Invited Presentation

Exploring the Gamma-ray skies with the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and the Fermi Asian Network (FAN)

Author(s): Albert Kong (National Tsing Hua University)

Presenter: Albert Kong (National Tsing Hua University)

With the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi) in mid-2008, we have entered a new era of high-energy astrophysics. At National Tsing Hua University, we are leading an effort of the Fermi Asian Network (FAN) to study exotic astrophysical objects using the Large Area Telescope (20MeV-300GeV) onboard Fermi. We are the first non-NASA led Fermi team to publish papers in a regular basis using Fermi data. In this talk, I will review some of our important discoveries including gamma-ray emission of globular clusters, the discovery of gamma-rays associated with a newly born millisecond pulsar, the first study using Fermi of a gamma-ray binary, multi-wavelength studies of unidentified Fermi objects, discoveries of new gamma-ray sources, and gamma-ray pulsation search of millisecond pulsars. I will also describe some of the future activities.
