Abstract

Carpet-2 is an air-shower array at Baksan Valley, Russia, equipped with a large-area (175m2) muon detector, which makes it possible to separate primary photons from hadrons. We report the first results of the search for primary photons with energies Eγ < 1PeV, directionally associated with IceCube high-energy neutrino events, in the data obtained in 3080 days of Carpet-2 live time.
