Experimental Characterization of Atmospheric Radiation Environment with Stratospheric Balloon

Abstract : We report a stratospheric flight with a CNES balloon for which we developed a silicon detector in order to obtain data on the atmospheric radiation environment. The number of detected protons is shown to be directly correlated with the altitude. Simulations with the MC-ORACLE code, which uses pre-calculated fluxes with QARM, are in good agreement with our experimental results.
