Abstract

The region around PSR B1706–44 has been observed with the HESS imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in 2003. No evidence for γ-ray emission in the TeV range was found at the pulsar position or at the radio arc which corresponds to the supernova remnant G 343.1–2.3. The 99% confidence level flux upper limit at the pulsar position is ( assuming a power law () with photon index of and ( without an assumption on the spectral shape. The reported upper limits correspond to 8% of the flux from an earlier detection by the CANGAROO experiment.
