Search for synchrotron emission from secondary leptons in dense cold starless cores

Jones, D I; Protheroe, Raymond; Crocker, Roland


We report radio continuum observations with the Australia Telescope Compact Array of two molecular clouds. The impetus for these observations is a search for synchrotron radiation by cosmic-ray secondary electrons/positrons in a region of enhanced density and possibly high magnetic field. We present modelling which shows that there should be an appreciable flux of synchrotron above the more diffuse, galactic synchrotron background. The starless core G333.1250.562 and infrared source...[Show more]
