Studying Low Energy Neutrinos at the South Pole with the PINGU Detector

Abstract content

IceCube and its low energy extension DeepCore have been deployed at the South Pole and taking data since early 2011. DeepCore provides a neutrino energy threshold of about 10 GeV, which allows IceCube to access a rich variety of physics including indirectly searching for WIMP dark matter and studying atmospheric neutrinos. Currently under consideration is a new in-fill array named PINGU, which will continue to lower the threshold for neutrino detection. This new lower threshold opens up opportunities to explore a great deal of new physics, including the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy. This talk will discuss the PINGU detector and the new physics it makes available with a focus on the hierarchy measurement.
