Second-order Fermi acceleration as the origin of the Fermi bubbles

Abstract:

Gamma-ray data from Fermi-LAT show a bi-lobular structure extending up to 50°above and below the Galactic centre, coincident with a possibly related structure in the ROSAT X-ray map which presumably originated in some energy release close to the centre a few million years ago. It has been argued that the gamma-rays arise due to inverse Compton scattering of relativistic electrons accelerated at plasma shocks present in the bubbles. We explore the alternative possibility that the relativistic ...
