Abstract

The detection of astrophysical neutrinos by IceCube has opened a new window for the observation of our universe. The use of antennas for detecting astroparticles has been proven useful and accurate after many years of radio cosmic-ray detections, and will be a valuable asset for increasing the statistics for the detection of neutrinos < 10PeV and reaching out to the highest energies. The radio technique requires realistic and precise simulations of the electric field created after the neutrino interacts with the detector volume, how it propagates through media, and what measurable signal it produces in the detector. With the goal of providing accurate, fast simulations of neutrino-induced electric fields, we have created the NuRadioMC code. It builds on the experience of software used for current radio neutrino and cosmic ray experiments.
