Paleo-detectors and neutrinos
Is it possible find neutrinos from galactic core collapse SN with a paleo-detector?
Code for calculating track length spectra in paleo-detectors and exploring paleo-detector sensitivity to SN neutrinos. This code can be used to reproduce the results of arXiv:1906.05800, "Paleo-Detectors for Galactic Supernova Neutrinos".

Please get in touch with any questions, comments or bug-reports.
The core of the code runs on the
paleopy package. This includes data for converting recoil energies to track lengths, along with tables of background distributions. This then allows you to calculate all the relevant track length distributions. The currently supported minerals are Nchwaningite, Sinjarite, Halite, Olivine, Gypsum and Phlogopite.
To run the notebooks it is required to install the paleopy package with:
pip3 install git+https://github.com/tedwards2412/paleopy
Details need to be added here
The code in this repo should run with Python3. Standard library requirements are in
requirements.txt. In addition, you will need
swordfish for performing the statistical analysis and
WIMpy for calculating the DM and neutrino spectra.
