Abstract / Description:Microquasars (MQs) are galactic objects with relativistic jets that constitute a source population which can be responsible for production of a non-negligible fraction of the observed galactic cosmic rays. These relativistic protons, associated with the termination of the jet, interact with the interstellar medium and, at certain surrounding conditions, may lead to production of detectable fluxes of high-energy and very high-energy gamma-rays. This radiation is accompanied by the broad-band emission of secondary electrons from decays of π ±-mesons produced through synchrotron, bremstrahlung and inverse Compton process. The features of broad-band emission initiated by proton-proton (pp) interactions in such a scenario is discussed in the context of the strategy of search for counterparts of high-energy and very high-energy gamma-ray sources in the galactic plane.
