The CTA aims at the Inert Doublet Model

We show that the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) can realistically challenge the Inert Doublet Model, one of the simplest and best known models of dark matter. Specifically, the CTA may exclude its

Observation of Pulsed γ-Rays Above 25 GeV from the Crab Pulsar with MAGIC

By developing a new electronic trigger, the threshold of the MAGIC telescope is lowered, revealing a relatively high cutoff energy in the phase-averaged spectrum, which indicates that the emission occurs far out in the magnetosphere, hence excluding the polar-cap scenario as a possible explanation of the measurement.
