Title: Detection of variable VHE γ -ray emission from the extra-galactic γ -ray binary LMC P3

Abstract

Context. Recently, the high-energy (HE, 0.1–100 GeV) γ-ray emission from the object LMC P3 in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) has been discovered to be modulated with a 10.3-day period, making it the first extra-galactic γ-ray binary. Aim. This work aims at the detection of very-high-energy (VHE, >100 GeV) γ-ray emission and the search for modulation of the VHE signal with the orbital period of the binary system. Methods. LMC P3 has been observed with the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.); the acceptance-corrected exposure time is 100 h. The data set has been folded with the known orbital period of the system in order to test for variability of the emission. Results. VHE γ-ray emission is detected with a statistical significance of 6.4 σ. The data clearly show variability which is phase-locked to the orbital period of the system. Periodicity cannot be deduced from the H.E.S.S. data set alone. The orbit-averaged luminosity in the 1–10 TeV energy range is (1.4 ± 0.2) × 1035 erg s-1. A luminosity of (5 ± 1) × 1035 erg s-1 is reached during 20% of the orbit. HE and VHE γ-ray emissions are anti-correlated. In conclucion, LMC P3 is the most luminous γ-ray binarymore » known so far.« less

Fig. 1 Fig. 1: Folded γ-ray light curves with orbital phase zero at the maximum of the HE γ-ray emission (MJD 57410.25). For better readability two orbits are shown. The black points (left y-axis) represent the VHE light curve (this work), the grey points (right y-axis) represent the HE light curve (frommore » Corbet et al. 2016, , Fig. 3). Error bars represent 1σ statistical uncertainty. For the phase bins without significant detection, upper limits (at 95% confidence level) are given. The labels at the data points indicate the statistical significance of the excess in each phase bin. The blue horizontal lines denote the upper limit (at 95% confidence level) on the flux in the off-peak region (orbital phase 0.4 to 1.2).« less
