  • GRS 1739-278 OBSERVED AT VERY LOW LUMINOSITY WITH $\small \textit{XMM-NEWTON}$ AND $\small \textit{NuSTAR}$ 

    Furst, F; Tomsick, JA; Yamaoka, K; Dauser, T; Miller, JM; Clavel, M; Corbel, S et al. (IOP Publishing, 2016-12-01)
    We present a detailed spectral analysis of $\small \textit{XMM-Newton}$ and $\small \textit{NuSTAR}$ observations of the accreting transient black hole GRS 1739−278 during a very faint low hard state at ~0.02% of the ...
  • The mass distribution of the unusual merging cluster Abell 2146 from strong lensing 

    Coleman, JE; King, LJ; Oguri, M; Russell, HR; Canning, REA; Leonard, A; Santana, R et al. (Oxford University Press, 2017-01-11)
    Abell 2146 consists of two galaxy clusters that have recently collided close to the plane of the sky, and it is unique in showing two large shocks on $\textit{Chandra X-ray Observatory}$ images. With an early stage merger, ...
  • Do sound waves transport the AGN energy in the Perseus cluster? 

    Fabian, AC; Walker, SA; Russell, HR; Pinto, C; Sanders, JS; Reynolds, CS (Oxford University Press, 2017-01-01)
    The level of random motions in the intracluster gas lying between 20 and 60 kpc radius in the core of the Perseus cluster has been measured by the Hitomi Soft X-ray Spectrometer (SXS) at 164 ± 10 km s$^{−1}$ . The maximum ...
  • A 78 Day X-Ray Period Detected from NGC 5907 ULX1 by $\textit{Swift}$ 

    Walton, DJ; Fürst, F; Bachetti, M; Barret, D; Brightman, M; Fabian, AC; Gehrels, N et al. (IOP Publishing, 2016-08-10)
    We report the detection of a 78.1 ± 0.5 day period in the X-ray light curve of the extreme ultraluminous X-ray source NGC 5907 ULX1 (L$_\text{X,peak}$ ~ 5 × 10$^{40}$ erg s$^{-1}$), discovered during an extensive monitoring ...
