Session 9 - High-Energy Phenomena.
Display session, Monday, June 08
We present observations at 13cm and 20cm made with the Australia Telescope Compact Array of the plerion candidate in the error box of the \gamma-ray source GeV 1417-6100 (2EGS J1418-6049). These images reveal a non-thermal, rabbit-shaped enhancement associated with an extended hard X-ray source seen with ASCA. This is at the edge of an unusual shell structure; the shell has broad wing-like extensions, also with associated diffuse X-ray emission. We present results of spectral and polarization studies, describe the compact sources in the images, and comment on the possibility of the Rabbit being a plerion hosting a radio-quiet \gamma-ray pulsar.
