J/AJ/124/3465       AGN in the KISS-RASS sample              (Stevenson+, 2002)

KISS active galactic nuclei in the soft X-ray band: correlation with the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. Stevenson S.L., Salzer J.J., Sarajedini V.L., Moran E.C. <Astron. J. 124, 3465 (2002)> =2002AJ....124.3465S

The sample is derived from a correlation between the KPNO International Spectroscopic Survey (KISS), an Hα-elected objective-prism survey of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) and starbursting galaxies, and the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS). After elimination of all spurious matches, we identify 18 ROSAT-detected X-ray sources within the KISS sample in the 0.1-2.4keV band. File Summary:
