Aims. We want to understand the emission mechanism of radio emission from air showers to determine the origin of high-energy cosmic rays. Therefore, we study the geometry of the air shower radio emission measured with LOPES and search for systematic effects between the direction determined on the radio signal and the direction provided by the particle detector array KASCADE. Methods. We produce 4D radio images on time-scales of nanoseconds using digital beam-forming. Each pixel of the image is...[Show more]
