Title: Properties of ultraviolet light in extensive air showers
Author: Biral, ARP
Chinellato, JA
Abstract: We investigate some properties of Cherenkov light in the range 2000-2400 Angstrom, produced by 1-10 TeV extensive air showers. The attenuation of these photons in the atmosphere strongly changes the capabilities of a typical Cherenkov array, when compared with those that operate in the visible region. We simulate the development of air showers in the 1-10 TeV region, with a careful description of the attenuation of the Cherenkov photons in the atmosphere.
