A search for pulsations from Geminga above 100 GeV with VERITAS
(American Astronomical Society, 2015-02-10)
We present the results of 71.6 hr of observations of the Geminga pulsar (PSR J0633+1746) with the VERITAS very-high-energy gamma-ray telescope array. Data taken with VERITAS between 2007 November and 2013 February were ...
Gamma-rays from the quasar PKS 1441+25: story of an escape
Outbursts from gamma-ray quasars provide insights on the relativistic jets of active galactic nuclei and constraints on the diffuse radiation fields that fill the universe. The detection of significant emission above 100 ...
VERITAS observations of the BL Lac object PG 1553+113
(American Astronomical Society, 2015-01-20)
We present results from VERITAS observations of the BL Lac object PG 1553+113 spanning the years 2010, 2011, and 2012. The time-averaged spectrum, measured between 160 and 560 GeV, is well described by a power law with a ...
VERITAS detection of gamma-ray flaring activity from the BL LAC object 1ES 1727+502 during bright moonlight observations
(American Astronomical Society, 2015-08-01)
During moonlit nights, observations with ground-based Cherenkov telescopes at very high energies (VHEs, E > 100 GeV) are constrained since the photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in the telescope camera are extremely sensitive ...
Exceptionally bright TEV flares from the binary LS I+61 degrees 303
(IOP Publishing, 2016-01-20)
The TeV binary system LS I +61 degrees 303 is known for its regular, non-thermal emission pattern that traces the orbital period of the compact object in its 26.5 day orbit around its B0 Ve star companion. The system ...
FirstNuSTAR observations of MRK 501 within a radio to TeV multi-instrument campaign
(IOP Publishing, 2015-10-10)
We report on simultaneous broadband observations of the TeV-emitting blazar Markarian 501 between 2013 April 1 and August 10, including the first detailed characterization of the synchrotron peak with Swift and NuSTAR. During ...
