The γ-ray emission from stars is induced by the interaction of cosmic rays with stellar atmospheres and photon fields. This emission is expected to come in two components: a stellar disc emission, where γ-rays are mainly produced in atmospheric showers generated by hadronic cosmic rays, and an extended halo emission, where the high density of soft photons in the surroundings of stars create a suitable environment for γ-ray production via inverse Compton (IC) scattering by cosmic ray electrons… Expand

A Stacking Search for Gamma-Ray Emission from Nearby Flare Stars and the Periodic Source TVLM 513-46546
So far, the Sun is the only isolated main sequence star detected in gamma-rays, particularly during powerful flares. Young ultracool dwarfs are far more active so they are also plausible gamma-rayExpand
