J/A+A/417/651       NEXXUS ROSAT survey of coronal X-ray     (Schmitt+, 2004)

NEXXUS: A comprehensive ROSAT survey of coronal X-ray emission among nearby solar-like stars. Schmitt J.H.M.M., Liefke C. <Astron. Astrophys., 417, 651-665 (2004)> =2004A&A...417..651S
ADC_Keywords: X-ray sources ; Stars, late-type ; Stars, nearby Keywords: stars: activity - stars: coronae - stars: late-type - X-rays: stars Description: We present a final summary of all ROSAT X-ray observations of nearby stars. All available ROSAT observations with the ROSAT PSPC, HRI and WFC have been matched with the CNS4 catalog of nearby stars and the results gathered in the NEarby X-ray and XUV-emitting Stars (NEXXUS) data base. New volume-limited samples of F/G-stars (table 1), K-stars (table 2), and M-stars (table 3) are constructed within which detection rates of more than 90% are obtained. File Summary:

Note (1): ROSAT Observation mode: S = ROSAT All-Sky Survey, Cat. IX/10 P = pointed observation with the PSPC, Cat. IX/30 F = pointed observation with the PSPC with boron filter, Cat. IX/30 H = pointed observation with the HRI, Cat. IX/28 Note (2): For the ROSAT All-Sky Survey and the pointed observations with the PSPC the source likelihood is given, for HRI observations the signal- to-noise ratio. For count rate upper limits always the likelihood is given independently from the observing mode.
