FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE FIRST SOURCE CATALOG
We present a catalog of high-energy gamma-ray sources detected by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), the primary science instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi), during the first 11
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
Relativistic jet activity from the tidal disruption of a star by a massive black hole
TLDR
Observations of a bright X-ray flare from the extragalactic transient Swift J164449.3+573451 conclude that they have captured the onset of relativistic jet activity from a supermassive black hole.
A change in the optical polarization associated with a γ-ray flare in the blazar 3C 279
It is widely accepted that strong and variable radiation detected over all accessible energy bands in a number of active galaxies arises from a relativistic, Doppler-boosted jet pointing close to our
Announcement of the Swift/BAT Hard X-ray Transient Monitor
The Swift/Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) hard X-ray transient monitor provides near real-time coverage of the X-ray sky in the energy range 15-50 keV. The BAT observes 88% of the sky each day with a
The fermi large area telescope on orbit: Event classification, instrument response functions, and calibration
The Fermi Large Area Telescope (Fermi-LAT, hereafter LAT), the primary instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi) mission, is an imaging, wide field-of-view, high-energy γ-ray
The three types of high-mass X-ray pulsator
High mass X-ray pulsators are shown to be divisible into three distinct groups on the basis of their observational properties: 1) the Be star systems, 2) non-Be star systems with long pulse periods,
A Systematic Search for Periodicities in RXTE ASM Data
We present the results of a systematic search in 8.5 years of Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer All-Sky Monitor data for evidence of periodicities. The search was conducted by application of the
A Population of Gamma-Ray Millisecond Pulsars Seen with the Fermi Large Area Telescope
TLDR
Fermi Large Area Telescope data is searched for pulsations from all known millisecond pulsars outside of stellar clusters, finding gamma-ray pulsations for eight of them, suggesting that they share the same basic emission mechanism with standard gamma-Ray pulsars.
Fermi LAT Observations of LS 5039
The first results from observations of the high mass X-ray binary LS 5039 using the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope data between 2008 August and 2009 June are presented. Our results indicate
