  • We present the results of a 40 ks Chandra observation of the quiescent stellar mass black hole GS 1354-64. A total of 266 net counts are detected at the position of this system. The resulting spectrum is found to be consistent with the spectra of previously observed quiescent black holes, i.e., a power law with a photon index of Γ ~ 2. The inferred luminosity in the 0.5-10 keV band is found to lie in the range 0.5-6.5 × 1034 erg s–1, where the uncertainty in the distance is the dominant source… CONTINUE READING
