    • Characterising the VHE diffuse emission in the central 200 parsecs of our Galaxy with H.E.S.S. 

      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, 2018)
      The diffuse very high-energy (VHE; >100 GeV) γ-ray emission observed in the central 200 pc of the Milky Way by H.E.S.S. was found to follow dense matter distribution in the central molecular zone (CMZ) up to a longitudinal ...
    • H.E.S.S. observations of the Crab during its March 2013 GeV gamma-ray flare 

      Abramowski, A.; Böttcher, M.; Casanova, S.; Davids, I.D.; Krüger, P.P.; Pekeur, N.W.; Sushch, I.; Venter, C.; Vorster, M.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2014)
      Context. On March 4, 2013 the Fermi-LAT and AGILE reported a flare from the direction of the Crab nebula in which the high-energy (HE; E > 100 MeV) flux was six times above its quiescent level. Simultaneous observations ...
    • HESS J1741-302: a hidden accelerator in the Galactic plane 

      Abdalla, H.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; 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.; Zacharias, M.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      The H.E.S.S. Collaboration has discovered a new very high energy (VHE, E > 0.1 TeV) γ-ray source, HESS J1741−302, located in the Galactic plane. Despite several attempts to constrain its nature, no plausible counterpart ...
    • Prospects for Cherenkov Telescope Array observations of the young supernova remnant RX J1713.7−3946 

      Acero, F.; Böttcher, M.; Aloisio, R.; Amans, J.; Amato, E. (AAS, 2017)
      We perform simulations for future Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) observations of RX J1713.7−3946, a young supernova remnant (SNR) and one of the brightest sources ever discovered in very high energy (VHE) gamma rays. ...
    • Systematic search for very-high-energy gamma-ray emission from bow shocks of runaway stars 

      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.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Context. Runaway stars form bow shocks by ploughing through the interstellar medium at supersonic speeds and are promising sources of non-thermal emission of photons. One of these objects has been found to emit non-thermal ...
