The KM3NeT/ARCA neutrino telescope, in which IFIC participates, already has six detection units in operation


KM3NeT is one of the ESFRI high priority projects and implies the close international collaboration of more than 50 scientific institutes and 250 scientists. Recently, five new ARCA neutrino telescope detection units have been installed, which are already operational and collecting data.

For more than two decades, IFIC has been participating in neutrino telescope projects. In this case, has actively contributed to the design, construction and calibration of the six detection lines currently operating in the initial core of the KM3NeT / ARCA.

The ARCA telescope in Sicily, together with ORCA in France, will allow scientists to identify astrophysical sources of high-energy neutrinos.
