The ARGO-YBJ experiment is an Extensive Air Shower detector which combines high altitude location (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300 m a.s.l.) and full coverage with Resistive Plate Counters, resulting in an energy threshold of a few hundred GeV. The large eld of view (2 sr) and high duty cycle allow the continuous monitoring of the Northern sky, searching for unknown sources and unpredictable events, such as ares in blazar emissions or high energy Gamma Ray Bursts. In this paper we will present some results obtained in gamma-ray astronomy with the ARGO-YBJ experiment.

Abstract

The ARGO-YBJ experiment is an Extensive Air Shower detector which combines high altitude location (Tibet, P.R. China, 4300 m a.s.l.) and full coverage with Resistive Plate Counters, resulting in an energy threshold of a few hundred GeV. The large eld of view (2 sr) and high duty cycle allow the continuous monitoring of the Northern sky, searching for unknown sources and unpredictable events, such as ares in blazar emissions or high energy Gamma Ray Bursts. In this paper we will present some results obtained in gamma-ray astronomy with the ARGO-YBJ experiment.
