    X-ray astronomy is a physical subfield of radiation astronomy, that uses a variety of X-ray detectors fashioned into X-ray telescopes to observe natural sources that emit, reflect, transmit, or fluoresce X-rays. X-rays can only penetrate so far into a planetary atmosphere such as that surrounding the crustal and oceanic surface of the limitation requires that these detectors and.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Analysis results from ASCA and ROSAT observations of the narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk are reported. In the ASCA observation, we observed rapid variability with a doubling timescale of s. Fiore F., Massaro E. () Time Variability of the X-Ray Emission from Seyfert Galaxies. In: Belvedere G.

Massaro. The ultrasoft soft X-ray component in the Seyfert 1 galaxy RE J is very strong and highly variable.

A variable ultrasoft X-ray spectrum is a rare property among broad-line AGN, more. We study Suzaku observations of Narrow Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies (NLS1s).

Among the various X-ray spectral components in radio quiet Active Galactic Nucleis (AGNs), our main interest is its primary emission, i.e., power-lawAuthor: Hiroaki Takahashi. Abstract: Using the 3XMM catalogue of serendipitous X-ray sources, and the SDSS-DR9 spectroscopic catalogue, we have obtained a new sample of X-ray selected narrow emission line galaxies.

The standard optical diagnostic diagram and selection by hard X-ray luminosity expose a mismatch between the optically-based and X-ray-based by: emitting narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies. The RMS variability spectrum decreases with energy up to The X-ray spectrum is composed by a steep spectrum (corona), a reflection component, and a hard power-law associated with the jet.

We detect a weak unidentified emission line at E=()+/ keV in a stacked XMM spectrum of 73 galaxy clusters spanning a redshift range MOS and PN observations independently show the presence of the line at consistent energies. When the full sample is divided into three subsamples (Perseus, Centaurus+Ophiuchus+Coma, and all others), the line is significantly.

The origin of the observed time lags, in nearby active galactic nuclei (AGNs), between hard and soft X-ray photons is investigated using new XMM-Newton data for the narrow-line Seyfert I galaxy Ark and existing data for 1H and NGC These AGNs have highly variable X-ray light curves that contain frequent, high peaks of emission.

GALAXIES, X-RAY EMISSION. Giuseppina Fabbiano. The study of the x-ray emission of normal galaxies is a very recent part of astronomy. This work has been made possible by the sensitive x-ray imaging observations of the Einstein (HEAO 2) satellite, launched by NASA in November Before then, with the exclusion of the bright x-ray sources associated with Seyfert nuclei, only four galaxies.

NLSy1 represent a rare type of Seyfert galaxies identified by [] and characterized by their optical properties: narrow permitted emission lines (full width at half maximum, FWHM (H β) Cited by: 1.

An active galactic nucleus (AGN) is a compact region at the center of a galaxy that has a much higher than normal luminosity over at least some portion of the electromagnetic spectrum with characteristics indicating that the luminosity is not produced by excess non-stellar emission has been observed in the radio, microwave, infrared, optical, ultra-violet, X-ray and gamma ray wavebands.

Using the highest sensitivity of ASCA in the keV band, we can measure the hard component for normal spiral galaxies. In addition, although normal spiral galaxies sometimes have soft X-ray emission as well as the hard X-ray emission (Okada ), we can separate the hard component from a soft component with the ASCA wide band by: 4.

Abstract. Seyfert and narrow emission line galaxies have been known for several years to be sources of X-ray emission. Although some of these galaxies have now been identified (1,2,3), spectral observations are available for only a fraction of this by: 6.

In all galaxies near enough to be studied in detail with Chandra (and this includes galaxies as far as at least 20Mpc), we observe populations of X-ray sources, with characteristics (time variability and spectra/X-ray colors) consistent with those of the X-ray binary stars found in the Milky Way: these sources are powered by the outer layers of a normal star falling into a neutron star or a.

The examples shown in Fig. 2, Fig. 3 are for a HIG illuminated by a Γ= X-ray continuum with U(oxygen)= U(hydrogen)= and U X = Fig. 2 is a pure absorption case, i.e. the 4π covering factor is very small but the line-of-sight covering factor is The softer part of the continuum, and the other model parameters, are identical to the ones used for the previous by: 2.

X-ray variability is of great importance among AGN variability studies. In AGN spectral energy distributions (SEDs), luminous X-ray emission is almost universal and often a significant contributor to the total source power (e.g., Gibson et al.

X-ray variability is generally of larger amplitude and more rapid compared to that at longerCited by:. First published inthis book is a comprehensive survey of the astrophysical characteristics of the hot gas which pervades clusters of galaxies.

In our universe, clusters of galaxies are the largest organised structures. Typically they comprise hundreds of galaxies moving through a region of space ten million light years in by: A spectral line is a dark or bright line in an otherwise uniform and continuous spectrum, resulting from emission or absorption of light in a narrow frequency range, compared with the nearby frequencies.

Spectral lines are often used to identify atoms and "fingerprints" can be compared to the previously collected "fingerprints" of atoms and molecules, and are thus used to.The population of blazars consists of flat-spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs) and BL Lac objects, the latter distinguishing themselves by (nearly) featureless optical spectra with emission-line equivalent widths E W Cited by:
