  1. 1. A Search for Dark Matter Lines with H.E.S.S. II

    Författare :Knut Dundas Morå; Jan Conrad; Christian Farnier; Christian Walck; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark Matter; Cherenkov Telescopes; Indirect Detection; Physics; fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Most of the matter in the universe, ~80% is thought to be dark matter- particles that have small or no interactions with standard model particles. Dark matter is an integral part of the current understanding of cosmology, and leaves signs in the movements of stars and galaxies, as well as the Cosmic Microwave Background. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Gamma-Ray Emission from Galaxy Clusters : DARK MATTER AND COSMIC-RAYS

    Författare :Anders Pinzke; Lars Bergström; Olaf Reimer; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Galaxy clusters; gamma-rays; cosmic-rays; dark matter; High energy astrophysics; Högenergiastrofysik; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : The quest for the first detection of a galaxy cluster in the high energy gamma-ray regime is ongoing, and even though clusters are observed in several other wave-bands, there is still no firm detection in gamma-rays. To complement the observational efforts we estimate the gamma-ray contributions from both annihilating dark matter and cosmic-ray (CR) proton as well as CR electron induced emission. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A search for ultra-high energy neutrinos with AMANDA-II

    Författare :Christin Wiedemann; Stephan Hundertmark; Lee Thompson; AlbaNova University Center (together with KTH) Faculty of Science Stockholm University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Neutrinos; Cosmic rays; Ultra-high energy; AMANDA; IceCube; Physics; Fysik; Physics; fysik;

    Sammanfattning : High-energy neutrinos are capable of carrying information over vast distances, and neutrino telescopes such as AMANDA-II provide the means to probe deep inside the violent and energetic interior of the universe. AMANDA-II is located in the glacial ice at South Pole in Antarctica and is optimised to detect Cherenkov emission from neutrino-induced muon tracks with energies above 100 GeV. LÄS MER
