The km-scale detector

In order to observe with relevant statistics the diffuse flux of neutrinos from AGNs and from point sources, and to be sensitive to neutralinos with masses above 1 TeV, a km-scale detector is necessary. We believe that the technology needed to build such a detector is available. The first phase of the ANTARES project, described below, aims at demonstrating the feasibility of such a detector. Other detectors and projects are AMANDA [29], BAIKAL [30], DUMAND (now stopped) [31], and NESTOR [32].
