Determining the Ice Layer Tilt at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory

Semester: Summer 2023


Presentation description

This research aims to determine the ice layer tilt at the South Pole for the IceCube Neutrino Observatory using simulations and image analysis. By simulating light propagation through the ice through using a framework called CamSim, I got images with different scattering lengths and orientations of the LED aimed towards a camera. Using the images generated as templates, I added noise and found test statistic distributions then calculated the sensitivities using a reference case and feldman-cousins interval. Once my analysis is finished, by using LEDs on the digital optical modules we will be able to determine the ice layer tilt at the detector, giving us a better reconstruction of neutrino/cosmic ray events in the ice.
