Optical Properties and Calibration of the Pierre Auger Fluorescence Detector

Tománková, Lenka

This thesis focuses on the calibration and optical properties of the Fluorescence Detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory. A novel procedure for the study of telescope characteristics using an airborne light source is presented. Measurement results with respect to the absolute calibration and point spread function of the telescopes are reported, and the effect on reconstructed air shower observables is discussed.
