Abstract (from CDS):

We report the observation of a very high energy γ-ray source whose position is coincident with HESS J1841-055. This source has been observed for 4.5 years by the ARGO-YBJ experiment from 2007 November to 2012 July. Its emission is detected with a statistical significance of 5.3 standard deviations. Parameterizing the source shape with a two-dimensional Gaussian function, we estimate an extension σ = (0.40–0.22+0.32)°, which is consistent with the HESS measurement. The observed energy spectrum is dN/dE = (9.0±1.6)x10–13(E/5 TeV)–2.32±0.23 photons/cm2/s/TeV, in the energy range 0.9-50 TeV. The integral γ-ray flux above 1 TeV is 1.3±0.4 Crab, which is 3.2 ± 1.0 times the flux derived by HESS. The differences in the flux determination between HESS and ARGO-YBJ and possible counterparts at other wavelengths are discussed.
