Abstract

Pulsars are known to be efficient accelerators that produce copious amounts of relativistic particles and inject them into the Galactic medium. The radiation emitted by such a pulsar wind can be seen from radio through γ-rays as a pulsar-wind nebula (PWN). Here we overview and summarize recent progress in X-ray and TeV observations of PWNe.
