Development of a highly efficient PMT Winston-cone system for fluorescence measurement of extensive air showers
Fluorescence telescopes are important instruments to measure extensive air showers initiated by ultra-high energetic cosmic rays. They measure the longitudinal profile of the energy deposited in the
Measurement of the Sky Photon Background Flux at the Auger Observatory
The sky photon background flux has been measured at the southe rn Auger site in Malargue, Argentina, using the observatory's fluorescence detectors (FD). The analysi s is based on ADC variances of
