Description

The Pierre Auger Observatory has a significant sensitivity to search for ultra-high energy photons using data from the ground detector alone or in hybrid mode. Recent upper limits on the photon flux are already below the percent-level with regard to the total flux. The current status and details of the analysis methods are presented.
