The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant to Stijn Buitink for a three-year research project in astroparticle physics at the KVI. The title of the project is ‘Turning the Moon into a neutrino detector with LOFAR’.
The earth is under constant bombardment by cosmic neutrinos. Where do they come from and how are they produced? These are important questions in astrophysics and new detection methods are required to answer them. This research will develop a technique to measure the impact of cosmic neutrinos striking the moon, using the revolutionary Dutch LOFAR radio telescope.
