First data from the pre-production stations of the AugerPrime Radio Detector* — •Julian Rautenberg for the Pierre Auger collaboration — Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Gaußstr. 20, 42119 Wuppertal, Germany
The success of the radio detection of inclined air showers with the Auger Engineering Radio Array at the Pierre Auger Observatory proved the feasibility of radio detection at the 1.5 km spacing of the Surface Detector (SD). A first design of a possible radio extension to the SD stations was deployed in May 2019 on one station at the Observatory. With this station, the first successful integration of radio measurements into data acquisition was shown. Consequently, a full design of the antenna with its mounting was completed. In parallel, the front-end board, which samples the amplitudes and feeds them into the digital electronics of the station, was developed. In November 2019, the first 10 antennas were deployed on SD stations. For seven of these stations, the upgraded electronics were available, allowing the installation of the radio front-end boards. We present the first data from these SD stations which were extended with the pre-production version of the radio detectors.
