Light diffusion in birefringent polycrystals and the IceCube ice anisotropy
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory instruments about 1 km 3 of deep, glacial ice at the geographic South Pole with 5160 photomultipliers to detect Cherenkov light from charged relativistic particles. The experiment pursues a wide range of scientific questions ranging from particle physics such as neutrino oscillations to high-energy neutrino astronomy. Most of these efforts rely heavily on an ever more precise understanding of the optical properties of the instrumented ice.
