Disentangling the air shower components using scintillator and water Cherenkov detectors
Institute for Nuclear Physics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
We consider a ground array of scintillation and water Cherenkov detectors with the purpose of determining the muon content of air showers. The different response characteristics of these two types of detectors to the components of the air shower provide a way to infer their relative contributions. We use a detailed simulation to estimate the impact of parameters, such as scintillation detector size, in the determination of the size of the muon component.
