Particle acceleration at shocks propagating in partially ionized plasma

The shocks of several young supernova remnants (SNR) are often associated with very thin optical filaments dominated by Balmer emission resulting from charge-exchange and collisional excitation

A review of Cosmic-ray electrons and fermi-LAT

The study of Galactic Cosmic-ray electrons (CREs) saw important developments in recent years, with the assumption of positron production only in interaction of hadronic Cosmic-rays with interstellar

FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE DETECTION OF SUPERNOVA REMNANT RCW 86

Using 5.4 yr Fermi Large Area Telescope data, we report the detection of GeV γ-ray emission from the shell-type supernova remnant RCW 86 (G315.4-2.3) with a significance of ∼5.1σ. The data slightly

Polarized Balmer line emission from supernova remnant shock waves efficiently accelerating cosmic rays

Linearly polarized Balmer line emissions from supernova remnant shocks are studied taking into account the energy loss of the shock owing to the production of nonthermal particles. The polarization

X-ray line diagnostics of ion temperature at cosmic ray accelerating collisionless shocks

A novel collisionless shock jump condition is suggested by modeling the entropy production at the shock transition region. We also calculate downstream developments of the atomic ionization balance

In the last years, the improvement of performances of high-energy instruments provided a great amount of data relating to Cosmic-Rays. In particular, in the gamma-ray band, we had the first evidence

The Highly Collimated Radio Jet of HH 80–81: Structure and Nonthermal Emission

Radio emission from protostellar jets is usually dominated by free–free emission from thermal electrons. However, in some cases, it has been proposed that nonthermal emission could also be present.

On Cosmic-Ray Production Efficiency at Realistic Supernova Remnant Shocks

We demonstrate by using three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics simulations that the cosmicray (CR) production efficiency at supernova remnants (SNRs) is over-predicted if it is based on proper motion

Radiative transfer of hydrogen lines from supernova remnant shock waves: contributions of 2s-state hydrogen atoms

Radiative transfer in hydrogen lines in supernova remnant (SNR) shock waves is studied taking into account the population of the hydrogen atom 2s-state. Measurements of Balmer line emission,
