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 ...
Properties of ultraviolet light in extensive air showers

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 ...
Measurement of the depth of maximum of extensive air showers above '10 POT.18' eV
(American Physical Society - APSCollege Park, 2010-03)
We describe the measurement of the depth of maximum, Xmax, of the longitudinal development of air showers induced by cosmic rays. Almost 4000 events above 1018 eV observed by the fluorescence detector of the Pierre Auger ...
Detection of a change of slope in the spectrum of heavy mass cosmic rays primaries by the Kascade-Grande experiment
(Ceske Vysoke Uceni TechnickePrague, 2013)
KASCADE-Grande is an extensive air shower experiment devoted to the study of cosmic rays in the '10 POT. 16' ÷ '10 POT. 18' eV energy range. The array comprises various detectors allowing independent measurements of the ...
