Diffuse neutrinos from failed supernovae

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


I study the diffuse flux of electron antineutrinos from stellar collapses with direct black hole formation (failed supernovae This flux is more energetic than that from successful supernovae, and therefore it might contribute substantially to the total diffuse flux above realistic detection thresholds. The total flux might be considerably higher than previously thought, and approach the sensitivity of SuperKamiokande.
