The southern supernova remnant (SNR) W28 was observed in 1994 and 1995 by the CANGAROO 3.8m telescope in a search for multi-TeV gamma ray emission, using the Cˇerenkov imaging technique. We obtained upper limits for a variety of point-like and extended features within a ±1° region and briefly discuss these results, together with that of EGRET within the framework of a shock acceleration model of the W28 SNR. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Supernova remnants (SNR) can be broadly classified into two types: plerionic or plasma-filled SNR, like the Crab Nebula, and shell-type SNR, like Cassiopeia A (Cas A). VHE observations of the Crab Nebula and Cas A made with the CAT atmospheric Cherenkov imaging telescope are used to constrain...

    We investigate the physics of particle acceleration at non-relativistic shocks exploiting two different and complementary approaches, namely a semi-analyticmodeling of cosmic-ray modified shocks and large hybrid (kinetic protons/fluid electrons) simulations. The former technique allows us to...

    Supernova remnants (SNRs) are believed to be the sources of hadronic Cosmic-Rays (CRs). During its five years of life, the AGILE γ-ray satellite observed several SNRs, collecting a great amount of data together with the Fermi satellite. Two middle-aged SNRs, W28 and W44, are very interesting...

    Context. The observations of the synchrotron emission from the supernova remnant (SNR) SN 1006 indicate a bilateral morphology, which is mainly characterized by two opposite bright limbs with knots and filaments along the boundary of the remnant. The morphology is not strictly circular with...
