Studies of an alternative glass pressure housing for optical modules in the KM3NeT neutrino telescope

Abstract : KM3NeT is a future European research infrastructure, which will host a neutrino telescope with a volume of at least one cubic kilometre in the deep Mediterranean Sea. This challenging project will require the installation of thousands of photon detectors with their related electronics and calibration systems several kilometres below the sea level. The design builds on the extensive experience gained in the pioneering ANTARES, NEMO and NESTOR underwater neutrino telescope projects. However, independently of the technical and scientific challenges inherent to such a project, new solutions must be pursued in order to significantly increase the cost effectiveness. This contribution presents the first results of a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) performed at CPPM, in association with the Schott glass R&D department, for an alternative low cost glass pressure housing for optical modules in the KM3NeT neutrino telescope.
