      New particles; hardons in extensive air showers

    • Abstract


      A large multiplate cloud chamber with fast timing scintillators inside is being operated with the extensive air shower array at Ootacamund to further elucidate the time structure of high energy hardons in air showers. The major interest in the present investigation is to understand the nature of the large delay (>20 ns) high energy (>40 GeV) events that appeared as strong cndidates for heavy mass particles in an earlier experiment carried out with a total absorption spectrometer. Two events observed during one year’s operation of the experiment are discussed.
