Abstract / Description:The poor angular resolution of imaging gamma-ray telescopes is offset by the large collection area of the next generation telescopes such as MAGIC (17 m diameter) which makes the study of optical emission associated with some gamma ray sources feasible. In particular the optical photon flux causes an increase in the photomultiplier DC currents. Furthermore, the extremely fast response of PMs make them ideal detectors for fast (subsecond) optical transients and periodic sources like pulsars. The HEGRA CT1 telescope (1.8m radius) is the smallest Cherenkov telescope which has seen the Crab optical pulsations.
