Zusammenfassung
The H.E.S.S. detector is an array of atmospheric-Cherenkov telescopes dedicated to the observation of very high energy (VHE)γ-rays. Situated in Namibia, the full four-telescope array is operational since December 2003. Among many types of targets, the H.E.S.S. collaboration is studying pulsar wind nebulae (PWN) in the VHE γ-ray domain. These objects can produce VHE emission by the inverse Compton process, whereby relativistic electrons and positrons in the shocked pulsar wind interact with lower-energy ambient photons. The PWN inside MSH15-52, G0.9+0.1 and near the Vela pulsar have been observed by H.E.S.S. since 2004. The results of these observations are reported here.
