Measurements of quasi-trapped electron and positron fluxes with PAMELA
2009 (English)In: Journal of Geophysical Research, ISSN 0148-0227, Vol. 114, A12218- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper presents precise measurements of the differential energy spectra of quasi-trapped secondary electrons and positrons and their ratio between 80 MeV and 10 GeV in the near-equatorial region (altitudes between 350 km and 600 km). Latitudinal dependences of the spectra are analyzed in detail. The results were obtained from July until November 2006 onboard the Resurs-DK satellite by the PAMELA spectrometer, a general purpose cosmic ray detector system built around a permanent magnet spectrometer and a silicon-tungsten calorimeter.
