INTEGRAL/IBIS deep extragalactic survey: M81, LMC and 3C 273/Coma fields. Mereminskiy I.A., Krivonos R.A., Lutovinov A.A., Sazonov S.Y., Revnivtsev M.G., Sunyaev R.A. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 459, 140-150 (2016)> =2016MNRAS.459..140M (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

The combined survey reaches a 4σ peak sensitivity of 0.18mCrab (2.6x10-12erg/s/cm2) and sensitivity better than 0.25 and 0.87mCrab over 10 per cent and 90 per cent of its full area of 4900 deg2, respectively. We have detected in total 147 sources at S/N>4σ, including 37 sources observed in hard X-rays for the first time. The survey is dominated by extragalactic sources, mostly active galactic nuclei (AGN). The sample of identified sources contains 98 AGN (including 64 Seyfert galaxies, seven low-ionization nuclear emission-line region galaxies, three X-ray bright optically normal galaxies, 16 blazars and eight AGN of unclear optical class), two galaxy clusters (Coma and Abell 3266), 17 objects located in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (13 high- and two low-mass X-ray binaries and two X-ray pulsars), three Galactic cataclysmic variables, one ultraluminous X-ray source (M82 X-1) and one blended source (SWIFT J1105.7+5854). The nature of 25 sources remains unknown, so that the survey's identification is currently complete at 83 per cent. We have constructed AGN number-flux relations (log N-log S) and calculated AGN number densities in the local Universe for the entire survey and for each of the three extragalactic fields. Description: For the current survey we used all publicly available data acquired with INTEGRAL before 2015 June (spacecraft revolution 1553). The data from ISGRI, the first detector layer of the IBIS telescope, were utilized, as having the highest sensitivity at hard X-rays. We selected 17-60keV as our working energy band where ISGRI has the highest effective area. We analysed the mosaic maps for positive excesses with S/N>4σ and found 147 source candidates.

Note (1): * for sources in spatial confusion. The measured flux of these sources should be taken with the caution Note (2): For sources previously detected in hard X-rays, we use their catalogue or common name. We assign an "IGR" name for sources detected for the first time. Note (3): * for sources previously unknown in hard X-ray band (17-60keV). Note (4): For the calculation of luminosities, we used the metric distance for nearby sources (z≤0.01) and the luminosity distance estimated from the redshift for the more distant sources. Distances and redshifts were obtained from the SIMBAD and NED data bases. We only calculated luminosities for sources classified as AGN; a standard {LAMBDA}CDM cosmology with H0=67.8km/s/Mpc, {OMEGA}m=0.308 was used. Note (5): Types as follows: HMXB = high-mass X-ray binary LMXB = low-mass X-ray binary CV = cataclysmic variable pulsar = rotation powered X-ray pulsar cluster = cluster of galaxies Sy1 = Seyfert galaxy of type 1 Sy2 = Seyfert galaxy of type 2 Sy1.2 = Seyfert galaxy of type 1.2 Sy1.5 = Seyfert galaxy of type 1.5 Sy1.8 = Seyfert galaxy of type 1.8 Sy1.9 = Seyfert galaxy of type 1.9 NLS1 = narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies LINER = low-ionization nuclear emission-line region galaxy LINER? = source classified as LINER based on optical observations but show unusually high hard X-ray luminosities - more than 1043erg/s XBONG = X-ray bright optically normal galaxy blazar = BL Lac object or flat-spectrum radio quasar NLRG = narrow emission-line radio-galaxy. AGN = for all sources associated with galaxies but without known activity type Note (6): For known sources, we present an optical or IR counterpart name. For sources detected for the first time, we specify the soft X-ray counterpart and associated optical association. Some additional remarks are also provided.
