Very High Energy Gamma Ray Group

Welcome to the homepage of the Very High Energy (VHE) Gamma Ray Astronomy Group based at the University of Durham, UK.

The group investigates the sources of gamma rays coming from objects far out in space such as neutron stars, white dwarfs, pulsars, X-ray binary systems, supernova remnants and active galactic nuclei.

At various times over the last thirty years the group has operated telescopes in the USA, the Canary Islands and Australia.

The group is one of the founder members of the Cherenkov Telescope Array collaboration, which is building telescopes for deployment in La Palma in the Canary Islands and Paranal in Chile. This facility will allow us to study gamma ray astrophysics to greater precision than ever before.
