Radioastronomical measurement of ultrahigh-energy cosmic particle fluxes


East-Ukrainian National University, kvartal Molodezhnyi 20-A, Lugansk, 91034, Ukraine

The basic principles underlying the radio telescope measurement of ultrahigh-energy particle fluxes are reviewed. Experimental lunar regolith emission data are presented for the 1020 eV energy range. Some conclusions from theoretical work are discussed, as is the influence of a number of factors on the intensity of the radio pulse due to the cascade disk under the Moon’s surface.
