Radio Sources Toward the Unknown Gamma-Ray Sky

Thursday December 5, 2019
2:00 pm


 Presenter:  Seth Bruzewski (UNM)
 Series:  Center for Astrophysics Research and Technologies Seminar Series
 Abstract:  Over the course of the previous decade, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has opened a critical new window into the very highest energy regime of the electromagnetic spectrum, allowing for the identification of extreme astrophysical phenomena which are of note to astronomers working at any frequency. It also poses one of astronomy’s greatest puzzles: nearly one-third of the sources Fermi has cataloged have no identifiable counterpart at any other wavelength. The very existence of Fermi’s unassociated sources makes the gamma-ray sky perhaps the least understood in all of astronomy. The radio regime has thus far provided a quite powerful tool toward the analysis of these sources, and so this talk will discuss previous and ongoing efforts seeking to provide new identifications and associations for the gamma-ray sky.
