Description

The RET-N project aims to detect > 10 PeV neutrino-initiated cascades in ice using the radar echo technique. This will be a novel way of detecting cosmic neutrinos that will complement current approaches by other experiments. Here we discuss details of detector optimisation studies for the RET-N pathfinder and prototyping project. Furthermore, we present the modelling efforts to predict the radar signal from an ultra high energy neutrino or cosmic ray induced particle cascade.
