  • Huang, M. A. and ISUAL collaboration( 200108 ).Study UV background by the ISUAL experiment, Proceedings of the 27th International Cosmic Ray Conference., Hamburg,, Germany.
  • The UV background is an important noise for space borne air-fluorescent experiments such as OWL. However, very little is known about the UV background. One of its possible sources is lightning. Some upper atmosphere lightning could emit strong UV light and be misidentified as an up-going neutrino signal. The ISUAL (Image of Sprite: Upper Atmosphere Lightning) experiment on ROCSAT 2 will make global surveys of lightning induced luminous phenomena from orbit. This experiment employs a six-channel spectrophotometer with two channels targeting at 337.1nm and 391.4nm, which are the UV signals used by air-fluorescent experiments. The ISUAL will measure the global distribution of upper atmosphere lightning and airglow. Such information could help experiments such as OWL to reduce background noise due to lightning.
