* Title: New Optical Sensors for IceCube-Gen2
* Abstract: IceCube is currently the world’s largest neutrino detector with an instrumented volume of 1 km³. It has been running successfully for several years. IceCube-Gen2 is a planned extension of the instrumented volume to several km³ using improved optical sensors. The extension will improve both the high-energy and low-energy detection capabilities of IceCube. This talk presents the different optical sensors that are under development, their status and capabilities. With a focus on the WOM, the wavelength-shifting optical module. The WOM a large photosensitive area and very low noise and is therefore very well suited for the low-energy extension PINGU.
