within core and mantle. Neutrino detectors with enhanced level of sensitivity and several years of information collection will allow greatly enhanced modeling.
