AMANDA-II map(ps) of Northern Hemisphere neutrino sky using data from 2000-2002 (paper)

The AMANDA-II team has produced the most detailed map of the high energy neutrino sky so far. No sources of continuous emission have yet been observed, but data is streaming in.

The dream, now more than 40 years old, of constructing a radically different telescope has been realized by the innovative AMANDA-II project. Instead of sensing light, like all telescopes since the time of Galileo, AMANDA responds to a fundamental particle called a neutrino. Neutrino messengers provide a startlingly new view of the Universe.

Members of the AMANDA team designed the first practical implementation of the generic ideas formulated many years ago, and re-introduced in late 80's with the twist of using Antarctic ice instead of water. Due to the remoteness of the site in Antarctica, we decided to minimize complexity of the design while recognizing that the simplest devices and system architectures were sufficient to answer the key questions. This concept proved highly effective. AMANDA is now an international collaboration involving institutions from the US, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, and Venezuela.
