      Weak, broad emission lines due to low-ionization stages of iron, and other spectral features, have recently been observed in the X-ray spectra of Active Galactic Nuclei and in some Galactic X-ray binaries. These features are due to X-ray irradiation of relatively cold, dense gas very close to the central compact by: Soft X-ray Emission Lines in Active Galactic Nuclei Mat Page • Thermal plasma + low energy cosmic rays more likely. – M81* 10, times more powerful than Sgr A*.

The observed X-ray background is thought to result from, at the "soft" end (below keV), galactic X-ray emission, the "galactic" X-ray background, and, at the "hard" end (above keV), from a combination of many unresolved X-ray sources outside of the Milky Way, the "cosmic" X-ray background (CXB).

The galactic X-ray background is produced largely by emission from. X-ray emission from active galactic nuclei and the cosmic X-ray background.

Proceedings., by Brinkmann, W.; Trümper, J. Max-Planck-Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik, Garching (Germany), Marp., ISSN During the last few years significant progress has been made in measuring the X-ray spectra and time variability of active galactic nuclei.

The ROSAT All Sky Survey yielded an enormous number of previously unknown X-ray AGN. At the same time the limits of deep surveys could be pushed by almost one order of magnitude compared with previous surveys and for the first time, the.

non-X-ray events. – At low X-ray energies, solar electrons can be especially problematic, introducing a time-dependent background which is not easily predictable. – At hard X-ray and soft gamma-ray energies, cosmic ray activation of the spacecraft and.

Active Galactic Nuclei and the Cosmic X-Ray Background Eduardo Ibar Supervisors: Dr. Rob Ivison & Dr. Philip Best Ma 1 Active Galactic Nuclei Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) are the most lumi-nous objects in the Universe (besides Gamma-Ray Bursts). Typical spatial scales for these objects are estimated from time variability, giving.

This book presents a review of the current observational knowledge and understanding of the cosmic X- ray background, discovered 30 years ago.

The most relevant observational features of the cosmic X-ray background, its spectrum, high galactic latitude isotropy on all angular scales and its source content, are reviewed in detail.

We present the results from broadband X-ray spectral analysis of 3C and PKS –35 with Suzaku and Swift/BAT, two of the most luminous unobscured and. Astrophysical X-ray sources are astronomical objects with physical properties which result in the emission of X-rays.

There are a number of types of astrophysical objects which emit X-rays, from galaxy clusters, through black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) to galactic objects such as supernova remnants, stars, and binary stars containing a white dwarf (cataclysmic variable.

Cosmic X-ray background, X-ray radiation pervading the the first X-ray detectors were flown above Earth’s X-ray-absorbing atmosphere in a sounding addition to discovering the first cosmic X-ray source, Scorpius X-1, astronomers were also puzzled by a uniform glow of X-rays with energies greater than keV (1 keV = 1, electron volts).

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.

The Harder X-ray Emission From the Active Nucleus of M87 is Seen as a Hard Tail in the Spectrum. The GINGA LAC is a non-imaging Instrument with a 1×2 degrees (FWHM) field of view.

Abstract. As the sky in the microwave band is dominated by a cosmic background, so too is the X-ray sky.

In this presentation the observational situation regarding the extragalactic X-ray background is reviewed, emphasizing data obtained from Cited by: The increasing sensitivity of X-ray observations enables us to study growing samples of active galactic nuclei (AGN) and test for ex-treme regions of the parameter space.

A signi cant number of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are observed to be hidden behind dust and gas. The distribution of material around AGNs plays an important role in modeling the cosmic X-ray background (CXB), especially the fraction of Type-2 AGNs (f 2).

One of the possible explanations for the obscuration in Seyfert galaxies at.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: Chapter Active Galactic Nuclei Figure Color-color plots of known quasars from SDSS (colored dots) and stars (black dots) in the LSST photometric system.

The quasars are color coded by redshift according to the color key, and for clarity, the dot size is inversely proportional to the expected surface density as a function of redshift.
