Abstract

The ARGO-YBJ experiment detects extensive air showers in a wide energy range by means of afull-coverage detector which is in stable data taking in its full configuration since November 2007 at the YBJ International Cosmic Ray Observatory (4300 m a.s.l., Tibet, People’s Republic of China). In thispaper the measurement of the light-component spectrum of primary cosmic rays in the energy region (5-200 TeV) is reported. The method exploited to analyze the experimental data is based on a Bayesian procedure. The measured intensities of the light component are consistent with the recent CREAM results and higher than that obtained adding the proton and helium spectra reported by the RUNJOB experiment.
