Since 1996, a hybrid experiment consisting of the emulsion chamber and burs
t detector array and the Tibet-II air-shower array has been operated at Yan
gbajing (4300 m above sea level, 606 g/cm(2)) in Tibet. This experiment can
detect air-shower cores, called bunt events. accompanied by air showers in
excess of about 100 TeV. We observed about 4300 burst events accompanied b
y air showers during 690 days of operation and selected 820 proton-induced
events with its primary energy above 200 TeV using a neural network method.
Using this data set, we obtained the energy spectrum of primary protons in
the energy range from 200 to 1000 TeV. The differential energy spectrum ob
tained in this energy region can be fitted by a power law with the index of
- 2.97 +/- 0.06, which is steeper than that obtained by direct measurement
s at lower energies. We also obtained the energy spectrum of helium nuclei
at particle energies around 1000 TeV.
