Abstract content

MGRO J1908+06 is an unidentified bright TeV source. It has been proposed to be one of the most likely neutrino sources. However, no counterpart of MGRO J1908+06 has been detected at other wavelengths, and its nature remains unknown. PSR J1907+0602 is a 106.6 ms gamma-ray pulsar with high spin down power (∼ 2.8×10^36 erg/s) and is spatially associated with MGRO J1908+06. By analyzing Fermi/LAT and multi-wavelength data, we explore the possibility of MGRO J1908+06 being a PWN powered by PSR J1907+0602.
