Abstract

We examine the impact of electromagnetic properties of neutrinos on the annihilation of relic neutrinos with ultrahigh energy cosmic neutrinos for the nu(nu) over bar -> gamma gamma process. For this process, photon-neutrino decoupling temperature is calculated via effective Lagrangian model beyond the standard model. We find that photon-neutrino decoupling temperature can be importantly reduced below the QCD phase transition with the model independent analysis defining electromagnetic properties of neutrinos.
