J/ApJ/807/129      X-ray to MIR luminosities relation of AGNs      (Stern, 2015)

The X-ray to mid-infrared relation of AGNs at high luminosity. Stern D. <Astrophys. J., 807, 129 (2015)> =2015ApJ...807..129S (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Infrared sources ; Redshifts ; X-ray sources Keywords: galaxies: active Abstract: The X-ray and mid-IR emission from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are strongly correlated. However, while various published parameterizations of this correlation are consistent with the low-redshift, local Seyfert galaxy population, extrapolations of these relations to high luminosity differ by an order of magnitude at νLν(6µm)∼1047erg/s. Using data from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, we determine the mid-IR luminosities of the most luminous quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and present a revised formulation of the X-ray to mid-IR relation of AGNs which is appropriate from the Seyfert regime to the powerful quasar regime.
