A new SNR with TeV shell-type morphology: HESS J1731-347
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
Aims. The recent discovery of the radio shell-type supernova remnant (SNR), G353.6-0.7, in spatial coincidence with the unidentified TeV source HESS J1731−347 has motivated further observations of the source with the High ...
Discovery of gamma-ray emission from the extragalactic pulsar wind nebula N 157B with H.E.S.S
(EDP Sciences, 2012)
We present the significant detection of the first extragalactic pulsar wind nebula (PWN) detected in gamma rays, N 157B, located in the large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Pulsars with high spin-down luminosity are found to power ...
HESS upper limits for Kepler's supernova remnant
(EDP sciences, 2008)
Aims. Observations of Kepler's supernova remnant (G4.5+6.8) with the HESS telescope array in 2004 and 2005 with a total live time of 13 h are presented. Methods. Stereoscopic imaging of Cherenkov radiation from extensive ...
Numerical simulations of composite supernova remnants for small σ pulsar wind nebulae
(EDP Sciences, 2013)
Context. Composite supernova remnants consist of a pulsar wind nebula located inside a shell-type remnant. The presence of a shell has implications on the evolution of the nebula, although the converse is generally not ...
Primary particle acceleration above 100 TeV in the shell-type supernova remnant RX J1713.7-3946 with deep H.E.S.S. observations (Corrigendum to article: Primary particle acceleration above 100 TeV in the shell-type supernova remnant RX J1713.7-3946 with deep HESS observations, 464(1):235-243.)

Chandra and HESS observations of the supernova remnant CTB 37B
(EDP Sciences, 2008)
We discovered the >100 GeV γ-ray source, HESS J1713−381, apparently associated with the shell-type supernova remnant (SNR) CTB37B, using HESS in 2006. In 2007 we performed X-ray follow-up observations with Chandra with ...
Spatially resolved XMM-Newton analysis and a model of the nonthermal emission of MSH 15-52
(EDP Sciences, 2010)
We present an X-ray analysis and a model of the nonthermal emission of the pulsar wind nebula (PWN) MSH 15 − 5 2 . We analyzed XMM-Newton data to obtain the spatially resolved spectral parameters around the pulsar PSR ...
