Mrk 501 is the third TeV blazar with a known GeV component. Previous multiwavelength campaigns on Mrk 501 showed well correlated outbursts at x-ray and TeV energies with no significant activity at GeV energies. We present here new evidence suggesting GeV outbursts in Mrk 501 when the spectrum appears to be extremely hard. However, this outburst appears uncorrelated with emission at x-ray energies. The resulting spectral energy distribution suggests a sharp cut off in the high-energy emission beyond a few hundred GeV. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The blazar Mrk421 was observed independently, but contemporaneously, in 2005 at TeV energies by MAGIC, the Whipple 10 m telescope, and by a single VERITAS telescope during the construction phase of operations. A comparison of the time averaged spectra, in what was a relatively quiescent state,...

    The low-frequency peaked BL Lac object 3C 66A was the subject of an extensive multi-wavelength campaign from July 2003 till April 2004, which included quasi-simultaneous observations at optical, X-rays and very high energy gamma-rays. Here we apply the hadronic Synchrotron-Proton Blazar (SPB)...

    Spectral Energy Distributions of large scale jets associated with three gamma-ray blazars have been obtained using Chandra and HST with the aim of comparing physical conditions in jets at different scales. New X-ray spectra for the blazar cores have also been derived. Modeling for each object...

    Aims. We use a sample of 83 core-dominated active galactic nuclei (AGN) selected from the MOJAVE (Monitoring of Jets in AGN with VLBA Experiments) radio-flux-limited sample and detected with the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) to study the relations between non-simultaneous radio, optical, and...

    Context. Blazars are radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) with a jet pointing at small angles towards the observer. The overall emitted spectrum is typically non-thermal, and in some cases the emission and/or absorption lines are so faint as to prevent the determination of the redshift based...

Owing to the steeply falling atmospheric background spectrum, events at PeV energies most likely have an extraterrestrial origin. We present the multiwavelength properties of the six...
