Search for High Energy Gamma-rays from CP 1133


SEVERAL proposed models for pulsars, involving shock waves1 and high magnetic fields2,3, suggest the possibility that high energy γ-rays may be emitted by such objects. We have therefore attempted to detect high energy ( 1014 eV), neutral cosmic rays from CP 1133, using the atmospheric Cherenkov technique4.
