    • Detection of gamma rays from a starburst galaxy 

      Acero, F.; Büsching, I.; Davids, I.D.; De Jager, O.C.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (AAAS, 2009)
      Starburst galaxies exhibit in their central regions a highly increased rate of supernovae, the remnants of which are thought to accelerate energetic cosmic rays up to energies of ~1015 electron volts. We report the detection ...
    • Discovery and follow-up studies of the extended, off-plane, VHE gamma-ray source HESS J1507-622 

      Acero, F.; Busching, I.; Davids, I.D.; De Jager, O.C.; Holleran, M.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (EDP Sciences, 2011)
      Context. The detection of gamma-rays in the very-high-energy (VHE) range (100 GeV−100 TeV) offers the possibility of studying the parent population of ultrarelativistic particles found in astrophysical sources, so it is ...
    • First detection of VHE y-rays from SN 1006 by HESS 

      Acero, F.; Büsching, I.; Davids, I.D.; De Jager, O.C.; Holleran, M.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (EDP Sciences, 2010)
    • HESS upper limits on very high energy gamma-ray emission from the microquasar 

      Acero, F.; Büsching, I.; Davids, I.D.; Holleran, M.; De Jager, O.C.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (EDP Sciences, 2009)
      Context. High energy particles reside in the relativistic jets of microquasars, making them possible sources of very high energy radiation (VHE, >100 GeV). Detecting this emission would provide a new handle on jet ...
    • Localizing the VHE y-ray source at the galactic centre 

      Acero, F.; Busching, I.; Davids, I.D.; De Jager, O.C.; Holleran, M.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (Oxford University Press, 2010)
      The inner 10 pc of our Galaxy contains many counterpart candidates of the very high energy (VHE; >100 GeV) γ -ray point source HESS J1745−290. Within the point spread function of the H.E.S.S. measurement, at least three ...
    • PKS 2005-489 at VHE: four years of monitoring with HESS and simultaneous multi-wavelength observations 

      Acero, F.; Büsching, I.; Davids, I.D.; De Jager, O.C.; Holleran, M.; Raubenheimer, B.C.; Venter, C. (EDP Sciences, 2010)
      Aims. Our aim is to study the very high energy (VHE; E>100 GeV) γ-ray emission from BL Lac objects and the evolution in time of their broad-band spectral energy distribution (SED). Methods. VHE observations of the ...
