The science case for the AugerPrime Radio Detector — •Tim Huege for the Pierre Auger collaboration — Karlsruher Institut für Technologie — Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Within the AugerPrime upgrade, the Pierre Auger Observatory is currently being equipped with additional detectors and improved readout electronics. In the course of this upgrade, each of the 1660 Water-Cherenkov surface detectors will also be equipped with an integrated radio antenna for measurements in the 30-80 MHz band. These radio antennas will allow us to measure the electromagnetic component of inclined air showers with zenith angles above 65°. Simultaneous measurement of the muon content of inclined air showers by the Water-Cherenkov Detectors then provides mass-composition information complementary to the combined measurements with Water-Cherenkov and Scintillation detectors used at zenith angles below 60°. In this talk, we will discuss the expected performance and scientific potential of this upcoming Radio Detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory.
