A surface detector trigger for the southern hemisphere Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory implemented using Altera programmable logic devices (PLDs) is presented. The ultra large-scale integrated… Continue Reading
The Auger Observatory will be the largest air shower array ever built. This array of water Cherenkov pools offers the unique advantage of a large acceptance at very low zenith angle. Auger is… Continue Reading
The basic detector unit of the Auger Observatory ground array is a water tank of 12,000 liter capacity, used as a Cerenkov detector. This contribution describes the construc- tion of the polyethylene… Continue Reading

Detecting the fluorescence yield of light emitted by Nitrogen when a high energy Cosmic Ray shower devel- ops through the atmosphere, it is possible to perform a pre- cise calorimetric measurement of… Continue Reading
The detectors of the surface array of the Pierre Auger Observatory are water Cherenkov tanks. The signals from each tank are read out using three photomultipliers. The energy of the primary particle… Continue Reading
