The AMY experiment: Microwave emission from air shower plasmas

Abstract : You The Air Microwave Yield (AMY) experiment investigate the molecular bremsstrahlung radiation emitted in the GHz frequency range from an electron beam induced air-shower. The measurements have been performed at the Beam Test Facility (BTF) of Frascati INFN National Laboratories with a 510MeV electron beam in a wide frequency range between 1 and 20GHz. We present the apparatus and the results of the tests performed.
