VLBA Observations of TeV Blazars

B. Glenn Piner (Whittier College) and Philip G. Edwards (CSIRO)

This is an archive of all of the VLBA data that we have obtained on TeV-emitting HBLs during the course of our research program. This archive contains data beginning with observations of Markarian 421 in 1994, and continuing to the present.

Links are provided to both the associated postscript image and to the final data files output from Difmap (the .fits, .mod or .mtab, .par, .uvf, and .win files). The Difmap output files are provided as a single gzipped tar file. Loading the .par file into Difmap and executing "mappl cln" or "mappl pcln" should reproduce the linked postscript image.

Links are also provided to the TeVCat entry for each source, and to the paper where the VLBA image or any associated measurements or analysis are published. The papers on our VLBA observations of TeV HBLs are (in reverse chronological order):

  1. Piner & Edwards, 2014, Astrophysical Journal, submitted
  2. Piner & Edwards, 2013, EPJ Web of Conferences, 61, 4021, arXiv:1309.2327
  3. Tiet, Piner, & Edwards, 2012, 2012 Fermi & Jansky Proceedings, arXiv:1205.2399
  4. Piner, Pant, & Edwards, 2010, Astrophysical Journal, 723, 1150
  5. Piner, Pant, Edwards, & Wiik, 2009, Astrophysical Journal Letters, 690, L31
  6. Piner, Pant, & Edwards, 2008, Astrophysical Journal, 678, 64
  7. Piner & Edwards, 2005, Astrophysical Journal, 622, 168
  8. Piner & Edwards, 2004, Astrophysical Journal, 600, 115
  9. Edwards & Piner, 2002, Astrophysical Journal Letters, 579, L67
  10. Piner, et al., 1999, Astrophysical Journal, 525, 176

Note that some of the above papers also used additional VLBI data for their kinematics analysis, such as data from the 2cm Survey, the RDV experiment series, geodetic VLBI data, or Space VLBI data from VSOP. Such supplemental data are not included in the table below.

If you make use of any of these data, please let us know (gpiner@whittier.edu; Philip.Edwards@csiro.au).
