Pulsars Covered by the Dense Envelopes as High-Energy Neutrino Sources

H. Sato
1977 Progress of theoretical physics  
A newly-born pulsar is covered by the expanding dense envelope, and high-energy charged particles accelerated near the pulsar are effectively converted into high-energy neutrinos with energies of 10 13 "-'10 14 eV through meson production and its decay. Such a opaque phase continues for a couple of months. This model was first proposed by Berezinsky, but we will show that his flux estimation is too high by a factor of "-'10 5 • This reduction is needed because the particle flux is limited by
