J/ApJ/648/111       Chandra sources near AGNs                  (Levenson+, 2006)

Penetrating the deep cover of Compton-thick active galactic nuclei. Levenson N.A., Heckman T.M., Krolik J.H., Weaver K.A., Zycki P.T. <Astrophys. J., 648, 111-127 (2006)> =2006ApJ...648..111L
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; X-ray sources Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: Seyfert - X-rays: galaxies Abstract: We analyze observations obtained with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory of bright Compton-thick active galactic nuclei (AGNs), those with column densities in excess of 1.5x1024cm-2 along the lines of sight. We therefore view the powerful central engines only indirectly, even at X-ray energies. Using high spatial resolution and considering only galaxies that do not contain circumnuclear starbursts, we reveal the variety of emission AGNs alone may produce. Description: We observed the galaxies using the Chandra Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) back-illuminated S3 detector. We reprocessed all data from original Level 1 event files using Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) software, version 3.2. (See the Chandra Science Center for details about Chandra data and standard processing procedures.) File Summary:
