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 ...
The most powerful flaring activity from the NLSyl PMN J0948+0022
(Oxford University Press, 2015-01-21)
We report on multifrequency observations performed during 2012 December-2013 August of the first narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxy detected in gamma-rays, PMN J0948+0022 (z = 0.5846). A y -ray flare was observed by the Large ...
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 ...
Unprecedented study of the broadband emission of Mrk 421 during flaring activity in March 2010
(EDP Sciences, 2015-05-27)
Context. Because of its proximity, Mrk 421 is one of the best sources on which to study the nature of BL Lac objects. Its proximity allows us to characterize its broadband spectral energy distribution (SED). Aims. The ...
The 2009 multiwavelength campaign on Mrk 421: variability and correlation studies
(EDP Sciences, 2015-04-17)
Aims. We perform an extensive characterization of the broadband emission of Mrk 421, as well as its temporal evolution, during the non-flaring (low) state. The high brightness and nearby location (z = 0.031) of Mrk 421 ...
