Abstract

The ARGO-YBJ experiment is mainly devoted to search for astronomical gamma sources. The arrival direction of air showers is reconstructed thanks to the times measured by the pixels of the detector. Therefore, the timing calibratin of the detector pixels is crucial in ordere to get the best angular resolution abd pointing accuracy. Because of the large number of pixels a hardware timing calibration is practically impossible. Therefore, an off-line software calibration. Here, the details of the procedure and the results are presented.
