Search for stellar gravitational collapses with the MACRO detector Academic Article uri icon


  • We present the final results of the search for stellar gravitational collapses obtained by the MACRO experiment. The detector was active for a stellar collapse search for more than 11 years and it was sensitive to collapses occurring all over in our galaxy for 8.6 years. A real time system for a prompt recognition of neutrino bursts was developed and was operating on-line for almost the whole life of the experiment. No signal compatible with a neutrino burst from a galactic supernova was observed. ¬© Springer-Verlag / Societ√† Italiana di Fisica 2004.
