E10 : LEAK – Low Energy Astrophysics with KM3NeT
KM3NeT, the next generation neutrino telescope, is currently under deployment in the Mediterranean Sea. While its two different sites, ORCA and ARCA, have been designed for mass ordering determination and high-energy astronomy respectively, we propose to use them as low-energy telescopes to study the MeV-GeV neutrino transient sky. In particular, we want to focus on galactic corecollapse supernovae and solar flares. Three different work packages (WP) are proposed: the first one will be dedicated to performing noise studies in view of increasing the sensitivity of KM3NeT in this energy range, the second WP will explore the potential synergy between KM3NeT, DUNE and DarkSide in supernova neutrino searches, and the last WP will evaluate the ability of KM3NeT to be used as a solar flare telescope.
