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
Gravitationally redshifted emission implying an accretion disk and massive black hole in the active galaxy MCG–6–30–15
ACTIVE galactic nuclei and quasars are probably powered by the accretion of gas onto a supermassive black hole at the centre of the host galaxy1, but direct confirmation of the presence of a black
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
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
On why the iron K-shell absorption in AGN is not a signature of the local warm/hot intergalactic medium
We present a comparison between the 2001 XMM–Newton and 2005 Suzaku observations of the quasar, PG 1211+143, at z= 0.0809. Variability is observed in the 7 keV iron K-shell absorption line (at 7.6
The variable iron K emission line in MCG-6-30-15
We report on the variability of the iron K emission line in the Seyfert 1 galaxy MCG– 6-30-15 during a four-day ASCA observation. The line consists of a narrow core at an energy of about 6.4 keV, and
Evidence for Solar-Wind Charge-Exchange X-Ray Emission from the Earth's Magnetosheath(Chapter 4. Warm and Hot IntraGalactic Medium, The Extreme Universe in the Suzaku Era)
We report an apparent detection of the C VI 4p to 1s transition line at 459eV, during a long-term enhancement (LTE) in the Suzaku north ecliptic pole observation of 2005 September 2. The observed
Characteristic X-Ray Variability of TeV Blazars: Probing the Link between the Jet and the Central Engine
We have studied the rapid X-ray variability of three extragalactic TeV γ-ray sources: Mrk 421, Mrk 501, and PKS 2155-304. Analyzing the X-ray light curves obtained from ASCA and/or Rossi X-Ray Timing
Suzaku Observations of Abell 1795: Cluster Emission to r200
We report Suzaku observations of the galaxy cluster Abell 1795 that extend to r200 �2 Mpc, the radius within which the mean cluster mass density is 200 times the cosmic critical density. These
X-Ray Temperature and Mass Measurements to the Virial Radius of Abell 1413 with Suzaku
We present X-ray observations of the northern outskirts of the relaxed galaxy cluster A1413 with Suzaku, whose XIS instrument has the low intrinsic background needed to make measurements of these low
