    • VERITAS Observations of the gamma-Ray Binary LS I +61 303 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2008)
      LS I +61 303 is one of only a few high-mass X-ray binaries currently detected at high significance in very high energy gamma-rays. The system was observed over several orbital cycles (between September 2006 and February ...
    • VERITAS Observations of the TeV Binary LS I +61 303 During 2008-2010 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2011)
      We present the results of observations of the TeV binary LS I +61 303 with the VERITAS telescope array between 2008 and 2010, at energies above 300 GeV. In the past, both ground-based gamma-ray telescopes VERITAS and MAGIC ...
    • VERITAS Observations of the Unusual Extragalactic Transient Swift J164449.3+573451 

      Gillanders, Gary (2011)
      We report on very-high-energy ($>$100 GeV) gamma-ray observations of Swift J164449.3+573451, an unusual transient object first detected by the {\it Swift} Observatory and later detected by multiple radio, optical and ...
    • VERITAS Upper Limit on the VHE Emission from the Radio Galaxy NGC 1275 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2009)
      The recent detection by the Fermi gamma-ray space telescope of high-energy gamma-rays from the radio galaxy NGC 1275 makes the observation of the very high energy (VHE: E > 100 GeV) part of its broadband spectrum ...
    • VERITAS: Status and Highlights 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2011)
      The VERITAS telescope array has been operating smoothly since 2007, and has detected gamma-ray emission above 100 GeV from 40 astrophysical sources. These include blazars, pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants, gamma-ray ...
    • A Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Spectrum of 1ES 2344+514 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2005)
      The BL Lacertae (BL Lac) object 1ES 2344+514 (1ES 2344), at a redshift of 0.044, was discovered as a source of very high energy (VHE) gamma rays by the Whipple Collaboration in 1995 \citep{2344Catanese98}. This detection ...
    • Very High Energy Observations of Gamma-Ray Burst Locations with the Whipple Telescope 

      Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary; Horan, D.; Atkins, R. W.; Badran, H. M.; Blaylock, G.; Bradbury, S. M.; Buckley, J. H.; Byrum, K. L.; Celik, O.; Chow, Y. C. K.; Cogan, P.; Cui, W.; Daniel, M. K.; Perez, I. de la Calle; Dowdall, C.; Falcone, A. D.; Fegan, D. J.; Fegan, S. J.; Finley, J. P.; Fortin, P.; Fortson, L. F.; Gillanders, G. H.; Grube, J.; Gutierrez, K. J.; Hall, J.; Hanna, D.; Holder, J.; Hughes, S. B.; Humensky, T. B.; Kenny, G. E.; Kertzman, M.; Kieda, D. B.; Kildea, J.; Krawczynski, H.; Krennrich, F.; Lang, M. J.; LeBohec, S.; Maier, G.; Moriarty, P.; Nagai, T.; Ong, R. A.; Perkins, J. S.; Petry, D.; Quinn, J.; Quinn, M.; Ragan, K.; Reynolds, P. T.; Rose, H. J.; Schroedter, M.; Sembroski, G. H.; Steele, D.; Swordy, S. P.; Toner, J. A.; Valcarcel, L.; Vassiliev, V. V.; Wagner, R. G.; Wakely, S. P.; Weekes, T. C.; White, R. J.; Williams, D. A. (2007)
      Gamma-ray burst (GRB) observations at very high energies (VHE, E > 100 GeV) can impose tight constraints on some GRB emission models. Many GRB afterglow models predict a VHE component similar to that seen in blazars and ...

    • VLT / Infrared Integral Field Spectrometer Observations of Molecular Hydrogen Lines in the Knots in the Planetary Nebula NGC 7293 (the Helix Nebula) 

      Redman, Matt P. (2007)
      Knots are commonly found in nearby planetary nebulae (PNe) and star forming regions. Within PNe, knots are often found to be associated with the brightest parts of the nebulae and understanding the physics involved in knots ...
    • VLT polarimetry observations of the middle-aged pulsar PSR B0656+14 

      Moran, Paul; Shearer, Andrew (EDP Sciences, 2015-11-02)
      Context. Optical polarisation measurements are key tests for different models of the pulsar magnetosphere. Furthermore, comparing the relative orientation of the phase-averaged linear polarisation direction and the pulsar ...
    • Volcanic sulphate and arctic dust plumes over the North Atlantic Ocean 

      Ovadnevaite, Jurgita; Ceburnis, Darius; Dupuy, Regis; Berresheim, Harald; O Dowd, Colin D. (Elsevier, 2009)
      High time resolution aerosol mass spectrometry measurements were conducted during a field campaign at Mace Head Research Station, Ireland, in June 2007. Observations on one particular day of the campaign clearly indicated ...
