Abstract [en]

When a cosmic particle hits matter it produces radio emission via the Askaryan effect. This allows to use Earth's moon as detector for cosmic particles by searching for these ns-pulses with radio telescopes. This technique potentially increases the available collective area by several orders of magnitude compared to current experiments. The LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) is the largest radio telescope operating in the optimum frequency regime for corresponding searches. In this contribution, we report on the design and status of the implementation of the lunar detection mode at LOFAR. © Copyright owned by the author(s) under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0).
