Extensive air showers, initiated in the Earth’s atmosphere by high-energy cosmic rays, emit pulsed radio signals with a typical duration of tens of nanoseconds.
The Pierre Auger Collaboration finds an indication that some galaxies may be better partners of cosmic rays at the highest energies than others.
Inferences on Mass Composition and Tests of Hadronic Interactions from 0.3 to 100 EeV using the water-Cherenkov Detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory
We present a new method for probing the hadronic interaction models at ultra-high energy and extracting details about mass composition.
Calibration of the Logarithmic-Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA) Radio Stations at the Pierre Auger Observatory using an Octocopter
In a recent calibration campaign at the Pierre Auger Observatory, the directional and frequency characteristics of the radio stations equipped with logarithmic periodic dipole antennas (LPDAs) have been determined using a remotely piloted octocopter.
To estimate the energy of any cosmic ray event detected by the Pierre Auger Observatory, the detectors have to be calibrated.
The Pierre Auger, ANTARES, and IceCube Observatories team up for a search of neutrino emission from the binary neutron star merger GW170817
On August 17, 2017 the LIGO and Virgo collaboration measured a gravitational wave originating from a binary neutron star merger.
