13. Ground-based gamma-ray astronomy: Investigating the sky at photon energies between ~20 GeV and 100 TeV
Christopher van Eldik (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg)
Since about a decade, ground-based gamma-ray telescopes are key instruments to investigate the high-energy universe at photon energies above ~100 GeV. Mainly devoted to searching for and characterizing cosmic particle acceleration and transport, the instruments HESS, MAGIC, VERITAS and HAWC have so far discovered more than 100 Galactic and extragalactic sources of very-high-energy (VHE) gamma...
Alessandro De Angelis (Universita degli Studi di Udine (IT))
Several projects planned or proposed can significantly expand our knowledge of the high-energy Universe. Construction of the Cherenkov telescope array CTA is going to start in October, and other detectors are planned which will use the reconstruction of extensive air showers. This talk describes the physics potential of this exploration, with particular attention to possible discoveries on...
Rob van der Meer (ASTRON)
ASTERICS (Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster) brings together astronomers and astroparticle physicists of 22 institutes in Europe to help Europe’s world-leading observatories work together to find common solutions to their Big Data challenges, their interoperability and scheduling, and their data access, searching for cross-cutting solutions with mutual and wide-ranging...
