The glass of the pressure sphere absorbs most light below 350 nm. Slide34:  Application of Wavelength Shifters (WLS) Earlier attempts indicated that an overall gain of 40% can be achieved. However, WLS layers deteriorated in water and where mechanically unstable. Now, a water-proof and mechanically stable WLS foil exists. Slide35:  Will be optically coupled with a very thin layer of gel (less then 1mm) and fixed at optical module support.

Summary:  Amanda-II produces new limits on point sources, diffuse fluxes, GRB, WIMPs, and measures atmospheric neutrino spectrum up to 100 TeV. AMANDA-II has reached the sensitivity needed to search from neutrino fluxes from TeV gamma sources of similar strength to the instrinsic gamma flux. Next: 2000-2003 data coherently processed Baikal produces new limits on diffuse flux, WIMPs, and GRB and will stay largest neutrino telescope on northern hemisphere for 2-3 years. IceCube is established as MRE, 6 strings to be produced in 2004. DESY-Zeuthen ready for OM production New methods - WLS and acoustic – may enhance IceCube performance considerably. R&D in Zeuthen. 5.
