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.
