HAWC Observation of Supernova Remnants and Pulsar Wind Nebulae

The majority of Galactic TeV gamma-ray sources are pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) and supernova remnants (SNRs), and the most common association for unidentified sources is PWN. Many of these sources were discovered in TeV by imaging air Cherenkov telescopes using overlapping pointed observations over sections of the Galactic plane. The HAWC observatory is a survey type instrument in the Northern hemisphere with an energy range of 100 GeV to 100 TeV. Preliminary analysis of data recorded with the partially completed HAWC array taken since 2013 shows extended detections that are coincident with known TeV SNRs and PWNe. The full array became operational in early 2015 and has been steadily surveying the Northern sky since. I will discuss detections in HAWC data taken since 2013 associated with PWNe and SNRs.
