Galactic halo size in the light of recent AMS-02 data

Context. The vertical diffusive halo size of the Galaxy, L, is a key parameter for dark matter indirect searches. It can be better determined thanks to recent AMS-02 data. Aims. We set constraints on

DISCREPANT HARDENING OBSERVED IN COSMIC-RAY ELEMENTAL SPECTRA

The balloon-borne Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass experiment launched five times from Antarctica has achieved a cumulative flight duration of about 156 days above 99.5% of the atmosphere. The

ENERGY SPECTRA OF COSMIC-RAY NUCLEI AT HIGH ENERGIES

We present new measurements of the energy spectra of cosmic-ray (CR) nuclei from the second flight of the balloon-borne experiment Cosmic-Ray Energetics And Mass (CREAM). The instrument included

Primary Cosmic Ray Proton Flux Measured by AMS-02

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is a high energy particle detector designed to study origin and nature of cosmic rays up to a few TV from space. It was installed on the International Space

PAMELA Measurements of Cosmic-Ray Proton and Helium Spectra

PAMELA data challenge the current paradigm of cosmic-ray acceleration in supernova remnants followed by diffusive propagation in the Galaxy and find that the spectral shapes of these two species are different and cannot be described well by a single power law.

COSMIC-RAY PROTON AND HELIUM SPECTRA FROM THE FIRST CREAM FLIGHT

Cosmic-ray proton and helium spectra have been measured with the balloon-borne Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass experiment flown for 42 days in Antarctica in the 2004–2005 austral summer season.

Perspective on the Cosmic-ray Electron Spectrum above TeV

The AMS-02 has measured the cosmic-ray electron (plus positron) spectrum up to ∼TeV with unprecedented precision. The spectrum can be well described by a power law without any obvious features above

First result from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station: precision measurement of the positron fraction in primary cosmic rays of 0.5-350 GeV.

The very accurate data show that the positron fraction is steadily increasing from 10 to ∼ 250  GeV, but, from 20 to 250 GeV, the slope decreases by an order of magnitude, showing the existence of new physical phenomena.

Measurement of the cosmic ray e+ +e- spectrum from 20 GeV to 1 TeV with the Fermi Large Area Telescope.

This work has developed an efficient electron detection strategy which provides sufficient background rejection for measurement of the steeply falling electron spectrum up to 1 TeV and shows that the electron spectrum falls with energy as E-3.0 and does not exhibit prominent spectral features.

The All-Particle Spectrum of Primary Cosmic Rays in the Wide Energy Range from 1014 to 1017 eV Observed with the Tibet-III Air-Shower Array

We present an updated all-particle energy spectrum of primary cosmic rays in a wide range from 1014 to 1017 eV using 5.5 × 107 events collected from 2000 November through 2004 October by the
