Abstract

We search for continuous gamma-ray emission from the Crab Nebula above 100 TeV, using the data collected from March 2008 to July 2009 by the Tibet air shower array and the 100 m2 muon detector. We find that our MC simulation is in good agreement with the experimental data. No significant excess is found. An upper limit, comparable to the world's best limit until now, is obtained above 140 TeV.
