Pulsar Wind Nebulae and Unidentified Galactic TeV Sources

We review properties of Galactic VHE sources detected at TeV energies. The number of associations between the VHE sources and pulsars has grown in recent years, making pulsar-wind nebulae the dominant population, although there is still a substantial number of VHE sources which remain to be identified. Among the latter there are several “dark” sources which do not have plausible counterparts at any other wavelengths. In this review we compile and compare the TeV and X-ray properties of pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe), PWN candidates, and unidentified TeV sources. Read more here.
