Abstract [en]

The Moon provides a huge effective detector volume for ultrahigh energy cosmic neutrinos, which generate coherent radio pulses in the surface layer through the Askaryan effect. Simulations show that radio instruments, on board a satellite in orbit around the Moon, can detect neutrinos with an energy above 1019 eV, i.e. near and beyond the interesting Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin (GZK) limit. We summarize here our results from (Stl et al 2006 Preprint astro-ph/0604199) on the experimental efficiency for different satellite parameters.
