Digital Processing of Cherenkov Light Signals from Extensive Air Showers of Cosmic Rays
2019 July 22
The operation of a wide ﬁeld-of-view Cherenkov telescope is described. The detection of extensive air showers (EAS) of cosmic rays (CR) is based upon the coincidence with signals from the Yakutsk array. The data acquisition system of the telescope yields signals connected with EAS development parameters: presumably, shower age and position of shower maximum in the atmosphere. Here we describe the application of digital signal processing in order to reconstruct Cherenkov radiation signals induced by CR showers.
