Latest results of the CODALEMA experiment: cosmic rays radio detection in a self trigger mode

Abstract : Dedicated to the measurement of the radio transients coming from the extensive air showers (EAS), the CODALEMA experiment was started in 2001 at the Nançay Observatory, in France. Benefiting of an easy deployment and a low cost compared with Cherenkov detectors or fluorescence telescopes, this alternative method appears to be an interesting tool for the understanding of the physics of high energy cosmic rays observed through EAS. A new configuration of the CODALEMA experiment was implemented in 2011 based on a standalone detection, which will be essential for the next generation of giant detector array. One of the major challenges of this promising detection mode is the control (identification and rejection) of the fluctuating and transient noise events in an inhabited area and the knowledge of the shower radio-detection capabilities such as the effective efficiency and the data purity. Some results concerning this new setup of the experiment will be discussed in this paper.
