Physics Department Colloquium
Very-high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics with HAWC
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Ignacio Taboada, Georgia Tech
Abstract: HAWC is a second generation ground detector searching for in TeV gamma-rays. HAWC is special because of its instantaneous very wide field of view (2 steradians, similar to a human eye) and because it operated continuously. This makes HAWC an ideal survey detector and complements point/dark time only operation of more sensitive air Cherenkov telescopes such as VERITAS. In its first 17 month of operation HAWC has detected ~40 sources, mostly in our own galaxy, including pulsar wind nebula, supernova remnants, unidentified objects, etc. In this colloquium I’ll discuss initial HAWC results as well as a search for counterpart TeV gamma-ray objects responsible for IceCube’s neutrinos.
