CANGAROO-III Search for TeV Gamma-rays from Two Clusters of Galaxies

Abstract

As accretion and merger shocks in clusters of galaxies may accelerate particles to high energies, clusters are candidate sites for the origin of ultra-high-energy (UHE) cosmic-rays. Recently, a prediction was presented for gamma-ray emission from a cluster of galaxies at a detectable level with modern imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. The gamma-ray… (More)
