Leptonic and lepto-hadronic modeling of the 2010 November flare from 3C 454.3
In this study, we use a one-zone leptonic and a lepto-hadronic model to investigate the multi-wavelength emission and prominent flare of the flat spectrum radio quasar 3C 454.3 in 2010 November. We perform a parameter study ...
Multiwavelength study of quiescent states of Mrk 421 with unprecedented hard x-ray coverage provided by NuSTAR in 2013
(IOP Publishing, 2016)
We present coordinated multiwavelength observations of the bright, nearby BL Lacertae object Mrk 421 taken in 2013 January–March, involving GASP-WEBT, Swift, NuSTAR, Fermi-LAT, MAGIC, VERITAS, and other collaborations and ...
RoboPol: the optical polarization of gamma-ray-loud and gamma-ray-quiet blazars
(Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
We present average R-band optopolarimetric data, as well as variability parameters, from the first and second RoboPol observing season. We investigate whether gamma-ray-loud and gamma-ray-quiet blazars exhibit systematic ...
The extended flare in CTA 102 in 2016 and 2017 within a hadronic model through cloud ablation by the relativistic jet
(IOP Publishing, 2019)
The flat-spectrum radio quasar CTA 102 (redshift 1.037) exhibited a tremendously bright four-month-long outburst from late 2016 to early 2017. In a previous paper, we interpreted the event as the ablation of a gas cloud ...
Time dependent hadronic modeling of flat spectrum radio quasars
(American Astronomical Society, 2015)
We introduce a new time-dependent lepto-hadronic model for blazar emission that takes into account the radiation emitted by secondary particles, such as pions and muons, from photo hadronic interactions. Starting from ...
Discovery of very high energy γ-ray emission from the BL Lacertae object PKS 0301-243 with H.E.S.S.
(EDP Sciences, 2013)
The active galactic nucleus PKS 0301−243 (z = 0.266) is a high-synchrotron-peaked BL Lac object that is detected at high energies (HE, 100 MeV < E < 100 GeV) by Fermi/LAT. This paper reports on the discovery of PKS 0301−243 ...
The 2012 flare of PG 1553+113 seen with H.E.S.S. and Fermi-LAT
(IOP Publishing, 2015)
Very high energy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) γ-ray flaring activity of the high-frequency peaked BL Lac object PG 1553+113 has been detected by the H.E.S.S. telescopes. The flux of the source increased by a factor of 3 during the ...
Cloud ablation by a relativistic jet and the extended flare in CTA 102 in 2016 and 2017
In late 2016 and early 2017, the flat spectrum radio quasar CTA 102 exhibited a very strong and long-lasting outburst. The event can be described by a roughly two-month long increase of the baseline flux in the monitored energy ...
Constraints on the emission region of 3C 279 during strong flares in 2014 and 2015 through VHE γ-ray observations with H.E.S.S.
(EDP Sciences, 2019)
The flat spectrum radio quasar 3C 279 is known to exhibit pronounced variability in the high-energy (100 MeV < E < 100 GeV) γ-ray band, which is continuously monitored with Fermi-LAT. During two periods of high activity ...
