Abstract
The IceCube neutrino observatory, located at the South Pole, has discovered the astrophysical diffuse flux and multi-PeV neutrino events. The 10-100 PeV energy range is key to test the possible common origin of IceCube neutrinos and ultra-high energy cosmic rays. In this work,we present a new analysis targeting at cascade-like showers of deposit energy 10-100 PeV. The new event selection is sensitive to both contained and partially-contained cascades.
