Study of Energy Measurement of Cosmic Ray Nuclei with LHAASO
July 22, 2021
The Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO) is a hybrid extensive air shower (EAS) array with an area of about 1 𝑘𝑚2 at an altitude of 4410 m a.s.l. in Sichuan province, China. It contains three sub-detectors: 1 𝑘𝑚2 array (KM2A) composed of 5195 electromagnetic particle detectors (ED) and muon detectors (MD); water Cerenkov detector array (WCDA) and 18 Wide Field-of-view Cerenkov Telescope Array (WFCTA). One of the main scientific goals is measuring the individual energy spectra of cosmic rays from ~30 TeV to a couple of EeV. The construction of the whole observatory will be completed by the end of 2021. In this paper, a new energy reconstruction method and result based on KM2A simulated nuclei events will be shown.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
