We present new radio observations of the recently identified, young Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) RX J0852.0-4622 (G266.2-01.2) made at 1.40 GHz with a resolution of 14.9 arcmin. These results, along with other radio observations from the literature, are used to derive the extent, morphology and radio spectrum of the remnant. The possible age and distance to this remnant are discussed, along with the consequences of its properties - especially its low radio surface brightness - for… Expand

Radio continuum observations of the galactic supernova remnant Vela Z (G266.2-1.2)
Abstract We present multi frequency radio-continuum observations of Galactic SNR Vela Z (G266.2-1.2), associated with the prominent X-ray source RX J0852.0-4622 discovered in 1998. Our study of thisExpand
Vela Jr.: Ejecta-Clump Interaction in the Vela Supernova Remnant
The ROSAT source RX J0852.0-4622, or Vela Jr., superposed on the Vela supernova remnant, has been iden- tified as a separate young supernova remnant based on its shell-like appearance in X-ray > 1.3Expand
Prediction of the diffuse neutrino flux from cosmic ray interactions near supernova remnants
Abstract In this paper, we present high-energy neutrino spectra from 21 Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs), derived from gamma-ray measurements in the GeV–TeV range. We find that only the strongestExpand
A new model for Vela Jr. Supernova Remnant
Abstract We consider Vela Jr. as being the old Supernova Remnant (SNR) at the beginning of the transition from adiabatic to radiative stage of evolution. According to our model, Vela Jr. is situatedExpand
A method for computing synchrotron and inverse-Compton emission from hydrodynamic simulations of supernova remnants
The observational signature of supernova remnants (SNRs) is very complex, in terms of both their geometrical shape and their spectral properties, dominated by non-thermal synchrotron andExpand
Supernova Remnants at High Energy
Many shell supernova remnants are now known to radiate synchrotron X-rays. Several objects have also been detected in TeV gamma rays. Nonthermal X-rays and gamma rays can be produced in shellExpand
Non-Thermal Photon Emission from Shell-Type Supernova Remnants
We study the non-thermal photon emission from shell-type supernova remnants (SNRs) in the frame of a two-zone model. In this model, the sites of acceleration, escape and subsequent radiation ofExpand
