Measurement of electromagnetic and TEV muon components of extensive air showers by eas-top and MACRO experiments


Journal Article

The simultaneous observation of the electromagnetic and TeV muon components of extensive air showers by the EAS-TOP and MACRO detectors, respectively, is described for a period of 100 days in 1990. The two detectors and their combined resolutions are briefly reviewed and muon multiplicity distributions for various detector configurations are presented. A first analysis of the physical parameters Nμ and Ne related to the study of the primary composition at Eν = 1014 - 1016 eV is also presented. © 1992.
