First results from the TUS orbital detector in the extensive air shower mode

TUS (Tracking Ultraviolet Set-up), the first orbital detector of extreme energy cosmic rays (EECRs), those with energies above 50 EeV, was launched into orbit on April 28, 2016, as a part of the Lomonosov satellite scientific payload. The main aim of the mission is to test a technique of registering fluorescent and Cherenkov radiation of extensive air showers generated by EECRs in the atmosphere with a space telescope. We present preliminary results of its operation in a mode dedicated to registering extensive air showers in the period from August 16, 2016, to November 4, 2016. No EECRs have been conclusively identified in the data yet, but the diversity of ultraviolet emission in the atmosphere was found to be unexpectedly rich. We discuss typical examples of data obtained with TUS and their possible origin. The data is important for obtaining more accurate estimates of the nocturnal ultraviolet glow of the atmosphere, necessary for successful development of more advanced orbital EECR detectors including those of the KLYPVE (K-EUSO) and JEM-EUSO missions.

International symposium on Ultra-High-Energy Cosmic Rays, UHECR2018

12.10.2018

This UHECR workshop will cover recent results from UHECR observations and theoretical developments as well as future plans.  The symposium will focus on the highest energy cosmic rays as well as cosmic rays at lower energies above 1 PeV, and on multi-messenger approaches.
Review talks by invited speakers and contributions including posters will be presented by experimentalists and theorists in plenary sessions.

UHECR 2018 will take place in the heart of Paris, at “Chimie Paris Tech” Campus (formerly know as the "Ecole Nationale de Chimie Supérieure de Paris ").
