µ-events in IceCube

Eµ=6 PeV

Eµ=10 TeV

AMANDA-II

1 km

Measure energy by counting the number of fired PMT.

(This is a very simple but robust method)

Cascade event

ne + N --> e- + X

The length of the actual cascade, ≈ 10 m, is small compared to the spacing of sensors

1 PeV ≈ 500 m diameter

Fully active calorimeter with linear energy resolution

Sensitivity for diffused flux about the same as for muons

E = 375 TeV

“Double Bang”

t + N --> t- + X

t + X

  • E << 1 PeV: Single cascade

  • (2 cascades coincide)

  • E ≈ 1 PeV: Double bang

  • E >> 1 PeV: Second cascade + tau track
