Jordan Goodman, Maryland, "Results from the first year of the HAWC Gamma Ray Observatory"
KICP colloquium: May 11 @ 3:30 PM, ERC 161
The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Gamma-ray Observatory in the high mountains of Mexico was completed in March of 2015 and is now giving us a new view of the TeV sky. HAWC is 15 times more sensitive than the previous generation of widefield EAS gamma-ray instruments and is able to detect the Crab nebula at >6σ with each daily transit.
