Abstract [en]

The LOFAR Radboud Air Shower Array (LORA) consists of 20 plastic scintillators and is situated at the core of the LOFAR radio telescope. LORA detects particles from extensive air showers and triggers the read-out of the LOFAR antennas. The dense LOFAR antenna spacing allows for detailed sampling of the radio emission generated in extensive air showers, which yields high precision reconstruction of cosmic ray properties and information about the shower development. We discuss the proposed expansion of LORA, including the addition of scintillator units and the implementation of triggering algorithms that will probe more details of the radio emission and detect lower energy showers without introducing a composition bias, which is important for studying the origin of cosmic rays.
