Cosmic rays interacting in the solar atmosphere can produce high energy neutrinos, which could be detected with IceCube. Neutrinos are produced through the decay of pions and kaons, similar to cosmic ray air showers in the Earth’s atmosphere. Due to the lower solar atmospheric density, the neutrino spectrum from the Sun is expected to be harder as mesons tend to decay before they can interact or encounter any significant energy loss. The solar disk neutrino flux could be visible over the atmospheric backgrounds at energies above a few hundred GeV. We present IceCube’s sensitivity as determined by a dedicated analysis for solar atmospheric neutrinos.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
