The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna

Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) was conceived to be the most sensitive instrument for the detection of UHE neutrinos (\(E_{\nu }>10^{18}\) eV) to date. A balloon-borne array of radio antennas, ANITA observes the Antarctic ice sheet and searches for the impulsive radio emission expected to arise when an UHE neutrino interacts in the ice.
