Abstract: The TAx4 experiment plans to realize an Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) detection area four times larger than that of the TA experiment. TAx4 will include five hundreds new surface detectors (SD) spaced at 2.08 km and two new fluorescence detectors (FD), which provides hybrid observation of UHECRs. We deployed 257 SDs in 2019 and completed building 2 FD stations in 2020, all operating stably. The data acquisition of the SDs is made via six communication towers, and inter-tower triggers have been recently implemented.

Current status and prospects of surface detector of the TAx4 experiment
E. Kido, Jon Paul Lundquist, 2022, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: Telescope Array (TA) is the largest ultrahigh energy cosmic-ray (UHECR) observatory in the Northern Hemisphere. A surface detector (SD) array covers approximately 700 km^2, and the SD array is surrounded by three fluorescence detector (FD) stations. TA has found evidence for a cluster of cosmic rays with energies greater than 57 EeV from the TA SD data. In order to confirm this evidence with more data, we started the TAx4 experiment which expands the detection area using new SDs and FDs. We started construction of new SDs which are arranged in a square grid with 2.08 km spacing at the north east and south east of the TA SD array. More than half of the new SDs are already deployed and running. We present the current status of the TAx4 SD, trigger efficiency and exposure prospects for the highest energy part of the cosmic ray spectrum.
