Abstract: The IceCube experiment at South Pole consists of two detector components -the IceTop air shower array on the surface and the neutrino telescope at depthsfrom 1450 m to 2450 m below. Currently, 26 IceTop stations and 22 InIce stringsare deployed. With the present size of the IceTop array, it is possible tomeasure cosmic rays with energies ranging from 0.5 to 100 PeV. Coincidentevents between the IceTop and the InIce detector provide useful cross-checks ofthe detector performance and furthermore make it possible to study thecosmic-ray composition. This paper gives an overview on the current status ofIceTop.
