P-ONE and prospects towards a global neutrino telescope network — •Matthias Huber — Technische Universität München, Deutschland
The origin of cosmic rays, the highest-energy particles ever observed is one of the greatest scientific mysteries that captures the interest of scientist for more than 100 years. High energy neutrinos, arriving from the farthest reaches of the cosmos, could hold the key to resolving this cosmic ray riddle. In 2018 first evidence for high-energy neutrino emission from the blazar TXS 0506+056 was announced by the IceCube collaboration as a result of a multi-messenger campaign. Despite this evidence no sources of high-energy neutrinos have been detected yet. The Pacific Ocean Neutrino Explorer (P-ONE) located in Canada at Cascadia Basin is designed to identify the origin of these high-energy neutrinos by covering a detector volume of 3km3 at a depth of 2660m after its completion. In order to reach maximal sensitivity to high-energy neutrino sources we furthermore propose a Planetary Neutrino Monitoring System (PLEnuM) realised by the integration of all existing neutrino telescopes in progress (KM3NeT, GVD, P-ONE and IceCube). In the first part of this presentation we will give a brief overview of the idea, the current status and the future plans of P-ONE. In the second part we will concentrate on a sensitivity study showing the enormous potential of the collaborative PLEnuM project in order to observe the sources of high-energy neutrinos.
