A 5.5-year Fermi LAT gamma-ray observation shows significant extended emission at the position of the supernova remnant HB9 (G160.9+2.6). The significance of the detection above the background for photon energies above 0.2 GeV is 16$\sigma$. The gamma-ray flux above 0.2 GeV is (2.23E-8) photons/cm$^2$ s, and the corresponding luminosity above 1 GeV is 1.4E33 erg/s (for a source distance of 1 kpc). The spectrum of the source is best described by a curved power-law (log-parabola). The gamma-ray…

Origin of the gamma-ray emission from supernova remnant HB9

HB9 (G160.9+2.6) is a mixed-morphology Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) at a distance of ∼0.6 kpc. Previous analyses revealed recombining plasma emission in X-rays and an expanding shell structure in

GeV γ-ray EMISSION DETECTED BY FERMI-LAT PROBABLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE THERMAL COMPOSITE SUPERNOVA REMNANT KESTEVEN 41 IN A MOLECULAR ENVIRONMENT

Hadronic emission from supernova remnant (SNR)–molecular cloud (MC) association systems has been widely regarded as a probe of shock-accelerated cosmic-ray protons. Here, we report on the detection

Discovery of recombining plasma inside the extended gamma-ray supernova remnant HB9

We present the results from the Suzaku X-ray Imaging Spectrometer observation of the mixed-morphology supernova remnant (SNR) HB9 (G160.9+2.6). We discovered recombining plasma (RP) in the western

Search for New Cosmic-Ray Acceleration Sites within the 4FGL Catalog Galactic Plane Sources

Cosmic rays are mostly composed of protons accelerated to relativistic speeds. When those protons encounter interstellar material, they produce neutral pions, which in turn decay into gamma-rays.

Observational Constraints on the Maximum Energies of Accelerated Particles in Supernova Remnants: Low Maximum Energies and a Large Variety

Supernova remnants (SNRs) are thought to be the most promising sources of Galactic cosmic rays. One of the principal questions is whether they are accelerating particles up to the maximum energy of

Perspective on the Cosmic-ray Electron Spectrum above TeV

The AMS-02 has measured the cosmic-ray electron (plus positron) spectrum up to ∼TeV with unprecedented precision. The spectrum can be well described by a power law without any obvious features above
