A Detailed Study of the Interstellar Protons toward the TeV gamma-Ray SNR RX J0852.0-4622 (G266.2-1.2, Vela Jr.): The Third Case of the gamma-Ray and ISM Spatial Correspondence

We present a new analysis of the interstellar protons toward the TeV γ-ray SNR RX J0852.0−4622 (G266.2−1.2, Vela Jr.). We used the NANTEN2 12CO(J = 1–0) and Australia Telescope Compact Array and Parkes H i data sets in order to derive the molecular and atomic gas associated with the TeV γ-ray shell of the SNR. We find that atomic gas over a velocity range from V LSR = −4 to 50 km s−1 or 60 km s−1 is associated with the entire SNR, while molecular gas is associated with a limited portion of the...[Show more]
