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
Air Shower Detection by Arrays of Radio Antennas
Antenna arrays are beginning to make important contributions to high energy astroparticle physics supported by recent progress in the radio technique for air showers. This article provides an update
Improved analysis of air shower radio emission with the LOPES experiment
Galactic and Extragalactic objects produce highly energetic particles. Entering the Earth’s atmosphere, these cosmic ray particles generate extensive air showers. During the evolution of the shower
Status of air-shower measurements with sparse radio arrays
Radio antennas will be a valuable add-on for any air shower array targeting the energy range above 100 PeV, and the combination of radio and muon measurements is expected to increase the accuracy of the mass composition, and this around-the-clock recording is not limited to clear nights as are the light-detection methods.
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
