Resonant scattering and charm showers in ultrahigh-energy neutrino interactions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

13 Scopus citations


Electron antineutrinos with energy 7 × 106 GeV have much-enhanced cross sections due to W-boson production off electrons. Possible signals due to cosmic-ray sources are estimated. Higher-energy antineutrinos can efficiently produce a W accompanied by radiation. Another possibility, which could lead to shadowing at modest depths, is resonant production of a charged Higgs particle. The importance of muon production by charm showers in rock is pointed out.
