Astroparticle Physics at DESY

  • IceCube

  • CTA

  • Recommendations


Icecube optical

IceCube optical

  • Construction finished in December 2010

    86 strings deployed (2005 to 2010)

    inauguration April 28th, 2011

  • Excellent performance:

    very low failure rate of OMs

    98% up-time

  • During installation time:

    accumulated exposure ~ 2 cubic kilometer year


Icecube further installations

IceCube – further installations

  • Continuation of R&D efforts still possible

  • In ice radio antenna stations for ARA GZK neutrinos

  • NaJ-detector in ice  evaluation for direct dark matter search

  • acoustic components  acoustic ice properties

CTA

  • Germany has a leading role in CTA

  • DESY is a strong partner in CTA and gives important support to German CTA groups; DESY has high visibility in CTA

  • DESY contribution:

    mid size telescope design and prototype

    array operation centre

    electronics

    analysis and computing

  • Pre-prototype has been set-up

  • Prototype expected until end 2011


General

general

  • Application for a „Helmholtz Alliance on Astroparticle Physics“

    proposal submitted December 2010

    evaluation in April 2011 was positive

    has to be approved be the Helmholtz Senat

  • Berlin-Brandenburg-Cluster is etablished (Universität Potsdam, Humboldt-Universität Berlin, DESY-Zeuthen)

    Markus Ackermann + 1 Postdocs + 1 Doktorand


Recommendations

Recommendations

  • DESY should take a leading role in the coming Helmholtz Alliance

  • IceCube:

    DESY should extensively take part in the physics harvest

  • CTA

    DESY should keep its strong hardware involvement

    DESY should strengthen its simulation and physics involvement
