X-ray emission from very high energy gamma-ray sources [Horns]

  1. 1. Bologna May '07SIMBOL X Workshop X-ray emission from GALACTIC very high energy (E>100 GeV) gamma-ray sources Dieter Horns University of Tübingen ● X-Ray/VHE connection ● Categories of X-ray counterparts of VHE sources ● Examples: What we will learn from SIMBOL X observations

  3. 3. Bologna May '07SIMBOL X Workshop X-ray counterparts of VHE sources ● Current catalogue of VHE sources >40 sources (more to come). ● Suggested categories of X-ray counterparts I. Fx /FVHE >1, RX /RVHE ~ 1(shell type SNR, PWNe) II. Fx /FVHE <1, RX /RVHE <1 (PWNe & candidates) III.Fx /FVHE >1, point-like, variable (e.g. XRBs, Blazars) IV.Fx /FVHE <1, RX /RVHE ~1 (unknown)
