Limits to quantum gravity effects on energy dependence of the speed of light from observations of tev flares in active galaxies
(American Physical Society (APS), 1999-09-13)
We have used data from a TeV gamma-ray flare associated with the active galaxy Markarian 421 to place bounds on the possible energy dependence of the speed of light in the context of an effective quantum gravitational ...
Very high‐energy observations of psr b1951+32
(IOP Publishing, 1997-11-01)
PSR B1951 + 32 is a gamma-ray pulsar detected by the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET) and identified with the 39.5 ms radio pulsar in the supernova remnant CTB 80. The pulsar energy spectrum is consistent ...
Multiwavelength observations of a flare from markarian 501
(IOP Publishing, 1997-10-01)
We present multiwavelength observations of the BL Lacertae object Markarian 501 (Mrk 501) in 1997 between April 8 and April 19. Evidence of correlated variability is seen in very high energy (VHE; E greater than or similar ...
Measurement of the multi‐tev gamma‐ray flare spectra of markarian 421 and markarian 501
(IOP Publishing, 1999-01-20)
The energy spectrum of Markarian 421 in flaring states has been measured from 0.3 to 10 TeV using both small and large zenith angle observations with the Whipple Observatory 10 m imaging telescope. The large zenith angle ...
The spectrum of tev gamma rays from the crab nebula
(IOP Publishing, 1998-08-20)
The spectrum of gamma rays from the Crab Nebula has been measured in the energy range 500 GeV-8 TeV at the Whipple Observatory by the atmospheric Cerenkov technique. Two methods of analysis that were used to derive spectra, ...
The flux variability of markarian 501 in very high energy gamma rays
(IOP Publishing, 1999-06-20)
The BL Lacertae object Markarian 501 was identified as a source of gamma-ray emission at the Whipple Observatory in 1995 March. Here we present a flux variability analysis on several timescales of the 233 hr data set ...
Simultaneous x-ray and t[clc]e[/clc]v observations of a rapid flare from markarian 421
(IOP Publishing, 1999-12-01)
Mrk 421 was observed for about 2 days with BeppoSAX in 1998 April as part of a worldwide multiwavelength campaign. A large, well-defined flare was observed in X-rays. The same flare was observed simultaneously at TeV ...
Correlated variability of mkn 421 at x-ray and tev wavelengths on time scales of hours
