Abstract :

During the last years TeV emission has been detected from Pulsar wind nebulae. A new model by now has been developed explaining part of this emission by a hadronic component which consequently also predicts TeV neutrino emission. As galactic sources, many of the PWN are in direct view of the Antares neutrino telescope which can with its excellent angular resolution for several of the sources probe the emission, also considering the morphology of the sources. We use the IceCube non detection to put constraints on the fraction of TeV photons that might be contributed by hadrons and estimate the number of neutrino events that can be expected from these sources.
