Tau neutrino identification with the IceCube experiment would open new windows to neutrino physics as well as enable novel searches for cosmic neutrino sources. This work aims at a identification of tau neutrinos with astrophysical origin at energies above ∼ 100TeV. For identification, we search for a double pulse structure in the signal of one of IceCubes Digital Optical Modules originating from a tau neutrino interaction and a subsequent tau decay within the detector. In this work, we present constraints on the tau neutrino flux based on an event sample with a livetime of about 7.5 years of IceCube data.
