Abstract

Since the discovery of TeV emission from the LS 5039/RX J1826.2-1450 binary system, microquasars are an established class of Very High Energy gamma;-ray sources. Nonetheless, the current catalogue of gamma;-ray binaries remains somewhat limited, with only four examples known. We present the results of a systematic search for TeV emission from known X-ray binaries with similar properties to LS 5039/RX J1826.2-1450 using the H.E.S.S. atmospheric Cherenkov telescope array.
