    • Characterizing the γ-ray long-term variability of PKS 2155-304 with H.E.S.S. and Fermi-LAT 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Sushch, I.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2017)
      Studying the temporal variability of BL Lac objects at the highest energies provides unique insights into the extreme physical processes occurring in relativistic jets and in the vicinity of super-massive black holes. To ...
    • First limits on the very-high energy gamma-ray afterglow emission of a fast radio burst. 

      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.; Venter, C.; Van Rensburg, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2017)
      Aims. Following the detection of the fast radio burst FRB150418 by the SUPERB project at the Parkes radio telescope, we aim to search for very-high energy gamma-ray afterglow emission. Methods. Follow-up observations in ...
    • Gamma-ray blazar spectra with H.E.S.S. II mono analysis: the case of PKS 2155-304 and PG 1553+113 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Davids, I.D.; Garrigoux, T.; Ivascenko, A.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Seyffert, A.S.; Spanier, F.; Sushch, I.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2017)
      Context. The addition of a 28 m Cherenkov telescope (CT5) to the H.E.S.S. array extended the experiment’s sensitivityto lower energies. The lowest energy threshold is obtained using monoscopic analysis of data taken with ...
    • Measurement of the EBL spectral energy distribution using the VHE γ-ray spectra of H.E.S.S. blazars 

      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.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2017)
      Very high-energy γ rays (VHE, E ≳ 100 GeV) propagating over cosmological distances can interact with the low-energy photons of the extragalactic background light (EBL) and produce electron-positron pairs. The transparency ...
