  • The 2009 multiwavelength campaign on Mrk 421: variability and correlation studies 

    Gillanders, Gary; Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary; Lang, Mark; Moriarty, P. (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 ...
  • The most powerful flaring activity from the NLSyl PMN J0948+0022 

    Moriarty, P.; Gillanders, Gary; Lang, Mark (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 ...
  • A search for pulsations from Geminga above 100 GeV with VERITAS 

    Connolly, M.P.; Gillanders, Gary; Moriarty, P.; Lang, Mark (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 ...
  • A Search for Pulsed TeV Gamma Ray Emission from the Crab Pulsar 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary; Burdett, A. M.; Bond, I. H.; Boyle, P. J.; Bradbury, S. M.; Buckley, J. H.; Carter-Lewis, D. A.; Catanese, M.; Cawley, M. F.; D'Vali, M.; Fegan, D. J.; Fegan, S. J.; Finley, J. P.; Gaidos, J. A.; Gillanders, G. H.; Hall, T. A.; Hillas, A. M.; Kildea, J.; Knapp, J.; Krennrich, F.; Lang, M. J.; LeBohec, S.; Lessard, R. W.; Masterson, C.; Moriarty, P.; Quinn, J.; Rose, H. J.; Samuelson, F. W.; Sembroski, G. H.; Srinivasan, R.; Vassiliev, V. V.; Weekes, T. C. (1999)
    We present the results of a search for pulsed TeV emission from the Crab pulsar using the Whipple Observatory's 10m gamma-ray telescope. The direction of the Crab pulsar was observed for a total of 73.4 hours between 1994 ...

  • Unprecedented study of the broadband emission of Mrk 421 during flaring activity in March 2010 

    Moriarty, P.; Gillanders, Gary; Lang, Mark (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 ...
  • VERITAS detection of gamma-ray flaring activity from the BL LAC object 1ES 1727+502 during bright moonlight observations 

    Connolly, M.P.; Gillanders, Gary; Moriarty, P.; Lang, Mark (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 ...
  • VERITAS observations of the BL Lac object PG 1553+113 

    Connolly, M.P.; Gillanders, Gary; Moriarty, P.; Lang, Mark (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 ...
  • Very High Energy Observations of Gamma-Ray Burst Locations with the Whipple Telescope

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.

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 ...
