Updates from the OVRO-LWA: Commissioning a Full-Duty-Cycle Radio-Only Cosmic Ray Detector
The Owens Valley Radio ObservatoryLong Wavelength Array (OVRO-LWA) in Eastern California is currently undergoing an expansion to 352 dual-polarization antennas and new signal processing
Simulation study of the relative Askaryan fraction at the south pole
We use CoREAS simulations to study the ratio of geomagnetic and Askaryan radio emission from cosmic-ray air showers at the location of the South Pole. The fraction of Askaryan emission relative to
Framework and tools for the simulation and analysis of the radio emission from air showers at IceCube
The Surface Enhancement of the IceTop air-shower array will include the addition of radio antennas and scintillator panels, co-located with the existing ice-Cherenkov tanks and covering an area of

The Cosmic-Ray Composition between 2 PeV and 2 EeV Observed with the TALE Detector in Monocular Mode
We report on a measurement of the cosmic ray composition by the Telescope Array Low-Energy Extension (TALE) air fluorescence detector (FD). By making use of the Cherenkov light signal in addition to

A large light-mass component of cosmic rays at 1017–1017.5 electronvolts from radio observations
TLDR
Radio measurements of Xmax with a mean uncertainty of 16 grams per square centimetre for air showers initiated by cosmic rays with energies of 1017–1017.5 electronvolts enable us to determine the mass spectrum of the cosmic rays: a mixed composition, with a light-mass fraction (protons and helium nuclei) of about 80 per cent.
On the cosmic-ray energy scale of the LOFAR radio telescope
Cosmic rays are routinely measured at LOFAR, both with a dense array of antennas and with the LOFAR Radboud air shower Array (LORA) which is an array of plastic scintillators. In this paper, we
Cosmic-ray energy spectrum and composition up to the ankle - the case for a second Galactic component
We have carried out a detailed study to understand the observed energy spectrum and composition of cosmic rays with energies up to ~10^18 eV. Our study shows that a single Galactic component with
Measurement of the Radiation Energy in the Radio Signal of Extensive Air Showers as a Universal Estimator of Cosmic-Ray Energy.
TLDR
The radiation energy provides direct access to the calorimetric energy in the electromagnetic cascade of extensive air showers and allows the direct calibration of any cosmic-ray radio detector against the well-established energy scale of the Pierre Auger Observatory.
