The fluorescence detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory
The Pierre Auger Observatory is a hybrid detector for ultra-high energy cosmic rays. It combines a surface array to measure secondary particles at ground level together with a fluorescence detector to measure the development ...
Techniques for measuring aerosol attenuation using the Central Laser Facility at the Pierre Auger Observatory
(Institute of Physics - IOPBristol, 2013-04)
The Pierre Auger Observatory in Malargüe, Argentina, is designed to study the properties of ultra-high energy cosmic rays with energies above 1018 eV. It is a hybrid facility that employs a Fluorescence Detector to perform ...
Performance of CMS muon reconstruction in pp collision events at √s = 7TeV
The performance of muon reconstruction, identification, and triggering in CMS has been studied using 40 pb-1 of data collected in pp collisions at s = 7 TeV at the LHC in 2010. A few benchmark sets of selection criteria ...
Jointly multi-user detection and channel estimation with genetic algorithm
This work aims at proposing the use of the evolutionary computation methodology in order to jointly solve the multiuser channel estimation (MuChE) and detection problems at its maximum-likelihood, both related to the direct ...
Calibration of the Logarithmic-Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA) Radio Stations at the Pierre Auger Observatory using an Octocopter
(IOP Publishing, 2017-10)
An in-situ calibration of a logarithmic periodic dipole antenna with a frequency cover- age of 30 MHz to 80 MHz is performed. Such antennas are part of a radio station system used for detection of cosmic ray induced air ...
Level-1 track trigger for the upgrade of the CMS detector at HL-LHC
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) studies proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. With the LHC colliding proton bunches every 25 nanoseconds, the volume ...
