Welcome to Gamma Ray Astrophysics group!

The VERITAS group at the University College Dublin is part of the VERITAS collaboration, operates the most sensitive instrument to detect very-high energy gamma-rays in the Northern Hemisphere.

Gamma ray astrophysics, the branch of high energy astrophysics that studies the sky in energetic γ-ray photons, is destined to play a crucial role in the exploration of nonthermal phenomena in the Universe in their most extreme and violent forms. The great potential of this discipline offers impressive coverage of many "hot topics" of modern astrophysics and cosmology, such as the origin of galactic and extragalactic cosmic rays, particle acceleration and radiation processes under extreme astrophysical conditions, and the search for dark matter.
