The ultracryogenic resonant gravitational wave antenna NAUTILUS now operating at Frascati INFN National Laboratory has been provided with a cosmic-ray veto system consisting of layers of streamer tubes, The experimental setup and performance of the system are shown. Preliminary results on the data collected during the calibration operations of the antenna are also presented together with the expected number of events from the interactions of high-energy hadrons and muons and multihadron showers with the gravitational antenna.

Abstract

The ultracryogenic resonant gravitational wave antenna NAUTILUS now operating at Frascati INFN National Laboratory has been provided with a cosmic-ray veto system consisting of layers of streamer tubes, The experimental setup and performance of the system are shown. Preliminary results on the data collected during the calibration operations of the antenna are also presented together with the expected number of events from the interactions of high-energy hadrons and muons and multihadron showers with the gravitational antenna.
