[27.03] A Search for Gamma Ray Emission from Binary Systems

Tony Hall (Purdue University), Whipple Collaboration

Pulsars in binaries represent one class of object where one may expect to find the conditions necessary to achieve the required acceleration needed to produce extremely energetic photons. Recent reports of binaries at very high energies (Centaurus X-3, Be1259-63) have sparked a new interest in such systems. We present the results from the Whipple air Cherenkov telescope search for high energy photons (E > 350GeV) emitted from pulsars in binaries. Our results will then be compared to the various models that allow for the emission of very high energy photons.
