STACEE Observation of Low-Frequency Peaked BL Lac Objects


We present the analysis and results of recent high-energy gamma-ray observations of two low frequency-peaked BL Lac objects, 3C 66A and W Comae, made with Solar Tower Atmospheric Cherenkov Effect Experiment (STACEE). The 3C 66A observations were part of an extensive multiwavelength campaign in 2003-2004. STACEE’s sensitivity to astrophysical sources at a lower energy range (100 - 500 GeV) allows it to explore LBLs, with their synchrotron peaks at lower energies than HBLs. Detection of > 100 GeV emission from LBLs is potentially interesting as it would open the door to a new class of objects for TeV astrono
