Diffuse Galactic gamma ray flux at very high energy

26 Apr 2018 Lipari Paolo Vernetto Silvia

The observation of the diffuse Galactic gamma ray flux is the most powerful tool to study cosmic rays in different regions of the Galaxy, because the energy and angular distributions of the photons encode information about the density and spectral shape of relativistic particles in the entire Milky Way. An open problem of fundamental importance is whether cosmic rays in distant regions of the Milky Way have the same spectral shape observed at the Earth or not... (read more)
