We present evidence supporting a SNR origin for the radio source G337.2+0.1, which was discovered along the line of sight to the Norma spiral arm in the MOST 843-MHz radio survey. The radio source is spatially superposed to the unidentified ASCA source AX J1635.9-4719. An analysis of this latter source reveals that its X-ray spectrum, extended nature, and non-variable flux are consistent with what is expected for a SNR. In addition, we have used HI-line observations of the region to look for…

XMM-Newton Detection of the Supernova Remnant G337.2+0.1
We report the first XMM-Newton detection of the SNR candidate G337.2+0.1 (=AX J1635.9-4719). The object shows centrally filled and diffuse X-ray emission. The emission peaks in the hard 3.0-10.0 keV
Hard X-ray emission from the SNR G337.2+0.1
Abstract We report hard X-ray emission of the non-thermal supernova remnant G337.2+0.1. The source presents centrally filled and diffuse X-ray emission. A spectral study confirms that the column
Chandra observations of galactic supernova remnant Vela Jr. : A new sample of thin filaments emitting synchrotron X-rays
The Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) Vela Jr. (RX J0852.0-4622, G266.6-1.2) shows sharp filamentary structures on its northwestern edge in the hard X-ray band. The filaments are very smooth and
The Norma arm region Chandra survey catalog: X-ray populations in the spiral arms
We present a catalog of 1415 X-ray sources identified in the No rma arm region Chandra survey (NARCS), which covers a 2 ◦ × 0. 8 region in the direction of the Norma spiral arm to a depth of ≈20 ks.
The H.E.S.S. Survey of the Inner Galaxy in Very High Energy Gamma Rays
The distribution in Galactic latitude of the detected sources appears to be consistent with a scale height in the Galactic disk for the parent population smaller than 100 pc, consistent with expectations for supernova remnants and/or pulsar wind nebulae.
Associations of very high energy gamma-ray sources discovered by H.E.S.S. with pulsar wind nebulae
Abstract The H.E.S.S. array of imaging Cherenkov telescopes has discovered a number of previously unknown γ-ray sources in the very high energy (VHE) domain above 100 GeV. The good angular resolution
Associations of Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Sources Discovered by H . E . S . S . with Pulsar Wind Nebulae
The H.E.S.S. array of imaging Cherenkov telescopes has discovered a number of previously unknown γray sources in the very high energy (VHE) domain above 100 GeV. The good angular resolution of
To uniformly determine the properties of supernova remnants (SNRs) at high energies, we have developed the first systematic survey at energies from 1 to 100 GeV using data from the Fermi Large Area


A Diffuse X-Ray Source, AX J1843.80352: Association with the Radio Complex G28.6-0.1 and Identification of a New Supernova Remnant
ASCA discovered an extended source in the Scutum constellation. The X-ray morphology is an elliptical shape elongated from north to south with a mean diameter of about 10'. The image center is
A variability analysis of low-latitude unidentified gamma-ray sources
We present a study of 40 low-latitude unidentied 3EG gamma-ray sources which were found to be not positionally coincident with any known class of potential gamma-ray emitters in the Galaxy (Romero et
Separating Thermal and Nonthermal X-Rays in Supernova Remnants. I. Total Fits to SN 1006 AD
The remnant of SN 1006 has an X-ray spectrum dominated by nonthermal emission, and pre-ASCA observations were well described by a synchrotron calculation with electron energies limited by escape. We

We present a multiwavelength study of the field containing the unidentified X-ray source AX J1639.0−4642, dis- covered with the ASCA observatory and recently detected with the IBIS telescope, onboard
Discovery of Non-Thermal X-Rays from the Northwest Shell of the New SNR RX J1713.7-3946: The Second SN 1006?
We report on the ASCA results of a featureless X-ray spectrum from RX J1713.7—3946, a new shell-like SNR discovered with the ROSAT all-sky survey. The northwest part of RX J1713.7-3946 was in the
The variability of the high-energy gamma-ray sources in the Third EGRET Catalog is analyzed by a new method. We reanalyze the EGRET data to calculate a likelihood function for the flux of each source
Thermal and Nonthermal X-Ray Emission in Supernova Remnant RCW 86
Supernova remnants may exhibit both thermal and nonthermal X-ray emission. Such remnants can be distinguished by the weakness of their X-ray lines because of the presence of a strong nonthermal X-ray
