Galactic survey of 44Ti sources with the IBIS telescope onboard INTEGRAL. Tsygankov S.S., Krivonos R.A., Lutovinov A.A., Revnivtsev M.G., Churazov E.M., Sunyaev R.A., Grebenev S.A. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 458, 3411-3419 (2016)> =2016MNRAS.458.3411T (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

The peak sensitivity of our survey reached an unprecedented level of 4.8x10-6ph/cm2/s (3σ) that improves the sensitivity of the survey done by Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory/COMPTEL by a factor of ∼5. As a result, constraining upper limits for all sources from the catalogue of Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs; Green, 2014, Cat. VII/272) are derived. These upper limits can be used to estimate the exposure needed to detect 44Ti emission from any known SNR using existing and prospective X- and gamma-ray telescopes. Among the youngest Galactic SNRs, only Cas A shows significant 44Ti emission flux in good agreement with the NuSTAR measurements. We did not detect any other sources of titanium emission in the Galactic plane at significance level higher than 5σ confirming previous claims of the rarity of such 44Ti-producing SNRs. Description: The INTEGRAL observatory (Winkler et al., 2003A&A...411L...1W) has demonstrated a great success in surveying the sky in hard X-rays at energies above 20keV. For the current analysis, we utilized all the publicly available data taken until 2014 October (or spacecraft revolution 1469). File Summary:

Note (1): Catalogue is sorted by source name, which is in turn, based on Galactic coordinates. Note (2): If significance of the detection of such source is above 3 sigma level, an upper limit (3 sigma) in the 78.4keV line is shown assuming a simple power-law continuum model. Note (3): The spatial confusion with a known hard X-ray source (shown in parenthesis) is indicated. SNRs dominated by the continuum flux are marked as well.
