Search for High Energy Skimming Neutrinos at a Surface Detector Array

Vo Van Thuan, Hoang Van Khanh, Pham Ngoc Diep

Abstract


In the present study we propose a new method for detectionof high energy cosmological muon neutrinos by transition radiations at amedium interface. The emerging electro-magnetic radiations induced by earth-skimming heavy charged leptons are able to trigger a few of aligned neighboringlocal water Cherenkov stations at  a surface detector array similar tothe Pierre Auger Observatory. The estimation applied tothe model of Gamma Ray Burst induced  neutrino fluxes and the spherical earth surface shows a competitive rate of muonneutrino events in the energy range below the GZK cut-off.
