ADC_Keywords: X-ray sources Keywords: cosmology: observations - diffuse radiation - galaxies: active - surveys - X-rays: galaxies - X-rays: general Abstract: A deep X-ray survey of the Hubble Deep Field-North (HDF-N) and its environs is performed using data collected by the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) on board the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. Currently a 221.9ks exposure is available, the deepest ever presented, and here we give results on X-ray sources located in the 8.6'x8.7' area covered by the Caltech Faint Field Galaxy Redshift Survey (the "Caltech area"). This area has (1) deep photometric coverage in several optical and near-infrared bands; (2) extensive coverage at radio, submillimeter, and mid-infrared wavelengths; and (3) some of the deepest and most complete spectroscopic coverage ever obtained. It is also where the X-ray data have the greatest sensitivity; the minimum detectable fluxes in the 0.5-2keV (soft) and 2-8keV (hard) bands are ∼1.3x10-16 and ∼6.5x10-16ergs/cm2/s, respectively.

Note (1): The J2000 position given in the CXOHDFN name. Note (2): Individual notes: e = Both CXOHDFN J123615.9+621515 and CXOHDFN J123621.0+621411 have >1.0'' positional offsets between the full-band and soft-band detections. These are not considered to be independent detections due to decreased positional certainty for the combination of low numbers of counts (< 10) and large off-axis angles (> 5'). For the first, the source is very hard even if the soft match is incorrect. For the second, Gamma = 1.4 is assumed regardless of the soft match due to the low number of counts. Both sources have faint (R > 24.5) optical counterparts and no measured redshifts, so none of the conclusions about their identities is compromised by a false cross-band match. CXOHDFN J123702.8+621601 has a >1.0'' offset between full-band and hard-band detections, but the hard-band source has only 6 counts and the source spectrum is soft regardless of the hard-band match. This source has a very faint optical counterpart (R ∼ 25.4) and no redshift, so its identity would not be compromised by a false cross-band match. f = WAVDETECT photometry failed, this value is from our manual photometry (see section 3.3). According to WAVDETECT, the numbers of ``detected'' counts for CXOHDFN J123640.2+621655, CXOHDFN J123657.4+621026, CXOHDFN J123703.5+621447 were 3.6, 1.9 and 3.5, respectively. For CXOHDFN J123704.8+621601, WAVDETECT photometry gave 27.8 counts, but our manual photometry found 61.4 counts. g = Source located on or near a gap between the CCDs for at least one observation. h = Source located at the edge of the ACIS field during observation 957 (see Table 1). Note (3): Source exposure times are effective exposure times taken from the appropriate location in the full-band exposure map (see section 3.2 for discussion). Note (4): Defined as the ratio of counts between the hard and soft bands. These band ratios have been corrected for the differential vignetting in the hard and soft bands. Note (5): Calculated following the "numerical method" described in section 1.7.3 of Lyons (1991, Data Analysis for Physical Science Students (Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press)). Note (6): Entries with values of 1.40 are assumed, since there are too few counts to determine the band ratio and then to estimate Gamma. Note (7): A kT=0.5keV thermal bremsstrahlung X-ray spectral model was assumed.

Note (1): The J2000 position given in the CXOHDFN name. Note (2): Individual notes: e = Luminosity is for the rest frame of the source. f = For these objects, there was an optical counterpart lying within the aperture close to the edge. We have measured the magnitudes with the aperture centered on the position of this optical source (see section 4.2 and Figure 6). CXOHDFN J123641.8+621132 is 1.4" from the galaxy center but is consistent with an apparent off-center ultraviolet bright spot (see Hornschemeier et al., 2000ApJ...541...49H). It is possible that this spot may be a background AGN. CXOHDFN J123648.0+620941 has two optical counterparts of comparable brightness within the 3.0" aperture (see Figure 6). We have measured the magnitudes of these two sources manually. See section A.2 for more discussion of this source. g = See Figure 9 for this object's spectrum. h = High-redshift objects: For soft-band fluxes, the 0.5-2keV rest frame has been redshifted out of our observed bandpass, so these luminosities are extrapolations of the power law calculated from higher energy data. For hard-band fluxes (2 cases), this object was not detected in the observed 2-8keV band but since the observed 0.5-2keV band overlaps well with the rest-frame 2-8keV band, we use the 0.5-2keV count rate to calculate the hard luminosity for this source. Note (3): Measured or calculated as described in section 4.2. Note (4): CXOHDFN J123651.7+621221 lacks an optical counterpart in our deep I-band imaging, but it does have a faint V=26.7 counterpart in the HDF-N (see Hornschemeier et al., 2000ApJ...541...49H).
