    • Gravitational light-bending prevents γγ absorption in gravitational lenses 

      Böttcher, Markus; Thiersen, Hannes (EDP Sciences, 2016)
      The magnification effect that is due to gravitational lensing enhances the chances of detecting moderate-redshift (z ~ 1) sources in very high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) γ-rays by ground-based atmospheric Cherenkov telescope ...
    • H.E.S.S. observations of the flaring gravitationally lensed galaxy PKS 1830-211 

      Abdalla, H.; Arcaro, C.; Backes, M.; Barnard, M.; Böttcher, M.; Chand, T.; Chandra, S.; Ndiyavala, H.; Schutte, H.; Seyffert, A.S.; Van der Walt, D.J.; Van Rensburg, C.; Venter, C.; Wadiasingh, Z.; Zacharias, M.; H.E.S.S. Collaboration (Oxford Univ Press, 2019)
      PKS 1830–211 is a known macrolensed quasar located at a redshift of z = 2.5. Its high-energy gamma-ray emission has been detected with the Fermi-Large Area Telescope (LAT) instrument and evidence for lensing was obtained ...
