We present time-domain Monte Carlo simulations of radio emission from cosmic ray air showers in the scheme of coherent geosynchrotron radiation. Our model takes into account the important air shower characteristics such as the lateral and longitudinal particle distributions, the particle track length and energy distributions, a realistic magnetic field geometry and the shower evolution as a whole. The Monte Carlo approach allows us to retain the full polarisation information and to carry out… 
Monte Carlo simulations of radio emission from cosmic ray air showers
As a basis for the interpretation of data gathered by LOPES and other experiments, we have carried out Monte Carlo simulations of geosynchrotron radio emission from cosmic ray air showers. The
Modelling of radio emission from cosmic ray air showers
Modelling of radio emission from cosmic ray air showers Cosmic rays entering the Earth’s atmosphere induce extensive air showers consisting of up to billions of secondary particles. Among them, a
Radio emission from cosmic ray air showers - Coherent geosynchrotron radiation
Cosmic ray air showers have been known for over 30 years to emit pulsed radio emission in the frequency range from a few to a few hundred MHz, an effect that offers great opportunities for the study
Simulations of Radio Emission from Cosmic Ray Air Showers
Radio emission from cosmic ray air showers has the potential to become an additional, cost-effective observing technique for cosmic ray research, being largely complementary to the well-established
Radio pulses from cosmic ray air showers - Boosted Coulomb and Čerenkov fields
High-energy cosmic rays passing through the Earth's atmosphere produce extensive showers whose charges emit radio frequency pulses. Despite the low density of the Earth's atmosphere, this emission
Numerical Simulation of Radio Signal from Extended Air Showers
The burst of radio emission by the extensive air shower provides a promising alternative for detecting ultra-high energy cosmic rays.We have developed an independent numerical program to simulate

Coherent radio pulses from GEANT generated electromagnetic showers in ice
Radio Cherenkov radiation is arguably the most efficient mechanism for detecting showers from ultrahigh energy particles of 1 PeV and above. Showers occurring in Antarctic ice should be detectable at
Addendum to “Coherent radio pulses from GEANT generated electromagnetic showers in ice”
We reevaluate our published calculations of electromagnetic showers generated by GEANT 3.21 and the radio frequency pulses they produce in ice. We are prompted by a recent report showing that GEANT
