Hard X-Ray Detector (HXD) on Board Suzaku
The Hard X-ray Detector (HXD) on board Suzaku covers a wide energy range from 10 keV to 600 keV by combination of silicon PIN diodes and GSO scintillators. The HXD is designed to achieve an extremely
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
A short γ-ray burst apparently associated with an elliptical galaxy at redshift z = 0.225
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) come in two classes: long (> 2 s), soft-spectrum bursts and short, hard events. Most progress has been made on understanding the long GRBs, which are typically observed at
White dwarf masses in intermediate polars observed with the Suzaku satellite
Context. White dwarfs (WDs) in cataclysmic variables (CVs) are important experimental laboratories where the electron degeneracy is taking place on a macroscopic scale. Magnetic CVs increase in
Study of Nonthermal Emission from SNR RX J1713.7–3946 with Suzaku
We present results obtained from a series of observations of the supernova remnant RX J1713.7–3946 by Suzaku. Hard X-rays have been detected up to ~40 keV. The hard X-ray spectra are described by a
Modeling and Reproducibility of Suzaku HXD PIN/GSO Background
Suzaku Hard X-ray Detector (HXD) achieved the lowest background level than any other previously or currently operational missions sensitive in the energy range of 10–600 keV, by utilizing PIN
XMM-Newton observation of the northwest radio relic region in A3667
A3667 is the archetype of a merging cluster with radio relics. The northwest (NW) radio relic is the brightest cluster relic or halo known and is believed to be due to a strong merger shock. We have
SUZAKU OBSERVATION OF A1689: ANISOTROPIC TEMPERATURE AND ENTROPY DISTRIBUTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THE LARGE-SCALE STRUCTURE
We present results of new, deep Suzaku X-ray observations (160 ks) of the intracluster medium (ICM) in A1689 out to its virial radius, combined with complementary data sets of the projected galaxy
The Japanese space gravitational wave antenna?DECIGO
DECi-hertz Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (DECIGO) is the future Japanese space gravitational wave antenna. It aims at detecting various kinds of gravitational waves between 1 mHz and
