ECAP Seminar: Atreya Acharyya

April 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Recent Highlights from the VERITAS AGN Program

VERITAS is one of the world’s most sensitive detectors of astrophysical very high energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) gamma rays. This observatory began full-scale operations in 2007, and more than 8,000 hours of its good-weather observations have been targeted on active galactic nuclei (AGN). Approximately ~250 AGN were observed with VERITAS, many of these as part of a comprehensive program to discover new VHE AGN. VERITAS spectral and variability measurements, and accompanying broadband observations, are key probes of the underlying jet-powered processes in AGN. Recent scientific highlights from the VERITAS AGN discovery program will be presented.
