Identification of HESS J1303-631 as a pulsar wind nebula through y-ray, x-ray, and radio observations
(EDP Science, 2012)
Aims. The previously unidentified very high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) γ-ray source HESS J1303−631, discovered in 2004, is re-examined including new data from the H.E.S.S. Cherenkov telescope array in order to identify this ...
Discovery of gamma-ray emission from the extragalactic pulsar wind nebula N 157B with H.E.S.S
(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 ...
Search for TeV Gamma-ray emission from GRB 100621A, an extremely bright GRB in X-rays, with H.E.S.S.
(EDP Sciences, 2014)
The long gamma-ray burst (GRB) 100621A, at the time the brightest X-ray transient ever detected by Swift-XRT in the 0:3–10 keV range, has been observed with the H.E.S.S. imaging air Cherenkov telescope array, sensitive ...
H.E.S.S. observations of the binary system PSR B1259-63/LS 2883 around the 2010/2011 periastron passage
(EDP Sciences, 2013)
Aims. We present very high energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) data from the γ-ray binary system PSR B1259-63/LS 2883 taken around its periastron passage on 15th of December 2010 with the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) ...
Very-high-energy gamma-ray emission from the direction of the Galactic globular cluster Terzan 5
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
The HESS very-high-energy (VHE, E > 0.1 TeV) gamma-ray telescope system has discovered a new source, HESS J1747-248. The measured integral flux is (1.2 ± 0.3) × 10-12 cm-2 s-1 above 440 GeV for a power-law photon spectral ...
