We describe the photoproduction interactions of ultrahigh energy protons on the universal photon backgrounds and the production of very high-energy neutrinos and γ-rays in such interactions. We compare the production in propagation in the microwave background to that in the extragalactic background light. The propagation of heavy nuclei is discussed only briefly. We show the extreme models for cosmogenic neutrino production and the limits set on them by different experiments.

Nous décrivons la production de neutrinos et rayons gamma de très haute énergie lors des interactions de photo-production des protons d'ultra haute énergie sur les fonds diffus de photons. Nous comparons la production sur le fond diffus cosmologique à celle sur le fond diffus de lumière extragalactique. La propagation des noyaux massifs est brièvement évoquée. Nous présentons les modèles extrêmes de production de neutrinos et les comparons aux limites obtenues par différentes expériences.
