More than two years of fluorescence detector data collected in coincidence with at least one station of the surface detector array (“hybrid data”) are used to measure the flux and energy spectrum of cosmic rays above about 10**18 eV. The hybrid measurement extends towards lower energies the spectrum measured with the surface detector data only, and provides a cross-check with an independent data set. The determination of the fluorescence detector aperture and of its live-time, which is the major aspect of this measurement, is illustrated in detail. Our current estimate of the corresponding systematic uncertainties are given.

Abstract

More than two years of fluorescence detector data collected in coincidence with at least one station of the surface detector array (“hybrid data”) are used to measure the flux and energy spectrum of cosmic rays above about 10**18 eV. The hybrid measurement extends towards lower energies the spectrum measured with the surface detector data only, and provides a cross-check with an independent data set. The determination of the fluorescence detector aperture and of its live-time, which is the major aspect of this measurement, is illustrated in detail. Our current estimate of the corresponding systematic uncertainties are given.
