[68.06] Very High Energy Observations of Pulsars

R. Srinivasan (Purdue U.), Whipple Collaboration

The pursuit of Very High Energy (VHE) astrophysics (E\ge 100 GeV) has resulted in the discovery of seven sources, of which three are associated with young spin-powered pulsars, namely, Crab Nebula, Vela pulsar and PSR B1706-44. We report here on the results of the periodic analysis on pulsars, in the VHE energy range, observed with the 10m gamma ray telescope at Whipple Observatory located on Mt. Hopkins, Arizona.
