The Air Microwave Yield (AMY) project aims to measure the emission in the GHz regime from test-beam induced air-shower. The experiment is using the Beam Test Facility (BTF) of the Frascati INFN National Laboratories in Italy.

Abstract

The Air Microwave Yield (AMY) project aims to measure the emission in the GHz regime from test-beam induced air-shower. The experiment is using the Beam Test Facility (BTF) of the Frascati INFN National Laboratories in Italy. The final purpose is to characterize a process to be used in a next generation of ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) detectors. We describe the experimental apparatus and the first test performed in November 2011.
