Abstract:Ultra-high energy neutrinos and photons, with energies above 1 EeV and 10 EeV respectively, can be detected with the Surface Detector array (SD) of the Pierre Auger Observatory. Downward- going neutrinos of all flavours interacting in the atmosphere at zenith angles θ > 60◦, upward-going tau neutrinos (“Earth- skimming”), as well as photons in the zenith range 30◦ − 60◦ can be identified through the broad time-structure of the signals expected to be induced in the SD stations. An additional signature for photon-induced air showers is the steeper lateral distribution of secondary particles at ground with respect to the nucleonic showers. Stringent limits are set to the diffuse flux of ultra-high energy (UHE) neutrinos and photons, using data collected between 2004 and mid-2013, under the hypothesis of an E[sup]−2 spectrum for signal primaries.
