MY RESEARCH ACTIVITY
My research activity is in the field of High Energy Astrophysics. The subjects I am mainly interested in are:
More than 100 years after discovery (Hess, 1912), Cosmic Rays (CR) still offer vast grounds for investigation....More
These objects are born in the violent explosions that accompany stellar death. They have been implied for more than 80 years to be the main sources of accelerated particles in the Galaxy. But only in recent times direct evidence of this connection has started accumulating...More
This special kind of Supernova Remnants host a fast spinning, highly magnetized neutron star which continuously inputs energy in its surrounding in the form of a magnetized relativistic wind. The latter gives then rise to spectacular non-thermal nebulae....More
You can find more on these subjects (and a few additional ones), and learn about the research carried out by our group on each of them, by visiting the Arcetri High Energy Astrophysics Group research page.
