A Comparison of Intermediate-mass Black Hole Candidate Ultraluminous X-ray Sources and Stellar-mass Black Holes

Abstract

Cool thermal emission components have recently been revealed in the X-ray spectra of a small number of ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) with ergs s 1 in nearby galaxies. These components can be well 40 L ≥ 10 X fitted with accretion disk models, with temperatures approximately 5–10 times lower than disk temperatures measured in stellar-mass Galactic black… (More)
