Emission of Radio Waves in Particle Showers: Validation of microscopic simulations with the SLAC T-510 experiment and their potential in the future Square Kilometre Array

Zilles, Anne

Abstract:
To validate microscopic simulations used for the prediction of radio emission from particle showers, the SLAC T-510 experiment was performed. The details of the microscopic Geant4 simulation and a comparison of its results to measured data are presented. In addition, an initial simulation study for SKA-low is performed to investigate its reconstruction potential for the depth of the shower maximum by the comparison of simulated two-dimensional lateral distribution functions to measured data.
