The relativistic electrons responsible for the observed broad band synchrotron / inverse Compton emission from blazars can be either directly accelerated at the source (primary electrons) or produced in result of interactions of high energy protons with surrounding medium (secondary electrons). If the observed electromagnetic emission from blazars is produced by secondary electrons, neutrino...

The ANTARES telescope, with a duty cycle close to unity and a full hemisphere of the sky at all the times visible, is well suited to detect neutrinos produced in astrophysical transient sources. Assuming a known neutrino production period, the background and point-source sensitivity can be drastically improved by selecting a narrow time window around it. Blazars are radio-loud active galactic...

The study of the cosmic ray anisotropy in the TeV-PeV energy range could provide clues about the origin and propagation of cosmic rays in our galaxy. The measurement of this per-mille-anisotropy requires data sets with several billion cosmic-ray events. A sample of this size has been collected over the last six years by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the south pole, which detects cosmic-ray...

The KM3NeT-Italy Collaboration has entered the production stage of an 8 tower apparatus that will be deployed at about 100 km away from the Sicily coast. The architecture of the system is based on the NEMO Phase-2 prototype tower that is taking data since the deployment in March 2013. In order to optimize production costs, power consumpion, and usability some components have been re-engineered...
