XXth International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics

Poster Abstract


Performance, Simulation and Flux Limits from the RICE Detector

The RICE experiment (Radio Ice Cherenkov Experiment) at the South Pole, co-located with the AMANDA experiment, aims to detect ultra- high energy electron neutrinos interacting in cold Polar ice. Such interactions produce electromagnetic showers, which emit coherent, radio-frequency Cherenkov radiation. We describe the experimental apparatus and procedures used to measure the neutrino flux, and we report upper limits on the ultra-high energy, electron neutrino flux based on analysis of the August, 2000 data.
