Template light curves for known gamma-ray binaries. Two orbits are shown except for PSR B1259-63 where the plot focusses on periastron passage. The various measurements are shown in grey, with error bars omitted for clarity. Arrows indicate measurement upper limits. Left: photon flux integrated above 1 GeV in units of 10-9 ph cm-2 s-1 based on Fermi-LAT measurements. Right: photon flux integrated above 1 TeV in units of 10-12 ph cm-2 s-1 based on IACT measurements. The GeV and TeV data are taken from Abdo et al. (2009) and Aharonian et al. (2006) for LS 5039, where ΓGeV = 2.54; Hadasch et al. (2012) and Acciari et al. (2011) for LS I +61°303, where ΓGeV = 2.42 and ΓTeV = 2.6; Bordas et al. (2016) for PSR B1259-63, where ΓGeV = ΓTeV = 2.7; Ackermann et al. (2012) and Abramowski et al. (2015) for 1FGL J1018.6-5856, where ΓGeV = 3.1 and ΓTeV = 2.7. The GeV data for LMC P3 are from Corbet et al. (2016), where ΓGeV = 2.8. The TeV data for HESS J0632+057 are from Aliu et al. (2014).
