Radio measurements of the energy and the depth of the shower maximum of cosmic-ray air showers by Tunka-Rex

Tunka-REX Collaboration; Bezyazeekov, P.A.; Budnev, N.M.; Gress, O.A.; Haungs, A.; Hiller, R.; Huege, T.; Kazarina, Y.; Kleifges, M.; Konstantinov, E.N.; Korosteleva, E.E.; Kostunin, D.; Krömer, O.; Kuzmichev, L.A.; Lubsandorzhiev, N.; Mirgazov, R.R.; Monkhoev, R.; Pakhorukov, A.; Pankov, L.; Prosin, V.V.; Rubtsov, G.I.; ... mehr

Abstract:
We reconstructed the energy and the position of the shower maximum of air showers with energies E & 100PeV applying a method using radio measurements performed with Tunka-Rex. An event-to-event comparison to air-Cherenkov measurements of the same air showers with the Tunka-133 photomultiplier array confirms that the radio reconstruction works reliably. The Tunka-Rex reconstruction methods and absolute scales have been tuned on CoREAS simulations and yield energy and Xmax values consistent with the Tunka-133 measurements. The results of two independent measurement s ... mehr
