Radio detection of extensive air showers
Dr. Washington Rodrigues de Carvalho Jr. – Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, España
We make an overview of radio detection of extensive air showers. We’ll discuss the main emission mechanisms and characteristics of the emission and discuss how it can be used to estimate the energy and composition of the primary particle. We’ll also discuss some experimental results from a wide variety of radio detection experiments.
