We report the detection, with the CANGAROO-III imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescope array, of a very high energy gamma-ray signal from the unidentified gamma-ray source HESS J1614-518, which was discovered in the H.E.S.S. Galactic plane survey. Diffuse gamma-ray emission was detected above 760GeV at the 8.9σ level during an effective exposure of 54hr from 2008 May to August. The spectrum can be represented by a power law: (8.2 ± 2.2stat ±2.5sys) × 10-12 × (E/1 TeV)-γcm-2s-1 TeV-1 with a...[Show more]
