IceCube @ Georgia Tech


IceCube is a very-high-energy neutrino telescope operating at the South Pole. IceCube monitors all the sky, all the time in search for neutrinos of astrophysical origin. In 2013, IceCube discovered a diffuse flux of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos and in 2017, IceCube identified a blazar (TXS 0506+056 or “Texas”) as a likely source of neutrinos.

The Taboada group uses IceCube data to search for neutrino sources that can explain the origin of the astrophysical neutrino diffuse flux.
