Abstract

Utilising the unprecedented TeV sky coverage of the H.E.S.S. galactic plane scan, we present the results of a search for Very High Energy gamma;-ray sources coincident with the positions of known X-ray binaries. Although no significant detections were obtained, upper limits to the TeV flux from 18 X-ray binaries were derived.
