Discovery of the source HESS J1356-645 associated with the young and energetic PSR J1357-6429
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
Context. Several newly discovered very-high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) γ-ray sources in the Galaxy are thought to be associated with energetic pulsars. Among them, middle-aged (≳104 yr) systems exhibit large centre-filled ...
Discovery of hard-spectrum y-ray emission from the BL Lacertae object 1ES0414+009
(EDP Sciences, 2012)
Context. 1ES 0414 + 009 (z = 0.287) is a distant high-frequency-peaked BL Lac object, and has long been considered a likely emitter of very-high-energy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) γ-rays due to its high X-ray and radio flux. Aims. ...
VHE y-ray emission of PKS 2155-304: spectral and temporal variability
(EDP Sciences, 2010)
Context. Observations of very high-energy γ-rays from blazars provide information about acceleration mechanisms occurring in their innermost regions. Studies of variability in these objects lead to a better understanding ...
H.E.S.S. observations of the globular clusters NGC 6388 and M15 and search for a dark matter signal
(IOP Publishing, 2011)
Observations of the globular clusters (GCs) NGC 6388 and M15 were carried out by the High Energy Stereoscopic System array of Cherenkov telescopes for a live time of 27.2 and 15.2 hr, respectively. No gamma-ray signal is ...
Detection of very-high-energy y-ray emission from the vicinity of PSR B1706-44 and G 343.1-2.3 with H.E.S.S.
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
The γ-ray pulsar PSRB1706−44 and the adjacent supernova remnant (SNR) candidate G343.1−2.3 were observed by H.E.S.S. during a dedicated observation campaign in 2007. As a result of this observation campaign, a new source ...
Search for dark matter annihilation signals from the fornax galaxy cluster with HESS
(IOP Publishing, 2012)
The Fornax galaxy cluster was observed with the High Energy Stereoscopic System for a total live time of 14.5 hr, searching for very high energy (VHE; E > 100GeV) γ -rays from dark matter (DM) annihilation. No significant ...
