ARGO-YBJ Experimental Hall
The detector consists of a single layer of RPCs (Resistive Plate Counters) covering an area of ~6700 m2 and providing a detailed space-time picture of the shower front.
ARGO-YBJ is devoted to a wide range of fundamental issues in Cosmic Rays and Astroparticle Physics, including in particular Gamma-Ray Astronomy and Gamma-Ray Bursts Physics.
The experiment has been approved and funded by INFN
(Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare).
