Radio detection of cosmic rays – achievements and future potential

Huege, Tim

Abstract (englisch):
When modern efforts for radio detection of cosmic rays started more than a decade ago, hopes were high but the true potential was unclear.
Since then, we have achieved a detailed understanding of the radio-emission physics and have consequently succeeded in developing sophisticated detection schemes and analysis approaches. In particular, we have demonstrated that the important air-shower parameters arrival direction, particle energy and depth of shower maximum can be reconstructed reliably from radio measurements, with a precision that is competitive with that of other detection techniques. In this talk I will review the achievements of the radio detection technique and discuss the potential for future application in existing and new experiments.
