Title: Discovery of high and very high-energy emission from the BL Lacertae object SHBL J001355.9–185406

Abstract

In this paper, the detection of the high-frequency peaked BL Lac object (HBL) SHBL J001355.9–185406 (z = 0.095) at high (HE; 100 MeV < E < 300 GeV) and very high-energy (VHE; E > 100 GeV) with the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) and the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) is reported. Dedicated observations were performed with the H.E.S.S. telescopes, leading to a detection at the 5.5σ significance level. The measured flux above 310 GeV is (8.3 ± 1.7 stat ± 1.7 sys) × 10 -13 photons cm -2 s -1 (about 0.6% of that of the Crab Nebula), and the power-law spectrum has a photon index of Γ = 3.4 ± 0.5 stat ± 0.2 sys. Using 3.5 years of publicly available Fermi-LAT data, a faint counterpart has been detected in the LAT data at the 5.5σ significance level, with an integrated flux above 300 MeV of (9.3 ± 3.4 stat ± 0.8 sys) × 10 -10 photons cm -2 s -1 and a photon index of Γ = 1.96 ± 0.20 stat ± 0.08 sys. X-ray observations with Swift-XRT allow the synchrotron peak energy in νF ν representation to be located at ~1.0 keV. The broadband spectral energymore » distribution is modelled with a one-zone synchrotronself-Compton (SSC) model and the optical data by a black-body emission describing the thermal emission of the host galaxy. Lastly, the derived parameters are typical of HBLs detected at VHE, with a particle-dominated jet.« less
