Abstract [en]

The satellite-borne PAMELA experiment has been continuously collecting data since 15th June 2006, when it was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome to detect the charged component of cosmic rays over a wide energy range and with an unprecedented statistics. The apparatus design is particularly suited for particle and antiparticle identification. The satellite quasi-polar orbit, with an inclination of 70 degrees, allows particles to be measure down to 100 MeV/n. This makes the instrument suited for the investigation of phenomena related to galactic cosmic ray solar modulation in the inner heliosphere. Data for oppositely charged particles were collected from 2006 to 2009, during the A< 0 solar minimum of solar cycle 23. The time and rigidity dependence of galactic cosmic ray electron and positron fluxes were measured. These fluxes provide important information for the study of charge dependent solar modulation effects.
