摘要：The rapidly decreasing electron flux with the power index of -3.3 makes it difficult to measure directly with instruments on board balloons and satellites at energies higher than about 1 TeV. However, the large-area and wide-field EAS arrays could be used to extend cosmic-ray (CR) electrons spectrum (e+ +e-, in the following electrons refer to both electrons and positrons) measurements up to several tens of TeV or more. The newly upgraded Tibet hybrid AS experiment (Tibet-III+MD) may become one of the world's most sensitive observatories of gamma rays or maybe electrons above -10 TeV due to its high separation ability of γ-rays and hadrons. In this paper, using a full Monte Carlo simulation, we examine its ability for measuring CR electrons in the high galactic latitude area above -10 TeV.
