Correlation of high energy neutrinos and gamma rays on the direction of Fermi Bubbles

We study the spatial correlation of astrophysical neutrinos detected by IceCube with the geometry of the two large globular structures located in the center of our Galaxy, known as Fermi Bubbles. Using the Fermi-LAT data collected during 8 years and the upper limits derived by the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) gamma-ray observatory, we use a hybrid (lepto-hadronic) model to investigate a possible correlation with the high-energy neutrinos in the direction of the Fermi Bubbles. We find that these events are possibly not associated with the Northern Bubble but do not dismiss a possible correlation with the Southern globular structure. We expect in the coming years to improve the gamma-ray observations through the Cerenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and the Southern Gamma-Ray Survey Observatory (SGSO) observatories in order to test a possible hadronic emission with the Southern Bubble.
