TeV blazars as seen by the CAT telescope


To date, only two extragalactic objects have been firmly established as very high-energy gamma-ray sources in the Northern sky: these are the two blazars Markarian 501 and Markarian 421. This paper reviews the most striking results obtained from these sources by the CAT atmospheric Cherenkov imaging telescope, with a particular emphasis on the 1999-2000 and 2000-2001 observation campaigns of Markarian 421.
