Searching for electromagnetic counterparts to high-energy neutrinos In September 2017, the detection of a high-energy neutrino in coincidence with a flaring gamma-ray blazar revealed the first compelling high-energy neutrino source candidate. At the same time gamma-ray blazars are disfavored as the dominant neutrino source class. Other plausible source candidates are tidal disruption events, low-luminosity gamma-ray bursts and supernovae. Combining neutrino data with electromagnetic measurements in a multi-messenger approach will increase the sensitivity to identify other neutrino sources and help to…

Primordial Black Holes as Dark Matter Primordial black holes are black holes that may have formed in the early Universe. Their masses potentially span a range from as low as the Planck mass up to many orders of magnitude above the solar mass. This, in particular, includes black holes of the order of 10 solar masses, like those recently discovered by LIGO. These may be of primordial origin. In order to qualitatively and quantitatively asses this and related scenarios, a…

Probing Particle Physics with IceCube The IceCube observatory located at the South Pole is a cubic-kilometre optical Cherenkov telescope primarily designed for the detection of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. IceCube became fully operational in 2010 and reached a milestone in 2013 by the first observation of cosmic neutrinos in the TeV-PeV energy range. This observation does not only mark an important breakthrough in neutrino astronomy, but it also provides a new probe of particle physics related to neutrino production, mixing, and…

On the difficulties to derive reliable CNO abundances in hot massive stars Though low in number, massive stars play an essential role in the early and present Universe, due to their enormous energy output and production of metals. Moreover, the end-products of massive star evolution are among the most spectacular events/objects in our Cosmos: Supernovae, (long-duration) Gamma-Ray Bursters and Black Holes. Unfortunately, the evolution of massive stars is not as well understood as required for reliably predicting the different evolutionary…

The Magnetic Field of the Milky Way The Milky Way's magnetic field has coherent structures on Galactic scales, following spiral arms but also Galactic outflows. It also has a turbulent component, which influences the galactic ecosystem in many ways, such as delaying star formation, isotropizing Galactic cosmic rays, and providing significant pressure component. These magnetic field components can only be detected indirectly, through the signature they leave on various kinds of radiation and particles, observations of which are fitted to…

Recent Results from X-ray Studies of Supernova Remnants X-ray emission from supernova remnants provides us with probes to high energy phenomena such as acceleration of cosmic-ray particles and nucleosynthesis in supernova explosions. In this talk, I will present some of recent results that I, with my students and collaborators, obtained from observations with Suzaku, Chandra, XMM-Newton, and NuSTAR satellites. I will mainly cover results related to particle acceleration and over-ionized plasma in Galactic supernova remnants. I will also talk about…
