New pulsars detected in gamma-rays with the Fermi-LAT
The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) is a powerful pulsar detector, as demonstrated by the over one hundred objects in its second catalog of pulsars. Pass 8 is a new reconstruction and event
Detection of Gamma Ray Emission from the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
The Fermi Bubbles are giant, γ-ray emitting lobes emanating from the nucleus of the Milky Way [1, 2] discovered in ∼1-100 GeV data collected by the Large Area Telescope on board the Fermi Gamma-Ray
The High Time Resolution Universe Pulsar Survey – XVI. Discovery and timing of 40 pulsars from the southern Galactic plane
We present the results of processing an additional 44% of the High Time Resolution Universe South Low Latitude (HTRU-S LowLat) pulsar survey, the most sensitive blind pulsar survey of the southern
Millisecond pulsars and the Galactic Center gamma-ray excess: the importance of luminosity function and secondary emission
Several groups of authors have analyzed Fermi LAT data in a region around the Galactic Center finding an unaccounted gamma-ray excess over diffuse backgrounds in the GeV energy range. It has been
Gamma-ray astrophysics in the MeV range
The energy range between about 100 keV and 1 GeV is of interest for a vast class of astrophysical topics. In particular, (1) it is the missing ingredient for understanding extreme processes in the
Discovery of TeV gamma-ray emission from the pulsar wind nebula 3C 58 by MAGIC
The pulsar wind nebula (PWN) 3C 58 is one of the historical very-high-energy (VHE; E>100 GeV) gamma-ray source candidates. It has been compared to the Crab Nebula due to their morphological
Recent pulsar results from VERITAS on Geminga and the missing link binary pulsar PSR J1023+0038
In recent years, the Fermi-LAT gamma-ray telescope has detected a population of over 160 gamma-ray pulsars, which has enabled the detailed study of electromagnetic radiation from pulsars at energies
Dependence of the flux of gamma-ray pulsars on distance: A nonparametric analysis of the data in the second FERMI catalogue
Pulsars’ gamma-ray luminosities are thought to exceed their radio luminosities by several orders of magnitude: a notion that is based on the assumption that the decay with distance of the flux of
MeV Pulsars: Modeling Spectra and Polarization
A sub-population of energetic rotation-powered pulsars show high fluxes of pulsed non-thermal hard X-ray emission. While this MeV pulsar population includes some radio-loud pulsars like the Crab, a
Status of space-based gamma-ray astronomy
Gamma-ray observations give us a direct view into the most extreme environments of the universe. They help us to study astronomical particle accelerators as supernovae remnants, pulsars, active


Fermi-LAT and WMAP Observations of the Puppis A Supernova Remnant
We report the detection of GeV γ-ray emission from the supernova remnant (SNR) Puppis A with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope. Puppis A is among the faintest SNRs yet detected at GeV energies,
