Recent results from operation of the ANTARES deep-sea neutrino telescope

Abstract : The ANTARES neutrino telescope is currently the largest operating water Cherenkov detector and the largest neutrino detector in the Northern hemisphere. It comprises 885 optical modules distributed on 12 detection lines anchored at a depth of 2.5 km in the Mediterranean Sea near Toulon, France; at a latitude that accesses a large part of the Galactic Plane, including the Galactic Centre. Its main scientific target is the detection of multi-TeV neutrinos predicted in charged cosmic particle acceleration mechanisms. In addition, ANTARES has developed a range of multi-messenger search strategies to look for correlations with optical counterparts and other cosmic messengers including γ-rays and charged cosmic rays. Other topics of investigation include the search for neutrinos from dark matter annihilation, searches for exotic particles and the measurement of neutrino oscillations. Details of the telescope are discussed together with examples of recently-conducted searches
