Abstract

The high resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) detector in Dugway, Utah, is an air fluorescence detector designed for the measurement of the energy and arrival direction of cosmic ray particles with energy E > 1018 eV. HiRes monitors the night sky for fluorescence light from air shower cascades induced by cosmic ray primaries. The light is collected by mirrors and projected onto arrays of photomultiplier tubes that provide an image of the air shower.
