EBL inhomogeneity and hard-spectrum gamma-ray sources
(IOP Publishing, 2017)
The unexpectedly hard very-high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) γ-ray spectra of a few distant blazars have been interpreted as evidence of a reduction of the γγ opacity of the universe due to the interaction of VHE γ-rays with ...
Lorentz invariance violation effects on gamma-gamma absorption and compton scattering
(IOP Publishing, 2018)
In this paper, we consider the impact of the Lorentz invariance violation (LIV) on the γ − γ opacity of the universe to very high energy (VHE) gamma-rays, compared to the effect of local underdensities (voids) of the ...
