The HAWC Gamma-Ray Observatory

Stefan Westerhoff, Professor, Department of Physics, UW-Madison, introduces us to the next generation gamma ray detector at the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Observatory in Puebla, Mexico. The HAWC is a large field of view instrument capable of continuously monitoring the northern sky at energies between roughly 100 GeV and 100 TeV, the highest gamma-ray energies observed so far.
