Title Proposal for INTEGRAL ToO observations of IceCube neutrinos


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-nk1maf0
Author Dr Volodymyr Savchenko
Description The IceCube collaboration is distributing alerts of high-energy neutrino detections in order to allow follow-up searches for possible counterparts. Finding such counterparts would provide important clues on the origin of the high-energy neutrinos and on the nature of the high-energy cosmic ray accelerators. We ask for pointed ToO observation of the HESE (High Energy Starting Events) and EHE (Extremely High Energy) neutrinos detected by IceCube and reported either in public or in private GCNs, to hunt for a possible hard X-ray and gamma-ray counterparts. In absence of a detection, we will set the most stringent upper limits. We intend to promptly communicate the results of our ToOs to the general community, thus supporting additional multiwavelength follow-ups.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
