The Radar Echo Telescope: Detection of Ultra High Energy Neutrinos and Cosmic Rays Using the Radar Echo Technique

The Radar Echo Telescope Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The SLAC T-576 beam test has shown the radar echo detection method as a feasible technique to probe high-energy-particle-initiated cascades in dense media, such as ice. Furthermore, particle-level simulations show that the radar echo method has a very promising sensitivity to investigate the flux of cosmic neutrinos at energies greater than 1 PeV. Detecting these cosmic neutrinos is the aim of the Radar Echo Telescope for Neutrinos (RET-N). To show the in-nature viability of the radar echo method, we present the Radar Echo Telescope for Cosmic Rays (RET-CR). RET-CR will provide the proof of principle necessary for the construction of RET-N by detecting, using radar, the in-ice continuation of cosmic-ray induced air showers impinging on high altitude ice sheets.
