Low Surface Brightness Optical Emission as a Probe of Cosmic Ray Reservoirs
July 23, 2019
New techniques for detecting low surface brightness optical features are emerging that are enabling previous impossible observations. We briefly discuss the basis for this new approach that employs arrays of telephoto lenses and describe an array that is nearing completion at Los Alamos National Laboratory. We then explore the case for fossil cosmic-ray electron reservoirs in places where the traditional signatures of current activity are not present and discuss how optical inverse Compton emission can be used to search for fossil reservoirs.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
