From Radio to TeV : The surprising Spectral Energy Distribution of AP Librae

mis à jour le

La seconde publication sur le noyau actif de galaxie Ap Librae a été acceptée par le journal MNRAS. Ce travail étend le premier ( en modélisant l’émission de cette source de la radio au TeV. Cette publication est le fruit du travail de D. Sanchez au LAPP

Following the discovery of high-energy (HE ; E>10MeV) and very-high-energy (VHE ; E>100GeV) γ-ray emission from the low-frequency-peaked BL Lac (LBL) object AP Librae, its electromagnetic spectrum is studied over 60 octaves in energy. Contemporaneous data in radio, optical and UV together with the γ-ray data are used to construct the most precise spectral energy distribution of this source. The data have been found to be modeled with difficulties with single zone homogeneous leptonic synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) radiative scenarios due to the unprecedented width of the high-energy component when compared to the lower-energy component. The two other LBL objects also detected at VHE appear to have similar modeling difficulties. Nevertheless, VHE γ rays produced in the extended jet could account for the VHE flux observed by H.E.S.S. this paper can be found on the ArXiV server
