ALICE Cosmic Ray Detector

ALICE Cosmic Ray Detector

The ALICE underground cavern provides an ideal place for the detection of high energy atmospheric muons coming from cosmic ray showers. ACORDE detects cosmic ray showers by triggering the arrival of muons to the top of the ALICE magnet.

With ACORDE, ALICE has detected muon bundles with the highest multiplicity ever registered and has also measured very high energy primary cosmic rays.
