  • Validation of the inhalable dust algorithm of the Advanced REACH Tool using a dataset from the pharmaceutical industry 

    Mc Donnell, Patricia E.; Coggins, Marie (RSC, 2011-05-04)
    As it is often difficult to obtain sufficient numbers of measurements to adequately characterise exposure levels, occupational exposure models may be useful tools in the exposure assessment process. This study aims to ...
  • VERITAS 2008 - 2009 monitoring of the variable gamma-ray source M87 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2010)
    M87 is a nearby radio galaxy that is detected at energies ranging from radio to VHE gamma-rays. Its proximity and its jet, misaligned from our line-of-sight, enable detailed morphological studies and extensive modeling at ...
  • 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 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 (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 ...
