Poster 41: Christopher Clyne – Measuring Air Fluorescence Yield for Determining Energies of Cosmic Rays

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Dmitri Ivanov

As part of the sFLASH collaboration, I found the constant of proportionality known as Fluorescence Yield linking the amount of fluorescence light produced by high energy cosmic rays in the atmosphere to the primary particle energy of the cosmic rays. I used a FLUKA simulation and past experimental data to reach my result.
