Abstract An all-sky comprehensive catalogue of calculated radio and X-ray associations to optical objects is presented. Included are X-ray sources from XMM-Newton, Chandra and ROSAT catalogues, radio sources from NVSS, FIRST and SUMSS catalogues, and optical data, identifications and redshifts from the APM, USNO-A, SDSS-DR7 and the extant literature. This ‘Atlas of Radio/X-ray Associations’ inherits many techniques from the predecessor (2004) catalogue, but object selection is… Expand

X-ray population study of the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy
This thesis presents the analysis of five XMM-Newton observations of the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy (dSph) in X-rays. We performed source detection separately for each image in each observationExpand
Swift follow-up of unidentified X-ray sources in the XMM–Newton Slew Survey
We present deep Swift follow-up observations of a sample of 94 unidentified X-ray sources from the XMM―Newton Slew Survey. The X-ray Telescope (XRT) on-board Swift detected 29 per cent of the sampleExpand
XMM-Newton view of X-ray overdensities from nearby galaxy clusters: the environmental dependencies
In this work, we studied ten nearby (z≤0.038) galaxy clusters to understand possible interactions between hot plasma and member galaxies. A multi-band source detection was applied to detectExpand
X-ray stars observed in LAMOST spectral survey
X-ray stars have been studied since the beginning of X-ray astronomy. Investigating and studying the chromospheric activity from X-ray stellar optical spectra is highly significant in providingExpand
A XMM-Newton observation of a sample of four close dwarf spheroidal galaxies
We present the results of the analysis of deep archival \sat\ observations towards the dwarf spheroidal galaxies Draco, Leo I, Ursa Major II and Ursa Minor in the Milky Way neighbourhood. The X-rayExpand
X-ray Observations of Eight Young Open Star Clusters: I. Membership and X-ray Luminosity
We present a detailed investigation of X-ray source contents of eight young open clusters with ages between 4 to 46 Myr using archival X-ray data from XMM-Newton. The probable cluster memberships ofExpand

Abstract A quasar catalogue is presented with a total of 510 764 objects including 424 748 type 1 QSOs and 26 623 type 1 AGN complete from the literature to 2015 January 25. Also included are 25015Expand
New quasars behind the Magellanic Clouds. Spectroscopic confirmation of near-infrared selected candidates
Context. Quasi-stellar objects (quasars) located behind nearby galaxies provide an excellent absolute reference system for astrometric studies, but they are difficult to identify because of fore- andExpand
Radio stars observed in the LAMOST spectral survey
Radio stars have attracted astronomers’ attention for several decades. To better understand the physics behind stellar radio emissions, it is important to study their optical behaviors. The LAMOSTExpand


Chandra Multiwavelength Project X‐Ray Point Source Catalog
We present the Chandra Multiwavelength Project (ChaMP) X-ray point source catalog with ~6800 X-ray sources detected in 149 Chandra observations covering ~10 deg2. The full ChaMP catalog sample is 7Expand
A Catalog of 1.4 GHz Radio Sources from the FIRST Survey
We present a catalog of 138,665 radio sources derived from the initial 1550 deg2 of the FIRST survey. The survey parameters are reviewed, and a map depicting the coverage for the first two observingExpand
Efficient photometric selection of quasars from the sloan digital sky survey: 100,000 z < 3 quasars from data release one
We present a catalog of 1,172,157 quasar candidates selected from the photometric imaging data of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The objects are all point sources to a limiting magnitude of i =Expand
The 2dF QSO Redshift Survey – XII. The spectroscopic catalogue and luminosity function
We present the final catalogue of the 2dF QSO Redshift Survey (2QZ), based on Anglo-Australian Telescope 2dF spectroscopic observations of 44 576 colour-selected (ub J r) objects with 18.25 < b J <Expand
The 6dF Galaxy Survey: final redshift release (DR3) and southern large-scale structures
We report the final redshift release of the 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS), a combined redshift and peculiar velocity survey over the southern sky (|b| > 10°). Its 136 304 spectra have yielded 110 256 newExpand
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: spectra and redshifts
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) is designed to measure redshifts for approximately 250 000 galaxies. This paper describes the survey design, the spectroscopic observations, the redshiftExpand
