The final results of processing the data from the balloon-born experiment ATIC-2 (Antarctica, 2002–2003) for the energy spectra of protons and He, C, O, Ne, Mg, Si, and Fe nuclei, the spectrum of all particles, and the mean logarithm of atomic weight of primary cosmic rays as a function of energy are presented. The final results are based on improvement of the methods used earlier, in particular, considerably increased resolution of the charge spectrum. The preliminary conclusions on the… 

Spectra of abundant nuclei in sources, according to the ATIC experiment

One of the most important results from the ATIC experiment is its collection of the energy spectra of abundant cosmic-ray nuclei: protons, He, C, O, Ne, Mg, Si, and Fe, measured in terms of energy

Energy spectra of nuclei from protons to iron in sources, according to the ATIC experiment

in the energy range from 50 GeV to tenths of TeV. In this report the ATIC energy spectra of abundant nuclei are back propagated to the spectra in sources in terms of magnetic rigidity using a number

First results of the cosmic ray NUCLEON experiment

The NUCLEON experiment was designed to study the chemical composition and energy spectra of galactic cosmic ray nuclei from protons to zinc at energies of ∼ 1011–1015 eV per particle. The research

Characteristics of the energy spectra of cosmic rays and a single source model

As the accuracy of measuring the energy spectra of different nuclei in the primary cosmic ray flux and their ratios grows, more evidence appears for the nonpower character of these spectra at

Measuring the spectra of high-energy cosmic-ray particles in the PAMELA experiment

The available data on the energy spectra of electrons, protons, and helium nuclei in the high-energy region are fragmentary, a situation made worse by their scarcity. Due to limitations imposed on


Data obtained in the Advanced Thin Ionization Calorimeter (ATIC-2), Cosmic Ray Energetics and Mass (CREAM), and Payload for Antimatter Matter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics (PAMELA)

Anomalous Galactic Cosmic Rays in the Framework of AMS-02

The cosmic-ray (CR) energy spectra of protons and helium nuclei, which are the most abundant components of cosmic radiation, exhibit a remarkable hardening at energies above 100 GeV/nucleon. Recent

High-energy cosmic ray muons in the Earth’s atmosphere

We present the calculations of the atmospheric muon fluxes at energies 10–107 GeV based on a numerical-analytical method for solving the hadron-nucleus cascade equations. It allows the non-power-law



Energy spectra and composition of primary cosmic rays

New results are described on the energy spectra and relative abundances of primary cosmic ray nuclei from carbon to iron. The measurement was performed on the Spacelab-2 mission of the Space Shuttle
