Fermi Large Area Telescope Second Source Catalog
We present the second catalog of high-energy γ-ray sources detected by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), the primary science instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi), derived from data
THE SECOND FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE CATALOG OF GAMMA-RAY PULSARS
This catalog summarizes 117 high-confidence > 0.1 GeV gamma-ray pulsar detections using three years of data acquired by the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite. Half are neutron stars
Spectrum of the isotropic diffuse gamma-ray emission derived from first-year Fermi Large Area Telescope data.
TLDR
The first Fermi Large Area Telescope measurements of the so-called "extragalactic" diffuse gamma-ray emission (EGB) are reported, finding the spectrum is featureless, less intense, and softer than that derived from EGRET data.
Detection of the Characteristic Pion-Decay Signature in Supernova Remnants
TLDR
The characteristic pion-decay feature is detected in the gamma-ray spectra of two SNRs, IC 443 and W44, with the Fermi Large Area Telescope, providing direct evidence that cosmic-ray protons are accelerated in SNRs.
A limit on the variation of the speed of light arising from quantum gravity effects
TLDR
The detection of emission up to ∼31 GeV from the distant and short GRB, and no evidence for the violation of Lorentz invariance is found, which disfavour quantum-gravity theories in which the quantum nature of space–time on a very small scale linearly alters the speed of light.
NORTHERN SKY VARIABILITY SURVEY: PUBLIC DATA RELEASE
The Northern Sky Variability Survey (NSVS) is a temporal record of the sky over the optical magnitude range from 8 to 15.5. It was conducted in the course of the first-generation Robotic Optical
Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from GRB 080916C
TLDR
The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor and Large Area Telescope onboard the Fermi Observatory together record GRBs over a broad energy range spanning about 7 decades of gammaray energy, with the largest apparent energy release yet measured.
FERMI LAT DISCOVERY OF EXTENDED GAMMA-RAY EMISSION IN THE DIRECTION OF SUPERNOVA REMNANT W51C
The discovery of bright gamma-ray emission coincident with supernova remnant (SNR) W51C is reported using the Large Area Telescope (LAT) onboard the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. W51C is a middl
Measurement of the cosmic ray e+ +e- spectrum from 20 GeV to 1 TeV with the Fermi Large Area Telescope.
TLDR
This work has developed an efficient electron detection strategy which provides sufficient background rejection for measurement of the steeply falling electron spectrum up to 1 TeV and shows that the electron spectrum falls with energy as E-3.0 and does not exhibit prominent spectral features.
Detection of 16 Gamma-Ray Pulsars Through Blind Frequency Searches Using the Fermi LAT
TLDR
The Fermi Large Area Telescope makes it possible to pinpoint neutron stars through their gamma-ray pulsations, enabling studies of emission mechanisms, population statistics, and the energetics of pulsar wind nebulae and supernova remnants.
