Description

The High Resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) experiment studied ultrahigh energy cosmic rays using the fluorescence technique. HiRes had two fluorescence sites located atop desert mountains in west-central Utah, and ran from 1997-2006. Results from the complete HiRes data set will be presented, on the spectrum, composition, and anisotropy of cosmic rays.
