    AMANDA and IceCube neutrino projects

AMANDA and IceCube are neutrino detectors located deep in the Antarctic ice at the South Pole. The aim of the project is to search for neutrinos from astrophysical origin.
I joined the project in 2000 with financing from the FWO (Krediet aan Navorsers, onderzoeksproject). My interest is the search for neutrinos from dark matter accumulated in the Earth or the Sun.
The IIHE team and its activities in AMANDA and IceCube are described here.
