Abstract:The Pierre Auger Observatory (PAO), the world’s largest cosmic ray detector combines a large surface detector (SD) with an air fluorescence detector (FD). It is designed to observe extensive air showers (EAS) of billions of secondary particles induced by the UHECRs in the earths’ atmosphere. The “hybrid” design (i.e., detected simultaneously by SD and FD) provides wealth of information about shower development and excellent event reconstruction. Together with observations of UHECRs, the Surface Detector (SD) of the PAO is sensitive to UHE neutrinos through the observation of deeply initiated inclined down-going showers produced by neutrino interactions in the atmosphere, which method has been well established. On the other hand, high-energy photons can also be discriminated from background of charged cosmic rays based on their characters of the shower front. In this talk, I will give a review on recent results from PAO and introduce the ultra-high energy multi-messenger studies from PAO.
