A luminous and isolated gamma-ray flare from the blazar b2 1215+30
(American Astronomical Society, 2017-02-21)
B2 1215+30 is a BL-Lac-type blazar that was first detected at TeV energies by the MAGIC atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes and subsequently confirmed by the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS) ...
Very high energy outburst of markarian 501 in may 2009
(EDP Sciences, 2016-10-01)
The very high energy (VHE; E &gt; 100 GeV) blazar Markarian 501 was observed between April 17 and May 5 (MJD 54 938-54 956), 2009, as part of an extensive multiwavelength campaign from radio to VHE. Strong VHE yray ...
Discovery of a new tev gamma-ray source: ver j0521+211
(IOP Publishing, 2013-09-27)
We report the detection of a new TeV gamma-ray source, VER J0521+211, based on observations made with the VERITAS imaging atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope Array. These observations were motivated by the discovery of a cluster ...
Rapid tev gamma-ray flaring of bl lacertae
(IOP Publishing, 2012-12-19)
We report on the detection of a very rapid TeV gamma-ray flare from BL Lacertae on 2011 June 28 with the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS). The flaring activity was observed during a 34.6 ...
Investigating broadband variability of the tev blazar 1es 1959+650
(IOP Publishing, 2014-12-03)
We summarize broadband observations of the TeV-emitting blazar 1ES 1959+650, including optical R-band observations by the robotic telescopes Super-LOTIS and iTelescope, UV observations by Swift Ultraviolet and Optical ...
Spectral energy distribution of markarian 501: quiescent state versus extreme outburst
(IOP Publishing, 2011-02-03)
The very high energy (VHE; E &gt; 100 GeV) blazar Markarian 501 (Mrk 501) has a well-studied history of extreme spectral variability and is an excellent laboratory for studying the physical processes within the jets ...
