Measurements of Xmax above 10[sup]17 eV with the fluorescence detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract: For the first time the Pierre Auger Collaboration presents〈Xmax〉and σ(Xmax) measurements covering nearly three decades of energy. In this analysis we include new Xmax data obtained with the High Elevation Auger Telescopes (HEAT) enhancement. The HEAT telescopes cover a field of view ranging from 30◦ to 60◦ of elevation and are located next to one of the standard fluorescence detector sites (Coihueco). The combination of the HEAT and Coihueco telescopes covers a field of view from ∼2◦ up to ∼60◦ of elevation. Thus, the combination can sample the longitudinal profile of nearby lower energy showers, allowing us to extend the energy range down to 10[sup]17 eV.

Composition at the “ankle” measured by the Pierre Auger Observatory: pure or mixed?
Marko Zavrtanik, Danilo Zavrtanik, Lili Yang, Serguei Vorobiov, Darko Veberič, Marta Trini, Samo Stanič, Ahmed Saleh, Gašper Kukec Mezek, Andrej Filipčič, Alexey Yushkov, 2015, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: We report for the first time on the measurement of the correlation between the depth of shower maximum and the signal in water-Cherenkov stations for events reconstructed by both the fluorescence and the surface detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory. Such a correlated measurement is a unique feature of a hybrid air-shower observatory and allows us to determine the purity of the cosmic-ray composition. The observed correlation in the energy range around the “ankle” lg(E/eV) = 18.5−19.0 differs significantly from the expectations for pure beams, indicating that the primary composition in this range is mixed, unless the hadronic interactions at these energies behave very differently than in conventional, LHC-tuned event generators.

Report of the Working Group on the Composition of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays
Marko Zavrtanik, Danilo Zavrtanik, Lili Yang, Serguei Vorobiov, Darko Veberič, Marta Trini, Samo Stanič, Ahmed Saleh, Gašper Kukec Mezek, Andrej Filipčič, Michael Unger, 2015, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The atmospheric depth, Xmax, at which the particle number of an air shower reaches its maximum is a good indicator for the mass of the primary particle. We present a comparison of the energy evolution of the mean of Xmax as measured by the Telescope Array and c Collaborations. After accounting for the different resolutions, acceptances and analysis strategies of the two experiments, the two results are found to be in good agreement within systematic uncertainties.
