    • Abstract

       

      Based on the traditional Synchrotron Self-Compton (SSC) model, we consider a secondary γ -ray emission component to an extreme blazar 1ES 0229 + 200 for the multiwavelength radiation. By assuming a suitable electron spectra and Inter-Galactic Magnetic Field (IGMF), we obtained excellent fits to observed spectra of the source. This indicated that the observed excess GeV 𝛾-rays emission can be explained by secondary 𝛾-rays produced through inverse Compton scattering of 𝑒± pairs against Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) photons.

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
