Our first ALTO paper, concerning how we analyse the Monte Carlo simulations, is accepted for publication in JINST and is now visible on arxiv at this link. Our method can be useful also for other ground-based gamma-ray observatories using particle detectors. We also make first considerations on the utility of the primary and secondary detectors….
Friday’s joy! Our first peer-reviewed ALTO paper has been accepted for publication in JINST (@sissa, @IOPPublishing) and it will be available Open Access thanks to the DISA centre at Linnaeus University. Arxiv version visible on Monday, May 17, 2021. 💫🍾
Hej! Take a look to our latest paper: https://academic.oup.com/mnras/article/494/4/5590/5824174 where we publish the VHE emission from KUV 00311-1930 and from PKS 1440-389 with H.E.S.S. data. We also analyse lower-energy data and combine with existing observations to constrain the distance of the two sources. Happy reading!
Today is a very exciting day for extragalactic gamma-ray astronomy! The H.E.S.S. and MAGIC Collaborations have detected VHE gamma rays from Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB) for the first time. This of course has tremendous consequences, because this means that such detections are possible even at extreme energies, and so we might expect many more in…
Hej! Big Data 2019 at Linnéuniversitetet is approaching. Invited speakers, Fast-Forward sessions and a cool tutorial in Open Science! Come and mingle with the Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) people 😉 All the information about the event can be found at this page.
Hej! We are looking for Master thesis students in Physics and in Computer Science. Please refer to this page, for more information.
And the winner of the Open Science Hackathon at Linnéuniversitetet in Växjö is… the A-team! The only team that for 24 hours got deep into the ALTO prototype data! There were 8 teams, 3 of them started to look at our data but two dropped our case, therefore in the end 7 teams looked at…
Hej! On the 6th-7th of April 2019, the Big Data Hackathon will take place for 24h. This event promotes open source and open science. The first pre-Hackaton event is taking place on Fri, March 22, 2019, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM CET at the Videum Science Park, Framtidsvägen 18, 352 22 Växjö.
Hej! We are organizing a Big Data Hackathon in the framework of DISA together with other networks in the Växjö and Kalmar areas for the April 6-7 (Saturday/Sunday). There will also be Astroparticle Physics datasets and themes! More information will follow.
Hej! We are starting a new web activity to communicate our research to the outside world. We had an old blog located here: https://blogg.lnu.se/vhegg/, but we decided to have a new dedicated and more flexible web space. We will try to update this page as often as possible and, in the meanwhile, welcome to the…
