Neutrino Array Radio Calibration

Neutrino Array Radio Calibration

The Neutrino Array Radio Calibration (NARC) experiment is the successor to the Radio Ice Cherenkov Experiment (RICE) which will serve as a testbed for future development of an eventual large-scale neutrino radio-detection array. NARC involves detecting ultra high energy electron neutrinos through their interactions with ice molecules in the Antarctic icecap, based on the principle of radio coherence. Experimentally, the goal is to detect and measure long-wavelength (radiofrequency) pulses resulting from this interaction.
