Abstract

Low energy gamma radiation was recently detected from the Vela supernova remnant and was attributed to synchrotron emission from high energy electrons. Microwave background photons can scatter from these electrons to give high energy gamma rays. This flux is calculated and found to agree with observation.

Key words: gamma rays: theory – ISM: supernova remnants – Vela SNR
