124%\subsection[1.6]{Summary}
125We propose to set up a robotic imaging air-Cherenkov telescope with low
126cost, but a high performance design for remote operation. The goal is
127the long-term monitoring observations of nearby, bright blazars at very
128high energies. We will (i) search for orbital modulation of the blazar
129emission due to supermassive black hole binaries, (ii) study the
130statistics of flares and their physical origin, and (iii) correlate the
131data with corresponding data from the neutrino observatory IceCube to
132search for evidence of hadronic emission processes. The observations
133will furthermore trigger follow-up observations of flares with higher
134sensitivity telescopes such as MAGIC, \mbox{VERITAS} and H.E.S.S. Joint
135observations with the Whipple monitoring telescope will start a future
136\mbox{24\,h-monitoring} of selected sources with a distributed network of
137robotic telescopes. The telescope design is based on a complete
138technological upgrade of one of the former telescopes of the HEGRA
139collaboration (CT3) still located at the Observatorio del Roque de los
140Muchachos on the Canary Island La Palma (Spain). After this upgrade,
141the telescope will be operated robotically, a much lower energy
142threshold below 350\,GeV will be achieved, and the observation time
143required for gaining the same signal as with CT3 will be reduced by a
144factor of six.

148%\subsection[1.6]{Zusammenfassung}
149Das Ziel unseres Vorhabens ist es, ein abbildendes
150Luft-Cherenkov-Teleskop mit geringen Kosten, aber hoher Leistung f"ur
151den ferngesteuerten Betrieb aufzubauen. Die Motivation ist die
152kontinuierliche Langzeitbeobachtung von hellen, nahen Blazaren bei sehr
153hohen Energien. Mit diesen Beobachtungen werden wir nach
154bahndynamischen Modulationen suchen, welche von Bin"arsystemen
155supermassiver schwarzer L"ocher in der emittierten Strahlung
156hervorgerufen werden. Au"serdem werden die gewonnenen Daten mit den
157entsprechenden Daten des Neutrinoteleskops IceCube korreliert, um nach
158Hinweisen f"ur hadroninduzierte Emissionsprozesse zu suchen. Die
159kontinuierliche "Uberwachung ausgew"ahlter Quellen wird zudem besser
160aufgel"oste Beobachtungen und Nachbeobachtungen von
161Strahlungsausbr"uchen durch Teleskope h"oherer Sensitivit"at, wie z.B.\
162MAGIC, VERITAS und H.E.S.S., erlauben. Die zeitversetzten, gemeinsamen
163Beobachtungen zusammen mit dem Whipple-Teleskop stellen den Beginn
164ununterbrochener Beobachtungen mit einem weltweiten Netzwerk
165robotischer Teleskope dar. Unser Teleskopdesign basiert auf einer
166technischen Runderneuerung eines Teleskops der fr"uheren
167HEGRA-Kollaboration (CT3), welches noch immer am Observatorio del Roque de
168los Muchachos auf der Kanarischen Insel La Palma (Spanien) steht. Nach
169dieser Aufr"ustung wird das Teleskop vollst"andig ferngesteuert
170betrieben werden, eine viel niedrigere Energieschwelle von unter
171350\,GeV erreichen und die Beobachtungszeit, um ein gleichstarkes
172Signal wie mit CT3 zu erhalten, wird um einen Faktor sechs k"urzer
173sein.

179\subsection[2.1]{Science case (Stand der Forschung)}
180
181Since the termination of the HEGRA observations, the succeeding
182experiments MAGIC and H.E.S.S.\ have impressively extended the physical
183scope of gamma-ray astronomy detecting tens of formerly unknown gamma-ray
184sources and analyzing their energy spectra, morphology and
185temporal behavior. This became possible by lowering the energy
186threshold from 700\,GeV to less than 100\,GeV and increasing at the same
187time the sensitivity by a factor of five. A diversity of astrophysical
188source types such as pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants,
189micro-quasars, pulsars, radio galaxies, clusters of galaxies, Gamma-Ray
190Bursts and blazars have been studied with these telescopes.
191
192The main class of extragalactic, very high energy gamma-rays sources
193detected with imaging air-Cherenkov telescopes are blazars, i.e.\
194accreting supermassive black holes exhibiting a relativistic jet that
195is closely aligned with the line of sight. The non-thermal blazar
196spectrum covers up to 20 orders of magnitude in energy, from
198blazars are characterized by rapid variability, high degrees of
199polarization, and superluminal motion of knots in their
201explained assuming relativistic bulk motion and in situ particle
202acceleration, e.g.\ at shock waves, leading to synchrotron
203(radio-to-x-ray) and self-Compton (gamma-ray) emission \citep{Blandford}.
204Additionally, inverse Compton scattering of external photons may play a
205role in producing the observed gamma-rays \citep{Dermer,Begelman}.
206Variability may hold the key to understanding the details of the
207emission processes and the source geometry. The development of
208time-dependent models is currently under investigation
209worldwide.
210
211Although particle acceleration inevitably affects electrons and protons
212(ions), the electrons are commonly believed to be responsible for
213producing the observed emission owing to their lower mass and thus much
214stronger energy losses (at the same energy). The relativistic protons,
215which could either originate from the accretion flow or from entrained
216ambient matter, will quickly dominate the momentum flow of the jet.
217This {\em baryon pollution} has been suggested to solve the energy
218transport problem in Gamma-Ray Bursts and is probably present in
219blazar jets as well, even if they originate as pair jets in a black
220hole ergosphere \citep{Meszaros}. Protons and ions accelerated in the
221jets of blazars can reach extremely high energies, before energy losses
222become important \citep{Mannheim:1993}. Escaping particles contribute
223to the observed flux of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays in a major way.
224Blazars and their unbeamed hosts, the radio galaxies, are thus the
225prime candidates for origin of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays
226\citep{Rachen}. This can be investigated with the IceCube and AUGER
227experiments. Recent results of the AUGER experiment show a significant
228anisotropy of the highest energy cosmic rays and point at either nearby
229AGN or sources with a similar spacial distribution as their origin
230\citep{AUGER-AGN}.
231
232In some flares, a large ratio of the gamma-ray to optical luminosity is
233observed. This is difficult to reconcile with the primary leptonic
234origin of the emission, since the accelerated electron pressure would
235largely exceed the magnetic field pressure. For shock acceleration to
236work efficiently, particles must be confined by the magnetic field for
237a time longer than the cooling time. The problem vanishes in the
238following model: Photo-hadronic interactions of accelerated protons and
239synchrotron photons induce electromagnetic cascades, which in turn
240produce secondary electrons causing high energy synchrotron
241gamma-radiation. This demands much stronger magnetic fields in line
242with magnetic confinement \citep{Mannheim:1995}. Short variability time
243scales can result from dynamical changes of the emission zone, running
244e.g.\ through an inhomogeneous environment.
245
246The contemporaneous spectral energy distributions for hadronic and
247leptonic models bear many similarities, but also marked differences,
248such as multiple bumps which are possible even in a one-zone hadronic
249model \citep{Mannheim:1999}. These properties allow conclusions
250about the accelerated particles. Noteworthy, even for nearby blazars
251the spectrum must be corrected for attenuation of the gamma-rays due to
252pair production in collisions with low-energy photons from the
254Ultimately, the hadronic origin of the emission must be probed with
255correlated gamma-ray and neutrino observations, since the pion decay
256initiating the cascades involves a fixed ratio of electron-positron
257pairs, gamma-rays, and neutrinos. A dedicated monitoring campaign
258jointly with IceCube has the best chance for success. Pilot studies
259done with MAGIC and IceCube indicate that the investigation of neutrino
260event triggered gamma-ray observations are statistically
261inconclusive \citep{Leier:2006}.
262
263The variability time scale of blazars ranges from minutes to months,
264generally showing the largest amplitudes and the shortest time scales
265at the highest energies. Recently, a doubling time scale of two minutes
266has been observed in a flare of Mrk\,501 with the MAGIC telescope
267\citep{Albert:501}. A giant flare of PKS\,2155-304 discovered by
268H.E.S.S.\ \citep{Aharonian:2007pks} has shown similarly short doubling
269time scales and a flux of up to 16 times the flux of the Crab Nebula.
270Indications for TeV flares without evidence for an accompanying x-ray
271flare, coined orphan flares, have been observed, questioning the
272synchrotron-self-Compton mechanism being responsible for the
273gamma-rays. Model ramifications involving several emission components,
274external seed photons, or hadronically induced emission may solve the
275problem \citep{Blazejowski}. Certainly, the database for
276contemporaneous multi-wavelength observations is still far from proving
277the synchrotron-self-Compton model.
278
279Generally, observations of flares are prompted by optical or x-ray
281reflects the non-steady feeding of the jets and the changing interplay
282between particle acceleration and cooling. In this situation,
283perturbations of the electron density or the bulk plasma velocity are
284traveling down the jet. The variability could also reflect the changing
285conditions of the external medium to which the jet flow adapts during
286its passage through it. In fact, a clumpy, highly inhomogeneous
287external medium is typical for active galactic nuclei, as indicated by
288their clumpy emission line regions, if visible against the
289Doppler-enhanced blazar emission. Often the jets bend with a large
290angle indicating shocks resulting from reflections off intervening
291high-density clouds. Changes in the direction of the jet flow lead to
292large flux variations due to differential Doppler boosting.
293
294Helical trajectories, as seen in high-resolution radio maps resulting
295from the orbital modulation of the jet base in supermassive black hole
296binaries, would lead to periodic variability on time scales of months
297to years \citep{Rieger:2007}. Binaries are expected to be the most
298common outcome of the repeated mergers of galaxies which have
299originally built up the blazar host galaxy. Each progenitor galaxy
300brings its own supermassive black hole as expected from the
301Magorrian-Kormendy relations. It is subject to stellar dynamical
302evolution in the core of the merger galaxy, of which only one pair of
303black holes is expected to survive near the center of gravity.
304Supermassive black hole binaries close to coalescence are thus expected
305to be generic in blazars. Angular momentum transport by collective
306stellar dynamical processes is efficient to bring them to distances
307close to where the emission of gravitational waves begins to dominate
308their further evolution until coalescence. Their expected gravitational
309wave luminosity is spectacularly high, even long before final
310coalescence and the frequencies are favorable for the detectors under
311consideration (LISA). The detection of gravitational waves relies on exact
312templates to filter out the signals and the templates can be computed
313from astrophysical constraints on the orbits and masses of the black
314holes. TeV gamma-rays, showing the shortest variability time scales,
315probe deepest into the jet and are thus the most sensitive probe of the
316orbital modulation at the jet base. Relativistic aberration is helpful
317in bringing down the observed periods to below the time scale of years.
318A tentative hint for a 23-day periodicity of the TeV emission from
319Mrk\,501 during a phase of high activity in 1997 was reported by
320HEGRA \citep{Kranich}, and was later confirmed including x-ray and
321Telescope Array data \citep{Osone}. The observations can be explained in
322a supermassive black hole binary scenario \citep{Rieger:2000}.
323Indications for helical trajectories and periodic modulation of optical
324and radio lightcurves on time scales of tens of years have also been
325described in the literature (e.g. \cite{Hong,Merrit}).
326
327To overcome the limitations of biased sampling, a complete monitoring
328database for a few representative bright sources needs to be obtained.
329Space missions with all-sky observations at lower photon energies, such
330as GLAST, GRIPS, or eROSITA, will provide significant multi-wavelength
331exposure simultaneous to the VHE observations, and this is a new
332qualitative step for blazar research. For the same reasons, the VERITAS
333collaboration keeps the Whipple telescope alive. It is obvious that the
334large Cherenkov telescopes such as MAGIC, H.E.S.S.\ or VERITAS are mainly
335used to discover new sources at the sensitivity limit. Thus they will
336not perform monitoring observations of bright sources with complete
337sampling during their visibility. However, these telescopes will be
338triggered by monitoring telescopes and thus improve the described
339investigations. In turn, operating a smaller but robotic telescope is
340an essential and cost-effective contribution to the plans for
341next-generation instruments in ground-based gamma-ray astronomy.
342Know-how for the operation of future networks of robotic Cherenkov
343telescopes, e.g. a monitoring array around the globe or a single-place
344array like CTA, is certainly needed given the high operating shift
345demands of the current installations.
346
347In summary, there are strong reasons to make an effort for the
348continuous monitoring of the few exceptionally bright blazars. This can
349be achieved by operating a dedicated monitoring telescope of the
350HEGRA-type, referred to in the following as DWARF (Dedicated
351multiWavelength Agn Research Facility). Its robotic design will keep
352the demands on personal and infrastructure on the low side, rendering
353it compatible with the resources of University groups. The approach is
354also optimal to educate students in the strongly expanding field of
355astroparticle physics.
356
357Assuming conservatively the performance of a single HEGRA-type
358telescope, long-term monitor\-ing of at least the following known
359blazars is possible: Mrk\,421, Mrk\,501, 1ES\,2344+514, 1ES\,1959+650,
360H\,1426+428, PKS\,2155-304. We emphasize, that DWARF will run as a
361facility dedicated to these targets only, providing a maximum
362observation time for the program. Utilizing recent developments, such
363as improvements of the light collection efficiency due to an improved
364mirror reflectivity and a better PM quantum efficiency, a 30\%
365improvement in sensitivity and a lower energy-threshold is reasonable.
366Current studies show that with a good timing resolution (2\,GHz) a
367further 40\% increase in sensitivity (compared to a 300\,MHz system) is
368feasible. Together with an extended mirror area and a large camera, a
369sensitivity improvement compared to a single HEGRA telescope of a
370factor of 2.5 and an energy threshold below 350\,GeV is possible.
371
372\subsection[2.2]{Preliminary work by proposers (Eigene Vorarbeiten)}
373
374From the experience with the construction, operation and data analysis
375of Amanda, IceCube, HEGRA and MAGIC the proposing groups contribute the
376necessary knowledge and experience to build and operate a small imaging
377air-Cherenkov telescope.
378
379\paragraph{Hardware}
380
381The Dortmund group is working on experimental and phenomenological
382astroparticle physics. In the past, the following hardware components
383were successfully developed: a Flash-ADC based DAQ (TWR, transient
384waveform recorder), currently in operation for data acquisition in the
385AMANDA subdetector within the IceCube telescope \citep{Wagner:PhD}, an
386online software Trigger for the TWR-DAQ system \citep{Messarius:PhD},
387online data compression mechanisms (TWR DAQ) \citep{Refflinghaus:Dipl},
388monitoring software for the TWR-DAQ-data \citep{Dreyer:Dipl} and
389in-ice-HV-power-supply for IceCube. This development was done with the
390companies CAEN, Pisa, Italy and Iseg, Rossendorf, Germany. The HV
391modules were long time tested under different temperature conditions
392connected to operating photomultipliers \citep{Bartelt:Dipl}. Prototypes
393for the scintillator counters of the planned Air Shower Array {\em
394SkyView} were developed and operated for two years \citep{Deeg:Dipl}.
395Members of the group (engineers) were involved in the fast trigger
396development for H1 and are involved in the FPGA-programming for the
397LHCb data read out. The group may further use the well equipped
398mechanical and electronic workshops in Dortmund and the electronic
399development departure of the faculty.
400
401The ultra fast drive system of the MAGIC telescopes, suitable for fast
402repositioning in case of Gamma-Ray Bursts, has been developed,
403commissioned and programmed by the W\"{u}rzburg group
404\citep{Bretz:2003drive,Bretz:2005drive}. To correct for axis
405misalignments and possible deformations of the structure (e.g.\ bending
406of camera holding masts), a pointing correction algorithm was developed
407\citep{Dorner:Diploma}. Its calibration is done by measurement of the
408reflection of bright guide stars on the camera surface and ensures a
409pointing accuracy well below the pixel diameter. Hardware and software
410(CCD readout, image processing and pointing correction algorithms) have
411also been developed and are in operation successfully since more than
412three years \citep{Riegel:2005icrc2}.
413
414Mirror structures made of plastic material have been developed as
415Winston cones for balloon flight experiments previously by the group of
416Wolfgang Dr\"{o}ge. W\"{u}rzburg has also participated in the development of
417a HPD test bench, which has been setup in Munich and W\"{u}rzburg. With
418this setup, HPDs for future improvement of the sensitivity of the MAGIC
419camera are investigated.
420
421\paragraph{Software}
422
423The W\"{u}rzburg group has developed a full MAGIC analysis package,
424flexible and modular enough to easily process DWARF data
425\citep{Bretz:2005paris,Riegel:2005icrc,Bretz:2005mars}. A method for
426absolute light calibration of the PMs based on Muon images, especially
427important for long-term monitoring, has been
428adapted and further improved for the MAGIC telescope
429\citep{Meyer:Diploma,Goebel:2005}. Both, data analysis and Monte Carlo
430production, have been fully automatized, such that both can run with
431sparse user interaction \citep{Dorner:2005icrc}. The analysis was
432developed to be powerful and as robust as possible to be best suited
433for automatic processing \citep{Dorner:2005paris}. Experience with
434large amount of data (up to 8\,TB/month) has been gained since 2004.
435The datacenter is equipped with a professional multi-stage
436(hierarchical) storage system. Two operators are paid by the physics
437faculty. Currently efforts in W\"{u}rzburg and Dortmund are ongoing to
438turn the old, inflexible Monte Carlo programs, used by the MAGIC
439collaboration, into modular packages allowing for easy simulation of
440other setups. Experience with Monte Carlo simulations, especially
441CORSIKA, is contributed by the Dortmund group, which has actively
442implemented changes into the CORSIKA program, such as an extension to
443large zenith angles, prompt meson production and a new atmospheric
444model \citep{Haffke:Dipl,Schroeder:PhD} for the local atmosphere of La
445Palma. Furthermore the group has developed high precision Monte Carlos
446for Lepton propagation in different media \citep{Chirkin:2004}.
447An energy unfolding method and program has been adapted for IceCube and
448MAGIC data analysis \citep{Curtef:CM,Muenich:ICRC}.
449
450\paragraph{Phenomenology}
451
452Both groups have experience with source models and theoretical
453computations of gamma-ray and neutrino spectra expected from blazars.
454The relation between the two messengers is a prime focus of interest.
455Experience with corresponding multi-messenger data analyses involving
456MAGIC and IceCube data is available in the Dortmund group. Research
457activities are also related with relativistic particle acceleration
458\citep{Meli} and gamma-ray attenuation \citep{Kneiske}. The W\"{u}rzburg
459group has organized and carried out multi-wavelength observations of
460bright blazars involving MAGIC, Suzaku, the IRAM telescopes and the
461KVA optical telescope \citep{Ruegamer}. Signatures of supermassive
462black hole binaries, which are most relevant also for gravitational
463wave detectors, are investigated jointly with the German LISA
464consortium (Burkart, Elbracht ongoing research, funded by DLR).
465\mbox{Secondary} gamma-rays due to dark matter annihilation events are
466investigated both from their particle physics and astrophysics aspects.
467Another main focus of research is on models of radiation and particle
468acceleration processes in blazar jets (hadronic and leptonic models),
469leading to predictions of correlated neutrino emission \citep{Rueger}.
470This includes simulations of particle acceleration due to the Weibel
471instability \citep{Burkart}. Much of this research at W\"{u}rzburg is
472carried out in the context of the research training school GRK\,1147
473{\em Theoretical Astrophysics and Particle Physics}.

475\section[3]{Goals and Work Schedule (Ziele und Arbeitsprogramm)}
476
477\subsection[3.1]{Goals (Ziele)}
478
479The aim of the project is to put the former CT3 of the HEGRA
480collaboration on the Roque de los Muchachos back into operation. It
481will be setup, under the name DWARF, with an enlarged mirror surface
482(fig.~\ref{DWARF}), a new camera with higher quantum efficiency and new
483fast data acquisition system. The energy threshold will be lowered, and
484the sensitivity of DWARF will be greatly improved compared to HEGRA CT3
485(see fig.~\ref{sensitivity}). Commissioning and the first year of data
486taking should be carried out within the three years of the requested
487funding period.

501The telescope will be operated robotically to reduce costs and man
502power demands. Furthermore, we seek to obtain know-how for the
503operation of future networks of robotic Cherenkov telescopes (e.g. a
504monitoring array around the globe or CTA) or telescopes at sited
505difficult to access. From the experience with the construction and
506operation of MAGIC or HEGRA, the proposing groups consider the planned
507focused approach (small number of experienced scientists) as optimal
508for achieving the project goals. The available automatic analysis
509package developed by the W\"{u}rzburg group for MAGIC is modular and
510flexible, and can thus be used with minor changes for the DWARF
511project.

521\end{center}
522\end{figure}
523
524The scientific focus of the project will be on the long-term monitoring
525of bright, nearby VHE emitting blazars. At least one of the proposed
526targets will be visible any time of the year (see
527fig.~\ref{visibility}). For calibration purposes, some time will be
528scheduled for observations of the Crab \mbox{Nebula}.\\
529
530The blazar observations will allow
531\begin{itemize}
532\item to determine the baseline emission, the duty cycle and the power
533spectrum of flux variations.
534\item to cooperate with the Whipple monitoring telescope for an
535extended time coverage.
536\item to prompt Target-of-Opportunity (ToO) observations with MAGIC in
537the case of flares increasing time resolution. Corresponding
538ToO proposals to H.E.S.S.\ and VERITAS are in preparation.
539\item to observe simultaneously with MAGIC which will provide an
540extended bandwidth from below 100\,GeV to multi-TeV energies.
541\item to obtain multi-frequency observations together with the
542Mets\"{a}hovi Radio Observatory and the optical telescopes of the
543Tuorla Observatory. The measurements will be correlated with INTEGRAL
544and GLAST results, when available. X-ray monitoring using the SWIFT and
545Suzaku facilities will be proposed.
546
547\end{itemize}
548
549Interpretation of the data will yield crucial information about
550\begin{itemize}
551\item the nature of the emission processes going on in relativistic
552jets. We plan to interpret the data with models currently developed in
553the context of the Research Training Group {\em Theoretical
554Astrophysics} in W\"{u}rzburg (Graduiertenkolleg, GK\,1147), including
555particle-in-cell and hybrid MHD models.
556\item the black hole mass and accretion rate fitting the data with
557emission models. Results will be compared with estimates of the black
558hole mass from the Magorrian relation.
559\item the flux of relativistic protons (ions) by correlating the rate
560of neutrinos detected with the neutrino telescope IceCube and the rate
561of gamma-ray photons detected with DWARF, and thus the rate of escaping
562cosmic rays.
563\item the orbital modulation owing to a supermassive binary black hole.
564Constraints on the binary system will allow to compute most accurate
565templates of gravitational waves, which is a connected project at
566W\"{u}rzburg in the German LISA consortium funded by DLR.
567\end{itemize}
568
569\subsection[3.2]{Work schedule (Arbeitsprogramm)}
570
571To complete the mount to a functional Cherenkov telescope within a
572period of one year, the following steps are necessary:
573
574The work schedule assumes, that the work will begin in January 2008,
575immediately after funding. Later funding would accordingly shift the
576schedule. Each year is divided into quarters (see fig.~\ref{schedule}).

585\end{center}
586\end{figure}
587
588\paragraph{Software}
589\begin{itemize}
590\item MC adaption (Do/W\"{u}): Due to the large similarities with the
591MAGIC telescope, within half a year new Monte Carlo code can be
592programmed using parts of the existing MAGIC Monte Carlo code. For
593tests and cross-checks another period of six months is necessary.
594\item Analysis adaption (W\"{u}): The modular concept of the Magic
595Analysis and Reconstruction Software (MARS) allows a very fast adaption
596of the telescope setup, camera and data acquisition properties within
597half a year.
598\item Adaption Drive software (W\"{u}): Since the new drive electronics
599will be based on the design of the MAGIC~II drive system the control
600software can be reused unchanged. The integration into the new slow
601control system will take about half a year. It has to be finished at
602the time of arrival of the drive system components in 2009/1.
603\item Slow control/DAQ (Do): A new data acquisition and slow control
604system for camera and auxiliary systems has to be developed. Based on
605experiences with the AMANDA DAQ, the Domino DAQ developed for MAGIC~II
606will be adapted and the slow control integrated within three quarters
607of a year. Commissioning will take place with the full system in
6082009/3.
609\end{itemize}
610
611\paragraph{Mirrors (W\"{u})} First prototypes for the mirrors are
612already available. After testing (six months), the production will
613start in summer 2008, and the shipment will be finished before the full
614system assembly 2009/2.
615\paragraph{Drive (W\"{u})} After a planning phase of half a year to
616simplify the MAGIC~II drive system for a smaller telescope (together
617with the delivering company), ordering, production and shipment should
618be finished in 2009/1. The MAGIC~I and~II drive systems have been
619planned and implemented successfully by the W\"{u}rzburg group.
620\paragraph{Auxiliary (W\"{u})} Before the final setup in 2009/1, all
621auxiliary systems (weather station, computers, etc.) will have been
622specified, ordered and shipped.
623\paragraph{Camera (Do)} The camera has to be ready six month after the
624shipment of the other mechanical parts of the telescope. For this
625purpose camera tests have to take place in 2009/2, which requires the
626assembly of the camera within six months before. By now, a PM test
627bench is set up in Dortmund, which allows to finish planning and
628ordering of parts of the camera, including the PMs, until summer 2008,
629before the construction begins.
630In addition to the manpower permanently provided by Dortmund
631for production and commissioning, two engineers will participate in the
632construction phase.
633\paragraph{Full System (Do/W\"{u})} The full system will be assembled
634after the delivery of all parts in the beginning of spring 2009. Start of
635the commissioning is planned four months later. First light is expected
636in autumn 2009. This would allow an immediate full system test with a
637well measured, strong and steady source (Crab Nebula). After the
638commissioning phase will have been finished in spring 2010, complete
639robotic operation will be provided.
640
641Based on the experience with setting up the MAGIC telescope we estimate
642this workschedule as conservative.

654
655Summarizing, the expenses for the telescope are dominated by the camera
656and data acquisition. We request funding for a total of three years.

660\subsection[4.1]{Required Staff (Personalkosten)}
661
662For this period, we request funding for two postdocs and two PhD
663students, one in Dortmund and one in W\"{u}rzburg each (3\,x\,TV-L13).The
664staff members shall fulfill the tasks given in the work schedule above.
666number of Diploma students will complete the working group.
667
668Suitable candidates interested in these positions are Dr.\ Thomas

673\subsection[4.2]{Scientific equipment (Wissenschaftliche Ger\"{a}te)}
674
675At the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (ORM), at the MAGIC site,
676the mount of the former HEGRA telescope CT3 now owned by the MAGIC
677collaboration is still serviceable. One hut for electronics close to
678the telescope is available. Additional space is available in the MAGIC
679counting house. The MAGIC Memorandum of Understanding allows for
680operating DWARF as an auxiliary instrument (see appendix). Also
681emergency support from the shift crew is guaranteed, although
682autonomous robotic operation is the primary goal.

711For long-term observations, the stability of the camera is a major
712criterion. To keep the systematic errors small, a good background
713estimation is mandatory. The only possibility for a synchronous
714determination of the background is the measurement from the night-sky
715observed in the same field-of-view with the same instrument. To achieve
716this, the observed position is moved out of the camera center which
717allows the estimation of the background from positions symmetric with
718respect to the camera center (so called Wobble mode). This observation
719mode increases the sensitivity by a factor of $\sqrt{2}$, because
720spending observation time for dedicated background observations becomes
721obsolete, i.e.\ observation time for the source is doubled. This
722ensures in addition a better time coverage of the observed sources.\\
723A further increase in sensitivity can be achieved by better background
724statistics from not only one but several independent positions for the
725background estimation in the camera \citep{Lessard:2001}. To allow for
726this the source position in Wobble mode should be shifted
727$0.6^\circ-0.7^\circ$ out of the camera center.
728
729A camera completely containing the shower images of events in the energy
730region of 1\,TeV-10\,TeV should have a diameter in the order of
7315$^\circ$. To decrease the dependence of the measurements on the camera
732geometry, a camera layout as symmetric as possible will be chosen.
733Consequently a camera allowing to fulfill these requirements should be
734round and have a diameter of $4.5^\circ-5.0^\circ$.
735\begin{figure}[th]

745
746Therefore a camera with 313 pixel camera (see fig.~\ref{camDWARF}) is
747chosen. The camera will be built based on the experience with HEGRA and
748MAGIC. 19\,mm diameter Photomultiplier Tubes (PM, EMI\,9083B/KFLA-UD)
749will be bought, similar to the HEGRA type (EMI\,9083\,KFLA). They have
750a quantum efficiency improved by 25\% (see fig.~\ref{qe}) and ensure a
751granularity which is enough to guarantee good results even below the
752energy threshold (flux peak energy). Each individual pixel has to be
753equipped with a preamplifier, an active high-voltage supply and
754control. The total expense for a single pixel will be in the order of
755650,-\,\euro.
756
757All possibilities of borrowing one of the old HEGRA cameras for a
758transition time have been probed and refused by the owners of the
759cameras.
760
761At ETH~Z\"{u}rich currently test measurements are ongoing to prove the
762ability, i.e.\ stability, aging, quantum efficiency, etc., of using
763Geiger-mode APDs (GAPD) as photon detectors in the camera of a
764Cherenkov telescope. The advantages are an extremely high quantum
765efficiency ($>$50\%), easier gain stabilization and simplified
766application compared to classical PMs. If these test measurements are
767successfully finished until 8/2008, we consider to use GAPDs in favor
768of classical PMs. The design of such a camera would take place at
769University Dortmund in close collaboration with the experts from ETH.
770The construction would also take place at the electronics workshop of
771Dortmund.

777For this setup the camera holding has to be redesigned. (1500,-\,\euro)
778The camera chassis must be water tight and will be equipped with an
779automatic lid, protecting the PMs at daytime. For further protection, a
780plexi-glass window will be installed in front of the camera. By coating
781this window with an anti-reflex layer of magnesium-fluoride, a gain in
782transmission of 5\% is expected. Each PM will be equipped with a
783light-guide (Winston cone) as developed by UC Davis and successfully in
784operation in the MAGIC camera. (3000,-\,\euro\ for all Winston cones). The
785current design will be improved by using a high reflectivity aluminized
786Mylar mirror-foil, coated with a dialectical layer ($Si\,O_2$
787alternated with Niobium Oxide), to reach a reflectivity in the order of
78898\%. An electric and optical shielding of the individual PMs is
789planned.

804For the data acquisition system a hardware readout based on an analog
805ring buffer (Domino\ II/IV), currently developed for the MAGIC~II

807the pulses with high frequencies and readout several channels with a
808single Flash-ADC resulting in low costs. The low power consumption will
809allow to include the digitization near the signal source making
810the transfer of the analog signal obsolete. This results in less

814short integration time allows for almost perfect suppression of noise
815due to night-sky background photons. The estimated trigger-, i.e.\
816readout-rate of the telescope is below 100\,Hz (HEGRA: $<$10\,Hz) which

839The existing mirrors will be replaced by new plastic mirrors currently
840developed by Wolfgang Dr\"{o}ge's group. The cheap and light-weight
841material has been formerly used for Winston cones in balloon
842experiments. The mirrors are copied from a master and coated with a
843reflecting and a protective material. Tests have given promising
844results. By a change of the mirror geometry, the mirror area can be
845increased from 8.5\,m$^2$ to 13\,m$^2$ (see picture~\ref{CT3} and
846montage~\ref{DWARF}). This includes an increase of $\sim$10$\%$ per
847mirror by using a hexagonal layout instead of a round one. A further
848increase of the mirror area would require a reconstruction of parts of
849the mount and will therefore be considered only in a later phase of the
850experiment.
851
852If the current development of the plastic mirrors cannot be finished in
853time, a re-machining of the old glass mirrors (8.5\,m$^2$) is possible
854with high purity aluminum and quartz coating.
855
856In both cases the mirrors can be coated with the same high reflectivity
857aluminized Mylar mirror-foil and a dialectical layer of $SiO_2$ as for
858the Winston cones. By this, a gain in reflectivity of $\sim10\%$ is
859achieved, see fig.~\ref{reflectivity} \citep{Fraunhofer}. Both

943Motors, shaft encoders and control electronics in the order of

945the experience from building the MAGIC drive systems. The DWARF drive
946system should allow for relatively fast repositioning for three

948observations. (ii)~Wobble mode observations will be done changing the
949Wobble-position continuously (each 20\,min) for symmetry reasons.
950(iii)~To ensure good time coverage of more than one source visible at

1137funded by the BMBF, Dortmund by means of appointment for the moment).
1138
1139W\"{u}rzburg is also in close scientific exchange with the group of
1140Prof.~Dr.~Victoria Fonseca, UCM Madrid and the University of Turku
1141(Finland) operating the KVA optical telescope at La Palma. Other
1142cooperations refer to the projects JEM-EUSO (science case), GRIPS
1143(simulation), LISA (astrophysical input for templates), STEREO (data
1144analysis), and SOLAR ORBITER (electron-proton telescope). A cooperation
1145with GLAST science team members (Dr.~Anita and Dr.~Olaf Reimer,
1146Stanford) is also relevant for the proposed project.
1147
1148The group in Dortmund is involved in the IceCube experiment (BMBF
1149funding) and maintains close contacts to the collaboration partners.
1150Moreover on the field of phenomenology good working contacts exist to
1151the groups of Prof.~Dr.~Reinhard Schlickeiser, Ruhr-Universit\"{a}t
1152Bochum and Prof.~Dr.~Peter Biermann, MPIfR Bonn. There are furthermore
1153intense contacts to Prof.~Dr.~Francis Halzen, Madison, Wisconsin.
1154
1155The telescope design will be worked out in close cooperation with the
1156group of Prof.~Dr.~Felicitas Pauss, Dr.~Adrian Biland and
1157Prof.~Dr.~Eckart Lorenz (ETH~Z\"{u}rich). They will provide help in design
1158studies, construction and software development. The DAQ design will be
1159contributed by the group of Prof.~Dr.~Riccardo Paoletti (Universit\`{a} di
1160Siena and INFN sez.\ di Pisa, Italy).
1161
1162The group of the newly appointed {\em Lehrstuhl f\"{u}r Physik und ihre
1163Didaktik} (Prof.~Dr.~Thomas Trefzger) has expressed their interest to

1286Teleskop, steht noch das ehemalige HEGRA-Teleskop (CT3) zur Verf"ugung.
1287Es ist noch immer nutzbar und geh"ort jetzt der MAGIC Kollaboration.
1288Au"serdem ist noch ein Container zur Unterbringung von Elektronik,
1289sowie weiterer Platz im MAGIC-eignenen Haus vorhanden. Der Memorandum
1290of Understanding der MAGIC-Kollaboration erlaubt uns den Betrieb des

1294Um die angestrebte Sensitivit"at und Energieschwelle (Abb.~\ref{sensitivity})
1295in m"oglichgst kurzer Zeit zu erreichen, wurden die folgenden
1296Komponenten ausgew"ahlt. Einzelheiten zu den Auswahlkriterien k"onnen

1309%For long-term observations, the stability of the camera is a major
1310%criterion. To keep the systematic errors small, a good background
1311%estimation is mandatory. The only possibility for a synchronous
1312%determination of the background is the measurement from the night-sky
1313%observed in the same field-of-view with the same instrument. To achieve
1314%this, the observed position is moved out of the camera center which
1315%allows the estimation of the background from positions symmetric with
1316%respect to the camera center (so called Wobble mode). This observation
1317%mode increases the sensitivity by a factor of $\sqrt{2}$, because
1318%spending observation time for dedicated background observations becomes
1319%obsolete, i.e.\ observation time for the source is doubled. This
1320%ensures in addition a better time coverage of the observed sources.\\
1321%A further increase in sensitivity can be achieved by better background
1322%statistics from not only one but several independent positions for the
1323%background estimation in the camera \citep{Lessard:2001}. To allow for
1324%this the source position in Wobble mode should be shifted
1325%$0.6^\circ-0.7^\circ$ out of the camera center.
1326%
1327%A camera completely containing the shower images of events in the energy
1328%region of 1\,TeV-10\,TeV should have a diameter in the order of
1329%5$^\circ$. To decrease the dependence of the measurements on the camera
1330%geometry, a camera layout as symmetric as possible will be chosen.
1331%Consequently a camera allowing to fulfill these requirements should be
1332%round and have a diameter of $4.5^\circ-5.0^\circ$.
1333%
1334%Therefore a camera with 313 pixel camera (see fig.~\ref{camDWARF}) is
1335%chosen. The camera will be built based on the experience with HEGRA and
1336%MAGIC. 19\,mm diameter Photomultiplier Tubes (PM, EMI\,9083B/KFLA-UD)

1350%ability, i.e.\ stability, aging, quantum efficiency, etc., of using
1351%Geiger-mode APDs (GAPD) as photon detectors in the camera of a
1352%Cherenkov telescope. The advantages are an extremely high quantum
1353%efficiency ($>$50\%), easier gain stabilization and simplified
1354%application compared to classical PMs. If these test measurements are
1355%successfully finished until 8/2008, we consider to use GAPDs in favor

1389%For the data acquisition system a hardware readout based on an analog

1423%The existing mirrors will be replaced by new plastic mirrors currently
