Investigation of the EAS Neutron Component with the PRISMA-32 Array
Data on the EAS neutron component obtained using the PRISMA-32 array are presented. Secondary neutrons are first moderated and then detected by specialized scintillation electron–neutron detectors (en-detectors) within 20 ms of the arrival of the shower front. The PRISMA-32 array comprises 32 en-detectors and has been operated in the continuous data acquisition mode for more than five years.
This study was conducted at the unique scientific facility “Experimental Complex NEVOD” and supported by grant MK-7597.2016.2 from the President of the Russian Federation for state support of young Russian candidates of sciences.
