Hardware Development for the Radio Neutrino Observatory in Greenland

Speaker

Mr Daniel Smith (University of Chicago)

Description

The Radio Neutrino Observatory in Greenland (RNO-G) is designed to make the first observations of ultra-high energy neutrinos at energies above 100 PeV via the detection of Askaryan radiation and serve as a technology pathfinder for IceCube-Gen2. The experiment will be composed of 35 autonomous stations deployed over a 5 x 6 km grid near to NSF's Summit Station in Greenland. The electronics chain of each station is optimized for sensitivity and low power, incorporating deep and surface 150 - 600 MHz RF antennas, low-noise amplifiers, custom RF-over-fiber systems, and an FPGA-based phased array trigger. Each station will operate at 25 W, allowing for a live time of ~70% from a solar power system. I will also present on the DAQ and communication systems as well as plans for the first seasons of deployment in Summer 2020 and Summer 2021.
