Follow-up of the IceCube neutrino source candidate TXS 0506-056

  The ANTARES and HESS collaborations have followed-up the IceCube observation of a first possible high-energy neutrino source candidate, and the APC groups have had a strong role in these searches. The IceCube Collaboration has reported, in a press conference at the US National Science Foundation on July 12th 2018, a correlation between high-energy neutrinos and the blazar known as […]

First detection unit of the KM3NeT/ORCA neutrino detector

Last week, an extensive sea operation took place to deploy several elements of the KM3NeT/ORCA detector at the KM3NeT-Fr site, about 40 km offshore from Toulon. Amongst them, the first detection unit of ORCA comprising 18 optical modules, spaced at 9 m along a 200 m high vertical neutrino detection line. The deployment and connection of the detection unit was performed with the […]
