J/A+A/463/275   Chandra obs. of Serpens star-forming region    (Giardino+, 2007)

The onset of X-ray emission in young stellar objects. A Chandra observation of the Serpens star-forming region. Giardino G., Favata F., Micela G., Sciortino S., Winston E. <Astron. Astrophys., 463, 275-288 (2007)> =2007A&A...463..275G
ADC_Keywords: Associations, stellar ; YSOs ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; X-ray sources Keywords: ISM: clouds - ISM: individual objects: Serpens cloud - stars: pre-main sequence - X-rays: stars Abstract: To study the properties of X-ray emission from young stellar objects (YSOs) through their evolution from Class I to Class III and determine whether Class 0 protostars emit X-rays. A deep Chandra X-ray observation of the Serpens star-forming region was obtained. The Serpens Cloud Core is ideally suited for this type of investigation, being populated by a dense and extremely young cluster whose members are found in all evolutionary stages, including six well-studied Class 0 sources. Description: The core of the Serpens cloud was observed with Chandra starting at 21:43 UT on June 19, 2004. The observation lasted for 91.4ks (although the scheduled duration was 100ks).

Note (1): For the sources with a 2MASS counterpart (within a search radius of 3 arcsec) the values of their magnitude in the J, H and K bands are also given, together with the radial distance from this counterpart, the associations with Tycho 2 or USNOA-2.0 optical catalog sources and their optical magnitude. Note (2): The ISO field provides the source number and Class of the counterpart in the ISO catalogue by Kaas et al. (2004, Cat. J/A+A/421/623), also within a search radius of 3". Note (3): Source identification numbers and classification in the Spitzer data: the first id is the source IR id and the second one the YSO id number. Note (4): Classes of the Young Stellar Object as follows: I = Sources with a slope greater than 0 I/II = Flat Spectrum object (slope between 0.0 and -0.5) II = Sources that show excess emission from a circumstellar disk, with a slope between -0.5 and ~-3.5 II/III = Transition Disk object III = source exhibits photospheric emission, with slopes of ~-3.5 Note (5): All the counterparts are within 1" from the X-ray sources, unless their IR id is accompanied by + or is in between brackets. + = Although the matching distance is greater than 1", we are confident in the cross-identification reliability ) = some doubts remains (these are usually faint IR sources).
