Cosmic ray spectrum from 250 TeV to 10 PeV using IceTop

Using IceTop, the surface component of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, the all-particle cosmic ray energy spectrum has been determined above a few PeV. The measured energy spectrum leaves a gap of

Cosmic Ray Spectrum from 250 TeV to 10 PeV using IceTop

In this analysis, we lower the energy threshold of IceTop from 2 PeV to 250 TeV, narrowing the 3 gap between IceTop and direct measurements. To collect lower energy events, we implemented a 4 new
