Detection of a particle shower at the Glashow resonance with IceCube

Abstract:

The Glashow resonance describes the resonant formation of a W- boson during the interaction of a high-energy electron antineutrino with an electron1, peaking at an antineutrino energy of 6.3 petaelectronvolts (PeV) in the rest frame of the electron. Whereas this energy scale is out of reach for currently operating and future planned particle accelerators, natural astrophysical phenomena are expected to produce antineutrinos with energies beyo...
