Description

Detection of (ultra) high energy cosmic rays with the use of radio frequency emission in extensive air showers has been proven as complimentary to existing ground array detection techniques. Great progress has been booked in the theoretical understanding of the emission processes and in their Monte Carlo modelling. These have led to experimental results, notably also at the Auger Engineering Radio Array, on energy, angular and mass composition resolution of the primary cosmic rays. Recent results will be shown. The measured resolutions turn out to be competitive with existing techniques and they have independent uncertainties. Implications for cross calibration with existing techniques and for future large scale application of radio detection of ultra high energy cosmic rays will be discussed.
