Keywords: Gamma-ray Astronomy, High-energy astrophysics 1. Introduction Teraelectronvolt (TeV) astronomy concerns the study of astrophysical sources of gamma-ray photons, with energies in the range between ∼ 30 GeV and ∼ 30 TeV. The TeV range is one of the most recent windows of the electromagnetic spectrum to be opened for study. Associate Professor Robert Preece is a world-class expert on gamma-ray spectroscopy; as a co-investigator for the Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor on NASA's Fermi Space Telescope, launched on J , he is uncovering the clues that will reveal for the first time the incredibly efficient mechanism that gamma-ray bursts use to harness the immense.

Gamma-ray astronomy is the astronomical observation of gamma rays, the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation, with photon energies above ion below keV is classified as X-rays and is the subject of X-ray astronomy.. In most known cases, gamma rays from solar flares and Earth's atmosphere are generated in the MeV range, but it is now known . TeV Gamma-ray Astronomy: A Summary Holder, J. () Abstract: The field of TeV gamma-ray astronomy has produced many exciting results over the last decade. Both the source catalogue, and the range of astrophysical questions which can be addressed, continue to expand.

the energy range GeV to 50 TeV. In this chapter I will touch briefly on the history of gamma-ray astronomy. The technique used in this dissertation is the ground-based technique, so I will focus on how this technique is accomplished. Finally I will discuss a few gamma-ray.

The current knowledge about the origin of cosmic rays has been accumulated following two different approaches: (i) by measuring in detail the energy spectrum and mass composition of the local cosmic-ray population and (ii) by gamma-ray (E > MeV) observations of both individual astrophysical objects as well as the diffuse emission from the interstellar Cited by: A major open question within the astroparticle physics community is whether VHE gamma-ray emission results from processes involving acceleration of electrons or protons. We can use VHE observations of previously detected TeV sources to investigate the nature of the very-high-energy objects' power sources and of the particle population of these.
