Abstract

The Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass (CREAM) is a balloon-borne experiment for measuring high energy cosmic rays with energy up to 1015 eV. CREAM incorporates a sampling tungsten/scintillating-fiber calorimeter for energy measurements and a dual-layer Silicon Charge Detector (SCD) and Timing-based Charge Detector (TCD) to measure the charge of incident particles. CREAM has had two successful flights in 2004/5 and 2005/6, with a combined duration of 70 days of data. Preliminary results on the relative abundances of heavy ions measured by the SCD will be presented.
