About the Journal :
Experimental and Theoretical NANOTECHNOLOGY (ETN) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed international journal published three issues a year. It includes specialized research papers, short communications, reviews and selected conference papers in special issues on the characterization, synthesis, processing, structure and properties of different principles and applications of NANOTECHNOLOGY; with focus on advantageous achievements and applications for the specialists in engineering, chemistry, physics and materials science.
ETN covers and publishes all aspects of fundamental and applied researches of experimental and theoretical nanoscale technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, nanofabrication, nanoprobes, spectroscopy, properties, biological systems, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxicology within the scope of the journal. ETN aims to acquire the recent and outstanding researches for the benefit of the human being.
In this work, the effects of the extensive air showers (EAS) were described by estimating the lateral distribution function (LDF) at very high energies of various cosmic ray particles. LDF was simulate for charged particles such as the electron andpositron pair production, gamma, muons and all charged particles at very high energies1016, 1018 and 1019eV.The simulation was performed using AIRES air shower simulator system version 2.6.0. The effect of primary particles, energies, thinning energy and zenith angle (θ) on the charged LDF particlesproduced in the EAS was taken into account.The comparison of the estimated LDF of the charged particles such as the electron and positron pair production and muons with the simulated results by Sciutto and experimental results byYakutsk EAS observatory gives good acceptance at 1019eVfor zenith angles 0̊ and 10̊.
