Real time supernova neutrino burst detection with MACRO Academic Article uri icon


  • The MACRO experiment has been running as a supernova neutrino detector since 1989 and is sensitive to the whole galaxy since the beginning of 1992. A galactic supernova would produce some hundreds of v̄ e events in the detector. We describe our stellar gravitational collapse online monitors and alarm system, and present the results of a search for neutrino bursts from supernovae during a period of 1.5 yr. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
