Neutrinos

The CPPM Neutrinos Astroparticle team is heavily involved in the ANTARES and KM3NeT neutrino telescopes deployed in the abyss of the Mediterranean Sea, used for cosmic neutrino research and fundamental neutrino properties studies.

As part of its research of high-energy neutrinos coming from transient astrophysical sources, the team is also participating in the development of the COLIBRI robotic telescope, associated with the future SVOM space detector.

The team also searches for new physics with the SuperNEMO experiment. This is realized through the study of a very rare radioactive decay, the double desintegration beta without neutrino (ββ)0ν (\beta \beta)_{0 \nu} .

The ANTARES detector is the largest neutrino telescope in the Northern Hemisphere and the only one built in a marine environment. In operation since 2006, it is installed by 2500 m depth in the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Toulon (France).

The main goal of ANTARES is the search for cosmic neutrinos coming from the violent phenomena of the Universe. The ANTARES underwater infrastructure also constitutes a real multidisciplinary platform for experimentation enabling numerous studies in the fields of Marine, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

At CPPM, the team plays a leading role in the operation of this detector and data analysis. In particular, it is heavily involved in:

  • searches for cosmic neutrinos from transient or variable sources ;
  • multi-messenger analyses of astrophysical sources ;
  • the indirect search for Dark Matter towards the Sun and the galactic centre ;
  • measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters and constraints on sterile neutrino models.

The CPPM team is also responsible for the operation and maintenance of the detector and its control room, as the laboratory hosting the experiment. It is also heavily involved in the calibration and the Collaboration governance.

The KM3NeT detector is a second generation neutrino telescope installed in the abyss of the Mediterranean Sea, designed based on the return of experience of the ANTARES detector.

A first version of detector, called ARCA, installed off Sicily, is dedicated to the search for high energy neutrinos from cataclysms of the Universe such as supernovæ or the formation and evolution of black holes. A second detector, called ORCA, is under construction off Toulon. It will allow a determination of the mass hierarchy of neutrinos, by precisely studying the flux of atmospheric neutrinos crossing the Earth. The MEUST-NUMerEnv underwater infrastructure of the ORCA detector also constitutes a multidisciplinary experimental platform hosting numerous studies in the fields of Marine, Earth and Environmental Sciences within the framework of the EMSO seabed observatory.

This project is financed with the support of the European Union with the European Regional Development Fund.

At CPPM, the team plays a leading role in the design, construction and operation of the KM3NeT-ORCA detector and KM3NeT data analyses. In particular, it is heavily involved in:

  • the determination of the mass hierarchy of neutrinos ;
  • multi-messenger analyses of astrophysical sources ;
  • searches for cosmic neutrinos from transient or variable sources ;
  • the indirect search for Dark Matter.

The CPPM team is also responsible for the construction and operation of the KM3NeT-ORCA detector, as well as the MEUST-NUMerEnv underwater infrastructure, and of the control room, as host laboratory of the French KM3NeT site. It is also heavily involved in the governance of the KM3NeT Collaboration.

The space mission SVOM (Space based multi-band astronomical Variable Objects Monitor) is a Sino-French project dedicated to the detection and study of gamma-ray bursts whose launch is planned for the end of 2021. The duration of operation is planned for 3 years with a 2-year extension.

Fortuitously discovered in the 1970s, gamma-ray bursts are intense flashes of high-energy photons whose origin seems to be linked to the explosion of hyper massive stars or the fusion of two neutron stars. These bursts are the brightest phenomena ever observed since the Big Bang. These sources could also be at the origin of cosmic rays of very high energy. As a result, they are also the most favourable candidates as counterparts for high energy neutrinos. This synergy with neutrinos is one of the strong themes of the CPPM’s ANTARES/KM3NeT team. Research conducted with SVOM will provide additional information to the information collected by ANTARES and KM3NeT.

The CPPM team is involved in the construction and operation of the COLIBRI robotic telescope that will be installed in San Pedro Martir, Mexico and dedicated to optical and infrared monitoring of SVOM satellite alerts. The CPPM is mainly involved in the telescope software, in particular on the development of the instrument's instrumental centre and all the analysis tools of visible and near infrared images.

The SuperNEMO detector is a modular tracko-calorimetric detector, allowing to study the kinematics of the double bêta disintegration (simultaneous emission of two electrons coming from the same nucleus and whose sum energy is fixed). For that, the SuperNEMO detector, is constituted by a central module, source ββ\beta \beta surrounded by two tracking modules where the trajectory of the two electrons is reconstructed and finally two modules of plastic scintillators for the calculation of the energy of the electrons.

The SuperNEMO project is part of experiments to discover the nature of neutrino and thus determine whether or not it is identical to its antiparticle. This research, which explores a new physics beyond the Standard Model, is realized through the study of a very rare radioactive decay, the double disintegration bêta without Neutrino (ββ)0ν (\beta \beta)_{0 \nu} . Beyond the study of the Dirac or Majorana nature of neutrino, the (ββ)0ν (\beta \beta)_{0 \nu} allows us to characterize the mass hierarchy of neutrinos and explore several fundamental aspects related to the non conservation of lepton numbers.

Photons

CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array) is a global initiative to build the world’s largest and most sensitive high-energy gamma-ray observatory. It will be constituted by more than 100 Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs) of three different types (Large, Medium and Small Sized Telescopes) located both in the northern and southern hemispheres. CTA will detect high-energy radiation with unprecedented accuracy and approximately 10 times better sensitivity than current IACT instruments such as HESS.

This image illustrates what the array in the southern hemisphere might look like. CTA will use more than 100 telescopes located in both the northern and southern hemispheres giving it a collection area that exceeds one million square metres. CTA’s three classes of telescope will provide broad energy coverage from billions to trillions the energy of visible light (30 GeV to 300 TeV). (Credit: G/ Pérez, IAC, SMM)

CTA will transform our understanding of the high-energy Universe by addressing three major study themes: understanding the origin and role of relativistic cosmic particles, probing extreme environments such as black holes and exploring the frontiers of physics searching for dark matter and deviations from Einstein’s theory of special relativity.

The CPPM participates both to CTA and to HESS and has responsabilities in the following domains:

  • Acquisition system for the Large and Medium Sized Telescopes (NectarCAM and LSTCAM)
  • Monte Carlo Simulation and verification
  • Evaluation of CTA potentiality in detecting galactic cosmic ray sources
  • Galactic target of opportunity program in HESS
