Searching for neutrino decoherence from quantum gravitational space-time fluctuations with IceCube.

Not scheduled


Dr Tom Stuttard (Niels Bohr Institute, IceCube)


Neutrino decoherence can result from coupling between neutrinos and their environment, including quantum gravitational fluctuations in the structure of space-time, producing characteristic damping signatures in neutrino probability over large distances. Here we present a study of the phenomenology of neutrino decoherence in atmospheric and astrophysical neutrinos resulting from heuristic space-time fluctuation cases, namely light cone fluctuations and neutrino-virtual black hole interactions, and a search for the resulting signals using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
