    • Axion emission and detection from a galactic supernova 

      Carenza, Pierluca; Co, Giampaolo; Fischer, Tobias; Giannotti, Maurizio; Mirizzi, Alessandro; Rauscher, Thomas (Verlag Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, 2019)
      A Galactic supernova (SN) axion signal would be detected in a future neutrino Mtonclass water Cherenkov detector, such as the proposed Hyper-Kamiokande in Japan. The main detection channel for axions is absorption on the ...
