KM3NeT/ORCA (Oscillation Research with Cosmics in the Abyss) is a deep sea neutrino telescope currently under construction at a depth of 2500m in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Toulon. ORCA is optimised for the detection of low energy (3-100 GeV) atmospheric neutrinos and will allow precision studies of neutrino properties. The first ORCA detection strings will be deployed late 2018 and early 2019.
During this intern-ship, at the Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille, the student will actively participate in the data taking of the ORCA detector and analyse those data. The goal of the intern-ship is to extract a clean signal of upgoing atmospheric neutrinos, based on the data sample of the first few months.
