The source 3EG J1835+5918 was discovered early in the CGRO mission by EGRET as a bright unidentified γ-ray source outside the galactic plane. Especially remarkable, it has not been possible to identify this object with any known counterpart in any other wavelengths band since then. Analyzing our recent ROSAT HRI observation, for the first time we are able to suggest X-ray counterparts of 3EG J1835+5918. The discovered X-ray sources were subject of deep optical investigations in order to reveal their nature and conclude on the possibility of being counterparts for this peculiar γ-ray source. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We explore the possibility, within the polar cap model, that at least some of the recently identified new population of EGRET sources in the Gould Belt sources are γ-ray pulsars, viewed at large angles to the magnetic axis, such that the line-of-sight misses both the bright gamma-ray double...

    As noted in the Third EGRET Catalog, six sources near the bright Vela pulsar are thought to be artifacts: 3EG J0824-4610, 3EG J0827-4247, 3EG J0828-4954, 3EG J0841- 4356, 3EG J0848-4429, and 3EG J0859-4257. This conclusion is based on analysis of phase-resolved maps of the pulsar region. The...

    The Parkes multibeam pulsar survey is a deep search of the Galactic plane for pulsars. It uses a 13-beam receiver system operating at 1.4 GHz on the 64-m Parkes radio telescope. It has much higher sensitivity than any previous similar survey and is finding large numbers of previously unknown...

    The third EGRET catalog lists 84 sources within 10° of the Galactic Plane. Five of these are well-known spin-powered pulsars, 2 and possibly 3 others are blazars, and the remaining 74 are classified as unidentified, although 6 of these are likely to be artifacts of nearby strong sources....
