"IceCube: Astrophysical neutrino measurements from the South Pole"

Mike DuVernois , Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center
[Host: PQ Hung]
The IceCube detector construction completed at the end of 2010, and the full detector consisting of 5160 modules deployed in strings between 1.5 and 2.5km deep in the ice has been operating since then. I will discuss the detector, working at the South Pole, and the latest science results from IceCube which include the first detections of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. Other recent work has looked at gamma-ray burst neutrinos (and placed an interesting limit), the cosmic-ray anisotropy, and indirect searches for Dark Matter.
