High-energy gamma-ray emission is theoretically expected to arise in tight binary star systems (with high mass loss and high-velocity winds), although the evidence of this relationship has proven to be elusive so far. Here we present the first bounds on this putative emission from isolated Wolf-Rayet (WR) star binaries, WR 147 and WR 146, obtained from observations with the MAGIC telescope.

Abstract

High-energy gamma-ray emission is theoretically expected to arise in tight binary star systems (with high mass loss and high-velocity winds), although the evidence of this relationship has proven to be elusive so far. Here we present the first bounds on this putative emission from isolated Wolf-Rayet (WR) star binaries, WR 147 and WR 146, obtained from observations with the MAGIC telescope.
