The ARGO-YBJ detector is an Extensive Air Shower (EAS) array located in Tibet (P.R. China) at 4300 m a.s.l., performing a continuos sky observation by shower reconstruction with an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV.

Abstract

The ARGO-YBJ detector is an Extensive Air Shower (EAS) array located in Tibet (P.R. China) at 4300 m a.s.l., performing a continuos sky observation by shower reconstruction with an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV. To lower this threshold to E~1GeV the detector has been designed to work in scaler mode, i.e. recording the counting rate of each module of the detector at fixed time intervals. At these energies, signals due to local (e.g. solar events) and cosmological (e.g. Gamma Ray Bursts, GRBs) phenomena are expected as a significant enhancement of the counting rate over the background. Results of the search for the GRBs in coincidence with satellite detections are presented.
