kascade grande reconstruction
KASCADE-Grande reconstruction
  • Energy deposit of shower particles in scintillation detector
  • Additional contribution from the conversion of gamma component and hadrons
  • Lateral Energy Correction Function (LECF) gives average energy deposit per charged lepton
  • particle densities in detector
  • Fit of density distribution with Lateral Distribution Functions
  • shower core and first estimate of particle numbers Ne, (Nm)
  • arrival times to determine shower direction q, f
  • combined fit to obtain better results
  • derive muon number from KASCADE array muon detectors

fiducial area
Fiducial area
  • false reconstructed shower cores at border of Grande Array
  • definition of fiducial area 600·600m2
  • KASCADE Stations mostly between 275 – 625m
  • measure rm

Dr<11m, 11m<Dr<30m, Dr>30m
