The Southern Wide-field Gamma-ray Observatory (SWGO)

While in the northern hemisphere the survey conducted by the HAWC gamma-ray observatory significantly enriched our knowledge on TeV gamma-ray sources, there is not such a facility in the Southern hemisphere yet. The MPIK is involved in the development of a next-generation gamma-ray survey observatory in the southern hemisphere. This project is in an early phase in which the technical implementation is being assessed.
