Systematic uncertainty in the analysis of the TA fluorescence detector from fluorescence yield models
August 17, 2023
Ultra-high energy cosmic rays have been observed by various experiments such as Telescope Array (TA) and the Pierre Auger Observatory (Auger). There are differences in the energy spectra measured by TA and Auger. One reason for this difference is systematic uncertainty in the energy determination. The fluorescence yield model, which consists of fluorescence emission efficiencies and spectra, is one of the most significant components of this systematic uncertainty. Fluorescence emission efficiencies and spectra have been measured in various experiments, and different measurements are currently used to determine the energy of the TA and Auger experiments. In this study, we estimate the influence of the fluorescence yield model on the systematic uncertainty in the energy determination of the TA fluorescence detector.
