Markarian (or Mrk ) is a galaxy with a spectrum extending to the highest energy gamma rays. It is a blazar or BL Lac object, which is an active galactic nucleus with a jet that is shooting towards the Earth. In the very-high-energy gamma ray region of the spectrum, at energies above 10 11 eV ( TeV), it is the brightest object in the sky.

The object has a redshift of z = Constellation: Hercules. Observations of TeV gamma rays from Markarian at large zenith angles Chadwick, P.M. et al., Journal of Physics G Nuclear Physics 25 p () Measurement of the Multi-TEV Gamma-Ray Flare Spectra of Markarian and Markarian Krennrich, F.

Acceleration models generally have to allow for variability in the TeV emis-sion, since a number of TeV blazars are known to exhibit strong ux changes. During such ares, TeV uxes have been observed to increase by an order of magnitude and. – Remarkable TeV gamma-ray flares are detected from the blazar Markarianand are followed around the clock with several atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes: Whipple (in Arizona), HEGRA (High Energy Gamma Ray Astronomy array, on La Palma), CAT (Cherenkov Array at Themis, in France), and TAP (Telescope Array Prototype, in Utah).

Abstract: We present results from daily monitoring of gamma rays in the energy range $\sim$ to $\sim$ TeV with the first 17 months of data from the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Observatory.

Its wide field of view of 2 steradians and duty cycle of $>95$% are unique features compared to other TeV observatories that allow us to observe every source that transits over HAWC Cited by: VER J+ (RGB J+) is one of the brightest and most powerful blazars detected in the TeV gamma-ray regime.

Dramatic variability in its gamma-ray emission on time-scales from years to as short as two hours has been detected.

However, the gamma-ray flux from the Cygnus region (after excluding MGRO J+37) as measured at ~12 TeV exceeds that predicted from a model of cosmic-ray production and propagation. This observation indicates the existence of either hard-spectrum cosmic-ray sources and/or unresolved sources of TeV gamma rays in the region.

We consider the relationship of the TeV gamma-ray emission with the GeV gamma-ray emission seen from SNR G+ as well as that seen from a nearby cocoon of freshly accelerated cosmic rays.

Multiple scenarios are considered as possible origins for the TeV gamma-ray emission, including hadronic particle acceleration at the SNR shock. However, the gamma-ray flux from the Cygnus region (after excluding MGRO J 37) as measured at ∼12 TeV exceeds that predicted from a model of cosmic-ray production and propagation.

This observation indicates the existence of either hard-spectrum cosmic-ray sources and/or unresolved sources of TeV gamma rays in the region. large number of gamma-ray sources such as pulsars, pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe), supernova remnants (SNRs), compact object binaries, diffuse emission from the Galactic plane, and sources without known astrophysical associations.

The most commonly identified TeV Galactic sources are SNRs and PWNe (Wakely & Horan ). SNRs are thought to beCited by: For all of these, however, the evidence that particle acceleration in stellar winds is the driving force behind the gamma-ray emission is not definitive (e.g.).

The energies are chosen such that roughly equal amounts of total light would be detected by a detector like the Whipple 10m telescope. Notice that the gamma-ray. Examples of blazars include 3C3CBL Lacertae, PKSMarkarianMarkarian and S5 + Markarian and S5 +81 are also called "TeV Blazars" for their high energy (teraelectron-volt range) gamma-ray emission.

S5 +81 is also notable for the most massive black hole ever observed, at 40 billion solar masses. Abstract. We report the results of TeV gamma-ray observa-tions of the shell type SNR RXJ− (G−). The discovery of strong non-thermal X-ray emission from the northwest part of the remnant strongly suggests the existence of electrons with energies up to ˘ TeV in the remnant, making the SNR a good candidate TeV gamma-ray.

The emission of gamma rays does not alter the number of protons or neutrons in the nucleus but instead has the effect of moving the nucleus from a higher to a lower energy state (unstable to stable).

Gamma ray emission frequently follows beta decay, alpha decay, and other nuclear decay processes. An overview of gamma rays from space is presented.

We highlight the most powerful astrophysical explosions, known as gamma-ray bursts. The main features observed in detectors onboard satellites are indicated. In addition, we also highlight a chronological description of the efforts made to observe their high energy counterpart at ground by: 1.

A gamma ray is photon of light that has the symbol 0 0 γ. Since light does not have mass or charge, we use two zeroes in the symbol. Gamma rays usually are emitted along with other particles.
