Gamma-ray emission from supermassive black hole binary OJ 287

OJ 287 is one of the most studied BL Lacs with very long optical measurements which spectrum has been well measured through radio to X-rays. OJ 287 is supposed to be a binary black hole system. Its secondary black hole passes the accretion disk of the primary black hole and produces two impact flashes per 12-year period. Observations of OJ 287 in the GeV – TeV energy range reveal the variable γ-ray flux connected with the flare activity of this object. The spectral energy distributions of BL Lac objects consist of two broad peaks. The Inverse Compton emission of the relativistic electrons in the jet or combined with an external Compton mechanism are considered in the leptonic scenario of second, higher frequency spectrum part generation. The last one supposes the existence of the external to jet photon cloud. Also, the second spectrum part is supposed to be generated due to the acceleration of the cosmic ray hadrons in expanding shock produced by outflow, which then collides with the wind of the primary black hole. The detection of GeV – TeV energy fluxes can help find the configuration parameters of the two-black hole system.
