X-Ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) on Board Suzaku
The XIS is an X-ray Imaging Spectrometer system, consisting of state-of-the-art charge-coupled devices (CCDs) optimized for X-ray detection, camera bodies, and control electronics. Four sets of XIS
The X-Ray Observatory Suzaku
High-sensitivity wide-band X-ray spectroscopy is the key feature of the Suzaku X-ray observatory, launched on 2005 July 10. This paper summarizes the spacecraft, in-orbit performance, operations, and
The MAXI Mission on the ISS: Science and Instruments for Monitoring All-Sky X-Ray Images
The Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) mission is the first astronomical payload to be installed on the Japanese Experiment Module — Exposed Facility (JEM-EF or Kibo-EF) on the International Space
Reproducibility of Non-X-ray Background for the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer aboard Suzaku
One of the advantages of the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) system on board Suzaku is its low and stable non-X-ray background (NXB). In order to make the best use of this advantage, modeling the
ASCA observations of the Large Magellanic Cloud supernova remnant sample: Typing supernovae from their remnants
We present our first results from a study of the supernova remnants (SNRs) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) using data from ASCA. The three remnants we have analyzed to date, 0509-67.5, 0519-69.0,
RX J0852.0–4622: Another Nonthermal Shell-Type Supernova Remnant (G266.2–1.2)
The newly discovered supernova remnant G266.2-1.2 (RX J0852.0-4622), along the line of sight to the Vela supernova remnant (SNR), was observed with ASCA for 120 ks. We find that the X-ray spectrum is
Localization and broadband follow-up of the gravitational-wave transient GW150914
A gravitational-wave (GW) transient was identified in data recorded by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors on 2015 September 14. The event, initially
X-RAY MEASURED DYNAMICS OF TYCHO'S SUPERNOVA REMNANT
We present X-ray proper-motion measurements of the forward shock and reverse-shocked ejecta in Tycho's supernova remnant, based on three sets of archival Chandra data taken in 2000, 2003, and 2007.
THE FIRST X-RAY PROPER-MOTION MEASUREMENTS OF THE FORWARD SHOCK IN THE NORTHEASTERN LIMB OF SN 1006
We report on the first X-ray proper-motion measurements of the nonthermally dominated forward shock in the northeastern limb of SN 1006, based on two Chandra observations taken in 2000 and 2008. We
The Slow X-Ray Expansion of the Northwestern Rim of the Supernova Remnant RX J0852.0–4622
The detection of the radioactive decay line of 44Ti provides unique evidence that the γ-ray source is a young (<1000 yr) supernova remnant because of the short 44Ti lifetime of ~90 yr. Only two
