""The ARGO-YBJ experiment is in stable data taking since November 2007 at the YangBaJing Cosmic Ray. Laboratory (Tibet, P.R.China, 4300 m a.s.l.). It exploits a full coverage and high altitude approach to the. small air showers detection. The detector is made of a single layer of RPCs operated in streamer mode, fully. instrumenting a central carpet of about 5700 m2, then a guard ring extends the partially instrumented area to. about 11,000 m2. The large field of view (∼ 2 sr) and the high duty cycle (≥ 85%) allow a continuous monitoring. of the sky in the declination band from -10. ◦. to 70. ◦. ; the detector operates with an energy threshold of a few. hundred GeV. Recent achieved results will be reported""
