Escape-limited maximum energy at perpendicular shocks in the interstellar magnetic field
July 29, 2021
We investigate the maximum energy limited by the escape from a perpendicular shock region of a spherical shock in the interstellar medium (ISM), and the size of the rapid acceleration region. The perpendicular shock in supernova remnants (SNRs) has been expected to be PeVatrons without a magnetic field amplification in the upstream region. We perform test particle simulations, showing that the escape-limited maximum energy in the perpendicular shock is about a few 10TeV for the typical type Ia SNRs.
