As of 2023, the Square Kilometre Array will constitute the world's largest radio telescope, offering unprecedented capabilities for a diverse science programme in radio astronomy. At the same time, the SKA will be ideally suited to detect extensive air showers initiated by cosmic rays in the Earth's atmosphere via their radio emission. With its very dense and uniform antenna spacing in a fiducial area of one km 2 and its large bandwidth of 50-350 MHz, the low-frequency part of the SKA will…

Expected performance of air-shower measurements with the radio-interferometric technique
Interferometric measurements with arrays of radio antennas are a powerful and widely used technique in astronomy. Recently, this technique has been revisited for the reconstruction of extensive air

Final results of the LOPES radio interferometer for cosmic-ray air showers
LOPES, the LOFAR prototype station, was an antenna array for cosmic-ray air showers operating from 2003 2013 within the KASCADE-Grande experiment. Meanwhile, the analysis is finished and the data of
Radio-wave detection of ultra-high-energy neutrinos and cosmic rays
Radio waves, perhaps because they are uniquely transparent in our terrestrial atmosphere, as well as the cosmos beyond, or perhaps because they are macroscopic, so the basic instruments of detection
