Iron nucleus, 5 TeV
Simulation with CORSIKA 4.50 without any atmospheric extinction. Shower direction is vertical. The observation is assumed to be at a height of 2200 m. For efficiency reasons, Cherenkov photons were calculated in bunches of up to 10. In the lateral distribution white pixels correspond to 80 or more photons per m2 in the wavelength range 300-450 nm. In the telescope images white corresponds to 30 or more photons per 0.1*0.1 degree2 for a telescope area of 100 m2.
If you are interested in the particles arriving at the ground in such an air shower, then look at the following plot combining the Cherenkov light lateral distribution and the impact points of all electrons/positrons, muons and protons at an altitude of 2200 m.
