Title: Neutrinos from Choked Jets Accompanied by Type-II Supernovae

Abstract

The origin of the IceCube neutrinos is still an open inquiry. Upper limits from diffuse gamma-ray observations predict that the neutrino sources are either distant or hidden from gamma-ray observations. It is possible that the neutrinos are produced in jets that are formed in core-collapsing massive stars and fail to break out, the so-called choked jets. We report neutrinos from the jets choked in the hydrogen envelopes of red supergiant stars. Fast photo-meson cooling softens the neutrino spectrum, making it hard to explain the PeV neutrinos observed by IceCube in a one-component scenario, but a two-component model can explain the spectrum. Moreover, we predict that a newly born jet-driven type-II supernova may be observed to be associated with a neutrino burst detected by IceCube.
