The first pulsed VHE gamma rays were discovered by MAGIC in 2008 (Aliu et al. 2008). The spectrum was extended above 100 GeV by VERITAS (Aliu et al. 2011), up to 400 GeV by MAGIC (Aleksi´c et al. 2012) and very recently up to TeV energies (Zanin 2014). Pulsed VHE gamma rays may be due to IC scattering. Recently, also pulsed emission from the Vela pulsar was reported by HESS (Brun 2014), although the emission mechanism remains unclear. • SNRs SNRs are the leftovers of Supernova (SN) explosions. CRs get accelerated through the Fermi mechanism in the shock that develops when the SN ejecta interact with the ISM.

3) where γ is the Lorentz factor of the leptons. Photons emitted in the Thomson regime follow the spectral shape of the seed photons, whereas those in the Klein–Nishina regime suffer a very sharp cut-off due to relativistic effects. 3 Synchrotron Radiation It is produced when ultrarelativistic electrons are accelerated in a magnetic field. The electrons trace spirals around the magnetic field lines. The emitted photons peak at an energy E max = 5 × 10−9 B⊥ γ 2 , where B⊥ is the magnetic field perpendicular to the electrons movement and γ is the Lorentz factor of the electrons.
