Gamma-ray Astronomy


In gamma-ray astronomy, we study the Universe using photons with the highest energies. Such photons reach us from regions where some of the most violent processes in the Universe take place, accelerating particles to extremely high energies. This includes e.g. the center of the Milky Way, which hosts a super-massive black hole, but also the remnants of supernova explosions or much more distant objects, like active galactic nuclei.


Gamma-ray emission from the Galactic Center region measured with H.E.S.S. (Nature 531, 476 (2016)).


At ECAP, we are involved in a variety of current and planned experiments. For more details, please visit these sub-pages:
