Microwave emission from extensive air showers as seen by CROME
Presented by Radomir SMIDA on 15 Feb 2012 from 18:10 to 18:25
A measurement of extensive air showers in the microwave range has been considered as a possible successor to current measurement techniques. The CROME (Cosmic Ray Observation via Microwave Emission) experiment consisting of several parabolic antennas measures radiation from the atmosphere in coincidence with air showers detected by the KASCADE-Grande experiment. Nanosecond radio pulses are expected for vertical showers and thus, fast read-out electronics is used. Tens of KASCADE-Grande showers have crossed the field of view of our antennas after one year of data taking. A preliminary limit on microwave emission from air showers is presented.
