Limits to the diffuse flux of UHE tau neutrinos at EeV energies from the Pierre Auger Observatory

By O. Blanch Bigas


To be published in Proceedings of the 30th International Cosmic Ray Conference, July 3 - 11, 2007, Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. 4 pages, 5 figuresWith the Pierre Auger Observatory we have the capability of detecting ultra-high energy neutrinos by searching for very inclined showers with a significant electromagnetic component. In this work we discuss the discrimination power of the instrument for earth skimming tau neutrinos with ultra-high energies. Based on the data collected since January 2004 an upper limit to the diffuse flux of neutrinos at EeV energies is presented and systematic uncertainties are discussed
