Abstract
Fermi has detected over 200 pulsars above 100 MeV. In a previous work, using 3 years of LAT data (1FHL catalog) we reported that 28 of these pulsars show emission above 10 GeV; only three of these, however, were millisecond pulsars (MSPs). The recently-released Third Catalog of Hard Fermi-LAT Sources (3FHL) contains over 1500 sources showing emission above 10 GeV, 17 of which are associated with gamma-ray MSPs. Using three times as much data as in our previous study (1FHL), we report on a systematic analysis of these pulsars to determine the highest energy (pulsed) emission fromMSPs and discuss the best possible candidates for follow-up observations with ground-based TeV instruments (H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS, and the upcoming CTA).
