Paper Abstract

The aim of the AIRFLY (air fluorescence yield) project is to simulate and to measure the process of the fluorescence and Cherenkov emission produced by impact of cosmic rays on molecules of nitrogen in high level atmosphere. Several setups were designed to measure fluorescent and Cherenkov light. We report the chamber with controlled atmosphere to simulate conditions in various levels of the Earth atmosphere. The chamber was designed in the Institute of Physics of Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Czech Technical University and the Joint Laboratory of Optics of Palacky University and Institute of Physics of Academy of Sciences in Olomouc.
