摘要

Context. Very high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray measurements of distant TeV blazars can be nicely explained by TeV spectra induced by ultra high-energy cosmic rays. Aims. We develop a model for a plausible origin of hard spectra in distant TeV blazars. 

Methods. In the model, the TeV emission in distant TeV blazars is dominated by two mixed components. The first is the internal component with the photon energy around 1 TeV produced by inverse Compton scattering of the relativistic electrons on the synchrotron photons (SSC) with a correction for extragalactic background light absorbtion and the other is the external component with the photon energy more than 1 TeV produced by the cascade emission from high-energy protons propagating through intergalactic space. 

Results. Assuming suitable model parameters, we apply the model to observed spectra of distant TeV blazars of 1ES 0229+ 200. Our results show that 1) the observed spectrum properties of 1ES 0229+ 200, especially the TeV gamma-ray tail of the observed spectra, could be reproduced in our model and 2) an expected TeV gamma-ray spectrum with photon energy > 1 TeV of 1ES 0229+ 200 should be comparable with the 50-h sensitivity goal of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and the differential sensitivity curve for the one-year observation with the Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO). 

Conclusions. We argue that strong evidence for the Bethe-Heitler cascades along the line of sight as a plausible origin of hard spectra in distant TeV blazars could be obtained from VHE observations with CTA, LHAASO, HAWC, and HiSCORE.
