The JEM-EUSO Instruments

Abstract : JEM-EUSO mission with a large and wide-angle telescope to be mounted on the International Space Station has been planned to open up "particle astronomy" through the investigation of extreme-energy cosmic rays by detecting fluorescence and Cherenkov photons generated by air showers in the earth's atmosphere. The JEM-EUSO telescope consists of 3 light-weight optical Fresnel lenses with a diameter of about 2.5m, 300k channels of MAPMTs, front-end readout electronics, trigger electronics, and system electronics. An infrared camera and a LIDAR system will be also used to monitor the earth's atmosphere. Status of the JEM-EUSO instruments will be reported.
