Detection of Microwave Emission of Extensive Air Showers with the CROME Experiment

Werner, Felix

This thesis reports on the design, calibration, and first data analysis of the CROME (Cosmic-Ray Observation via Microwave Emission) experiment searching for microwave radio emission from extensive air showers. The observations are consistent with a mainly forward-directed and polarised emission process in the GHz frequency range. The measurements show that microwave radiation offers a new means of studying air showers at energies above ~10^17 eV.
