Dr Gavin Rowell summarises his paper on the Tunka-HISCORE telescope
Tunka-HiSCORE – A new array for multi-TeV γ – ray astronomy and cosmic-ray physics – Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A
This work describes the new Tunka-HiSCORE telescope to open up the gamma-ray sky in the >10 TeV energy range (or 10 trillion times more enegetic than optical light). The telescope will test the feasibility of fast-timing within a ground array of wide-angle detectors. The array will potentially allow us to detect the highest energy gamma-rays (or light) ever detected, paving the way to understand extreme particle acceleration processes in our galaxy.
