Abstract
By using clear water as detection medium, the KM3NeT Neutrino detector currently under construction in the Mediterranean Sea will be able to study the high-energy neutrino sky with an unprecedented resolving power for each neutrino flavour. Simulations and validation in the ANTARES detector, show that degree-level resolution for cascade events will be achieved, opening up the possibility to do neutrino astronomy with these neutrinos. For muon neutrinos, the resolution will surpass 0.1 degree at high energies, offering an order of magnitude more resolving power compared to the current state of the art. We will discuss features of the water that make this possible, as well as the latest reconstruction methods for tracks and cascades.
