Aims. PKS 0548-322 (z=0.069) is a "high-frequency-peaked'' BL Lac object and a candidate very high energy (VHE, E >100 GeV) $\gamma$-ray emitter, due to its high X-ray and radio flux. Observations at the VHE band provide ...
• #### Energy spectrum of cosmic-ray electrons at TeV energies ﻿

(APS, 2008)
The very large collection area of ground-based γ-ray telescopes gives them a substantial advantage over balloon or satellite based instruments in the detection of very-high-energy (>600  GeV) cosmic-ray electrons. Here we ...
