Description

Results on EAS study with a novel type of detector array PRISMA-32 sensitive to accompanying EAS thermal neutron is presented. The array is running in MEPhI (Moscow, Russia) since February, 2012. Comparison with a full-scale Monte Carlo simulation of the experiment using GEANT4 and CORSIKA codes is also shown. It is demonstrated that absolute number of recorded thermal neutrons is in a good agreement with expectations and that the EAS size spectrum in thermal neutrons within experimental errors can be well fitted with a pure power law function.
