    Article
    Open Access
    KM3NeT will be a network of deep-sea neutrino telescopes in the Mediterranean Sea. The KM3NeT/ARCA detector, to be installed at the Capo Passero site (Italy), is optimised for the detection of high-energy neutrinos of ...
  • Size matters in quantitative radar monitoring of animal migration: estimating monitored volume from wingbeat frequency 

    Schmid, Baptiste; Zaugg, Serge Alain; Votier, Stephen C.; Chapman, Jason W.; Boos, Mathieu; Liechti, Felix (2019-01-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    Quantitative radar studies are an important component of studying the movements of birds. Whether a bird, at a certain distance from the radar, is detected or not depends on its size. The volume monitored by the radar is ...
  • Search for Multimessenger Sources of Gravitational Waves and High-energy Neutrinos with Advanced LIGO during Its First Observing Run, ANTARES, and IceCube 

    Albert, A.; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco; Ardid Ramírez, Miguel; Aubert, J.-J. (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2019-01-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    Astrophysical sources of gravitational waves, such as binary neutron star and black hole mergers or core-collapse supernovae, can drive relativistic outflows, giving rise to non-thermal high-energy emission. High-energy ...
  • The cosmic ray shadow of the Moon observed with the ANTARES neutrino telescope 

    Albert, A.; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco; Anton, Gisela; Ardid Ramírez, Miguel (springer-Verlag, 2018-12-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the main objectives of the ANTARES telescope is the search for point-like neutrino sources. Both the pointing accuracy and the angular resolution of the detector are important in this context and a reliable way to ...
  • Joint Constraints on Galactic Diffuse Neutrino Emission from the ANTARES and IceCube Neutrino Telescopes 

    Albert, A.; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco; Ardid Ramírez, Miguel; Aubert, J.-J. (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The existence of diffuse Galactic neutrino production is expected from cosmic-ray interactions with Galactic gas and radiation fields. Thus, neutrinos are a unique messenger offering the opportunity to test the products ...
  • Marine mammal acoustic detections in the Greenland and Barents Sea, 2013 – 2014 seasons 

    de Vreese, Steffen; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Weissenberger, Jürgen; Erbs, Florence; Kosecka, Monika; Solé Carbonell, Marta; André, Michel (Nature, 2018-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    While the Greenland and Barents Seas are known habitats for several cetacean and pinniped species there is a lack of long-term monitoring data in this rapidly changing environment. Moreover, little is known of the ambient ...
  • A critical period of susceptibility to sound in the sensory cells of cephalopod hatchlings 

    Solé Carbonell, Marta; Lenoir, Marc; Fortuño Alós, Jose-Manuel; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; André, Michel (2018-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The cephalopod statocyst and lateral line systems are sensory organs involved in orientation and balance. Lateral lines allow cephalopods to detect particle motion and are used for locating prey or predators in low light ...
  • The search for neutrinos from TXS 0506+056 with the ANTARES telescope 

    Albert, A.; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco; Anton, G.; Ardid Ramírez, Miguel; Aubert, J.-J.; Avgitas, T.; Baret, B.; Barrios Martí, J. (2018-08-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The results of three different searches for neutrino candidates, associated with the IceCube-170922A event or from the direction of TXS 0506+056, by the ANTARES neutrino telescope are presented. The first search refers to ...
  • Traditional versus hypertextual index in an on-line course on Oscillation and Wave Physics 

    Pejuan Alcobé, Arcadi; López, Víctor (2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    An online course on Oscillation and Wave Physics (https://ocw.upc.edu/webs/42254/Acustica_EN/) was implemented. As the first objective, this article describes its main features, especially the two types of indexes for ...
  • Long-term monitoring of the ANTARES optical module efficiencies using 40K decays in sea water 

    Albert, A.; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco (Springer, 2018-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cherenkov light induced by radioactive decay products is one of the major sources of background light for deep-sea neutrino telescopes such as ANTARES. These decays are at the same time a powerful calibration source. Using ...
  • Characterisation of the Hamamatsu photomultipliers for the KM3NeT Neutrino Telescope 

    Aiello, S; Ameli, F; André, Michel; Anghinolfi, Marco; Anton, G.; Ardid Ramírez, Miguel; Avgitas, T.; Bertin, V.; Bormuth, R.; Bouwhuis, M.C.; Puricelli, Stefano; Cherubini, Silvio; Coniglione, R.; Mannheim, Karl; Morganti, Michele; Pellegrino, Carlo; Piattelli, P.; Real, Del; Santangelo, A; Sharma, Aniruddh; Trovato, A.; Zaborov, D.; Zúñiga Román, Juan (2018-05-01)
