Radio detection of cosmic ray air showers with lopes
(Academiei RomaneBucharest, 2012)
Cosmic ray air showers are high energetic particles coming from the Universe toward the Earth every second. It is well known that they generate electromagnetic waves in the Earth atmosphere detectable on the ground. LOPES ...
Lateral distribution of the radio signal in extensive air showers measured with LOPES
The antenna array LOPES is set up at the location of the KASCADE-Grande extensive air shower experiment in Karlsruhe, Germany and aims to measure and investigate radio pulses from extensive air showers. The coincident ...
A new observable in extensive air showers
(Elsevier Science, 2016-12)
We find that the ratio rμe of the muon to the electromagnetic component of an extended air shower at the ground level provides an indirect measure of the depth Xmax of the shower maximum. This result, obtained with the ...
A study of the effect of molecular and aerosol conditions in the atmosphere on air fluorescence measurements at the Pierre Auger Observatory
(Elsevier ScienceAmsterdam, 2010-03)
The air fluorescence detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory is designed to perform calorimetric measurements of extensive air showers created by cosmic rays of above View the MathML source. To correct these measurements ...
Muon production height studies with the air shower experiment KASCADE-Grande
(Elsevier BVAmsterdam, 2011-01)
A large area (128 m2) muon tracking detector, located within the KASCADE experiment, has been built with the aim to identify muons (Eμ > 0.8 GeV) and their angular correlation in extensive air showers by track measurements ...
Properties of ultraviolet light in extensive air showers
(Iop Publishing LtdBristolInglaterra, 2000)
Photoproduction total cross section and shower development
(American Physical Society, 2015-12)
The total photoproduction cross section at ultrahigh energies is obtained using a model based on QCD minijets and soft-gluon resummation and the ansatz that infrared gluons limit the rise of total cross sections. This cross ...
Probing the radio emission from air showers with polarization measurements
(American Physical Society - APSCollege Park, 2014-03)
The emission of radio waves from air showers has been attributed to the so-called geomagnetic emission process. At frequencies around 50 MHz this process leads to coherent radiation which can be observed with rather simple ...
New measurements of cosmic ray air showers with the digital radio interferometer LOPES
LOPES is a digital radio interferometer which measures the radio emission of extensive cosmic ray air showers. It mainly consists of 30 dipole antennas installed in co-location with KASCADE-Grande at the Karlsruhe Institute ...
