Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The TAIGA hybrid gamma-ray observatory is currently being developed in the Tunka Valley, 50 km from Lake Baikal, to study gamma radiation and charged cosmic ray fluxes in the 1013–1018 eV range. The first results are presented for detecting gamma rays from the Crab Nebula in 44 h of observation, and from the blazar Markarian 421 in 62 h of observation with a significance of around 5–6 σ by one of the TAIGA IACT telescopes.
