Abstract

Very High Energy (TeV) photons can evade absorption by conversion into axion-like (ALPs) particles in the extragalactic magnetic field (EMF). We show that using realistic simula- tions of the EMF we obtain an even stronger conversion than those obtained with the simplified cell model. This effect would be probed with the upcoming Cherenkov Tele- scope Array detector.
