Abstract / Description:Microquasars are potential candidates to produce a non-negligible fraction of the observed galactic cosmic rays. The protons accelerated at the jet termination shock interact with the interstellar medium and may produce detectable fluxes of extended emission at different energy bands: high-energy and very high-energy gamma-rays produced by neutral pion-decay, synchrotron and bremsstrahlung emission in a wide energy range generated by the secondary electrons produced by charged pion-decay. We discuss the association between this scenario and some of the unidentified EGRET sources in the galactic plane.
