|Experimental and theoretical aspects of high energy neutrino astrophysics
|Hill, Gary Colin
|Dept. of Physics
|This thesis presents the results of theoretical and experimental investigations into the field of high energy neutrino astrophyics. The properties of neutrino are reviewed, along with potential sources, both accelerator sources and non-accelerator sources. The results of a pilot study testing the feasibility of locating a detector in the Blue Lake, Mount Gambier, South Australia, are described. Simulations of the performance of a Blue Lake detector are carried out, aimed at determining the optimal design of a photomultiplier array, based on the water attenuation length results. The question of energy discrimination is also examined.
