Diffuse axion-like particle searches
We propose a new method to search for axion-like particles (ALPs) based on the gamma-rays produced concomitant with high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. The existence of high-energy neutrinos implies
Extragalactic optical-infrared background radiation, its time evolution and the cosmic photon-photon opacity
Context. The background radiation in the optical and the infrared cause energy loss in the propagation of high energy particles through space. In particular, TeV observations with Cherenkov
The Imprint of the Extragalactic Background Light in the Gamma-Ray Spectra of Blazars
An absorption feature seen in the combined spectra of a sample of gamma-ray blazars out to a redshift of z ∼ 1.6 allowed us to measure the EBL flux density in this frequency band and put constraints on the cosmic history of star formation.
The Search for Spatial Extension in High-latitude Sources Detected by the Fermi Large Area Telescope
We present a search for spatial extension in high-latitude ($|b|>5^\circ$) sources in recent Fermi point source catalogs. The result is the Fermi High-Latitude Extended Sources Catalog, which
The CTA Sensitivity to Lorentz-Violating Effects on the Gamma-Ray Horizon
The arrival of TeV-energy photons from distant galaxies is expected to be affected by their QED interaction with intergalactic radiation fields through electron-positron pair production. In theories
A new method for determining the Hubble constant from sub-TeV gamma-ray observations
The present uncertainty in the Hubble constant leaves unresolved questions regarding the age of the universe and related matters involving the amount and nature of the dark matter in the universe,
Cosmological Magnetic Fields: Their Generation, Evolution and Observation
We review the possible mechanisms for the generation of cosmological magnetic fields, discuss their evolution in an expanding Universe filled with the cosmic plasma and provide a critical review of

Sensitivity of the Cherenkov Telescope Array for probing cosmology and fundamental physics with gamma-ray propagation
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the new-generation ground-based observatory for γ astronomy, provides unique capabilities to address significant open questions in astrophysics, cosmology, and
