Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center

WIPAC is a scientific center for astroparticle research located at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. As the host institution of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory - a cubic kilometer neutrino and cosmic ray detector in the South Pole ice - WIPAC is the hub for the international IceCube Collaboration of more than 300 researchers from 52 research universities and laboratories in 12 countries. WIPAC is also involved in the Askaryan Radio Array (ARA), the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC), Dark Matter in Ice (DM-Ice), and the CHerenkov detectors In mine PitS (CHIPS) projects. With this suite of experiments, research at WIPAC covers neutrino physics and astronomy, cosmic rays, dark matter, and gamma ray astronomy.

Primary support comes from the National Science Foundation.
