Abstract

We present here the results from observations of pulsed gamma ray emission from the Crab and Vela pulsars for energies above 100 GeV using the atmospheric Cerenkov technique. The results suggest a very steep energy spectrum for gamma rays emitted from pulsars at high energies. Our observations over the last 4 years suggest also that the flux is highly variable with time.
