Research Interests
Albrecht Karle is performing research in particle astrophysics. His research aims to understand the origin of energetic cosmic rays in the Universe. The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole has discovered a cosmic neutrino flux of high energy. Combining these data with other cosmic messengers, such as gamma rays allows to trace the sources of the energetic radiation, such as active galaxies. The detectors need to be very large and are embedded deep in the glacial ice to record the interactions of neutrinos.
