Résumé : The Antarctic Muon And Neutrino Detector Array (AMANDA) is a neutrino telescope embedded deep in the 2.8 km-thick polar icecap at the South Pole. AMANDA aims to detect high-energy cosmic neutrinos from sources where the highest-energy cosmic rays are produced and accelerated. We present recent results from AMANDA on searches for high-energy neutrinos of extraterrestrial origin. We have searched for a diffuse flux of neutrinos, neutrino point sources, and neutrinos from GRBs and from WIMP annihilations in the Sun or the center of the Earth. We also present a preliminary result on the first energy spectrum above a few TeV for atmospheric neutrinos. The status of IceCube, the km3-sized successor to AMANDA, is reviewed after its first successful construction season.
