The LOPES experiment (LOfar Prototype Station) has been built at the KASCADE-Grande experiment in order to test the LOFAR (LOw Frequency ARray) technology and demonstrate its capability for radio measurements in Extensive Air Showers (FAS). After the first positive results in the framework of the KASCADE-Grande experiment we developed the next generation of antennas, electronics, and trigger.

Abstract

The LOPES experiment (LOfar Prototype Station) has been built at the KASCADE-Grande experiment in order to test the LOFAR (LOw Frequency ARray) technology and demonstrate its capability for radio measurements in Extensive Air Showers (FAS). After the first positive results in the framework of the KASCADE-Grande experiment we developed the next generation of antennas, electronics, and trigger. The main new features are easy calibration of antennas with precise detection of polarization, and good capability of self-triggering. The results from this new design are under test in Karlsruhe. Furthermore the background situation was measured and analyzed.
