4. Investigation of extensive air shower properties with the CODALEMA experiment : tackling the challenges of the next generation cosmic ray observatory.
Dr lilian martin (subatech)
Our knowledge on ultra-high energy cosmic rays and their underlying sources and acceleration mechanisms is steadily improving thanks to the large observatories nowadays in operation. However the need for a next generation instrument is emerging from their experimental limitations and the scientific questions currently out of reach within a reasonable time line. Within these scope, the main...
Dr Satyendra Thoudam (Department of Astrophysics/IMAPP, Radboud University Nijmegen, 6500 GL Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
LOFAR (the LOw Frequency ARray) is a new kind of radio telescope built in the Netherlands and its neighboring countries for astronomical observations in the low frequency range of ~ 10-240 MHz. Unlike traditional radio telescopes which consist of steerable big parabolic dishes, LOFAR uses simple dipole antennas which remain static on the ground. Using digital signal processing, LOFAR can point...
Dr Kwang-Chang Lai (Chang Gung University)
We propose a new method to identify flavors of ultra high energy cosmic neutrinos. Energy loss of leptons in matter provides important informations for the detection of neutrinos originated from high energy astrophysical sources. 50 years ago, Askaryan proposed to detect Cherenkov signals by radio wave from the negative charge excess of particle showers. The theory of Cherenkov pulses with...
Dr Irene Di Palma (Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute))
With the recent development of experimental techniques that have opened new windows of observation of the cosmic radiation in all its components, multi-messenger astronomy is entering an exciting era. Many astrophysical sources and cataclysmic cosmic events with burst activity can be plausible sources of concomitant gravitational waves (GWs) and high-energy neutrinos (HENs). Such messengers...
Francesco Simeone (ROMA1)
In recent years the astro-particle community is involved in the realization of experimental apparatuses for the detection of high energy neutrinos originated in cosmic sources or produced in the interaction of Cosmic Rays with the Cosmic Microwave Background. For neutrino energies in the TeV-PeV range, the underwater optical Cherenkov technique is considered optimal. For higher energies, three...
