Blazars are potential neutrino emitters as suggested by the detection of a high-energy neutrino in the direction of the flaring Blazar TXS 0506+056, in 2017.

Abstract

Blazars are potential neutrino emitters as suggested by the detection of a high-energy neutrino in the direction of the flaring Blazar TXS 0506+056, in 2017. However, the origin of neutrinos from this source is still unclear. This work aims at finding and characterizing other Blazars with similar features as TXS 0506+056. We selected sources from the most recent Fermi Catalogue, the 4LAC, finding 4 candidates. They were characterized through a multiwavelength analysis, which revealed some peculiarities in the SED of the candidates.
