    • Characterising the VHE diffuse emission in the central 200 parsecs of our Galaxy with H.E.S.S. 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Richter, S.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Sushch, I.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; Zacharias, M. (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      The diffuse very high-energy (VHE; >100 GeV) γ-ray emission observed in the central 200 pc of the Milky Way by H.E.S.S. was found to follow dense matter distribution in the central molecular zone (CMZ) up to a longitudinal ...
    • Constraints on particle acceleration in SS433/W50 from MAGIC and H.E.S.S. observations 

      Ahnen, M.L.; Munar-Adrover, P.; Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Richter, S.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Sushch, I. (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Context. The large jet kinetic power and non-thermal processes occurring in the microquasar SS 433 make this source a good candidate for a very high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray emitter. Gamma-ray fluxes above the sensitivity ...
    • Deeper H.E.S.S. observations of Vela Junior (RX J0852.0-4622): morphology studies and resolved spectroscopy 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Richter, S.; Seyffert, A.S.; Sushch, I.; Spanier, F.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z. (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Aims. We study γ-ray emission from the shell-type supernova remnant (SNR) RX J0852.0−4622 to better characterize its spectral properties and its distribution over the SNR. Methods. The analysis of an extended High Energy ...
    • 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 ...
    • Discovery of gamma-ray emission from the extragalactic pulsar wind nebula N 157B with H.E.S.S 

      Abramowski, A.; Casanova, S.; De Jager, O.C.; Pekeur, N.W.; Sheidaei, F.; Venter, C.; Vorster, M. (EDP Sciences, 2012)
      We present the significant detection of the first extragalactic pulsar wind nebula (PWN) detected in gamma rays, N 157B, located in the large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Pulsars with high spin-down luminosity are found to power ...
    • Discovery of pulsed γ-rays from PSR J0034-0534 with the Fermi large area telescope: a case for co-located radio and γ-ray emission regions 

      Abdo, A.A.; Venter, C.; Ackermann, M.; Ajello, M.; Allafort, A. (IOP Publishing, 2010)
      Millisecond pulsars (MSPs) have been firmly established as a class of γ-ray emitters via the detection of pulsations above 0.1 GeV from eight MSPs by the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT). Using 13 months of LAT data, ...
    • Discovery of two millisecond pulsars in Fermi sources with the nançay radio telescope 

      Cognard, I.; Venter, C.; Guillemot, L.; Johnson, T.J.; Smith, D.A. (IOP Publishing, 2011)
      We report the discovery of two millisecond pulsars in a search for radio pulsations at the positions of Fermi-Large Area Telescope sources with no previously known counterparts, using the Nan¸cay Radio Telescope. The two ...
    • Energy loss in intergalactic pair beams: particle-in-cell simulation 

      Kempf, A.; Kilian, P.; Spanier, F. (EDP Sciences, 2016)
      Aims. The change in the distribution function of electron-positron pair beams determines whether GeV photons can be produced as secondary radiation from TeV photons. We will discuss the instabilities driven by pair ...
    • Extended VHE γ-ray emission towards SGR1806-20, LBV 1806-20, and stellar cluster Cl* 1806-20
