The direct observation of high-energy cosmic rays, up to the PeV energy region, will increasingly rely on highly performing calorimeters, and the physics performance will be primarily determined by their geometrical acceptance and energy resolution. Thus, it is extremely important to optimize their geometrical design, granularity and absorption depth, with respect to the total mass of the apparatus, which is amongst the most important constraints for a space mission. CaloCube is an homogeneous…

TLDR
The observed spectrum is consistent with AMS-02 but extends to nearly an order of magnitude higher energy, showing a very smooth transition of the power-law spectral index, thereby confirming the existence of spectral hardening and providing evidence of a deviation from a single power law by more than 3σ.
