Recent Observations of IC443 with the Whipple 10m Telescope


We present here the results of recent observations made with the Whipple 10m imaging Cherenkov telescope of the region of the supernova remnant IC443. No evidence for gamma‐ray emission was found, and we obtain an upper limit above 500 GeV (99.9% confidence) of 0.6 × 10−7 ph m−2 s−1 (0.11 Crab) at the location of the recently identified X‐ray plerion nebula and 0.8 × 10−7 ph m−2 s−1 (0.14 Crab) at the site of the OH maser at the densest part of the molecular cloud.
