An observation of the radio galaxy 3C 295 during the calibration phase of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory reveals X-ray emission from the core of the galaxy, from each of the two prominent radio hot spots, and from the previously known cluster gas. We discuss the possible emission processes for the hot spots and argue that a synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) model is preferred for most or all of the observed X-ray emission. SSC models with near-equipartition fields thus explain the X-ray emission… Expand

Chandra Detection of the Radio and Optical Double Hot Spot of 3c 351
In this Letter, we report a Chandra X-ray detection of the double northern hot spot of the radio quasar 3C 351. The hot spot has also been observed in the optical with the Hubble Space Telescope (RExpand
Chandra X-ray observations of the 3C 295 cluster core
We examine the properties of the X-ray gas in the central regions of the distant (z=0.46), X-ray luminous cluster of galaxies surrounding the powerful radio source 3C 295, using observations madeExpand
Extended X-ray emission around four 3C quasars at 0.55 > z < 0.75 observed with Chandra
We report on the detection of a soft spatially extended component of X-ray emission around four intermediate-redshift 3C quasars observed with Chandra: 3C 254, 3C 263, 3C 275.1 and 3C 281. TheExpand
0.5 Mpc-scale extended X-ray emission in the z= 2.48 radio galaxy 4C 23.56
We present an XMM-Newton observation of the radio galaxy 4C 23.56 at z = 2.48 which reveals extended X-ray emission coincident with the radio lobes spanning ∼0.5 Mpc. These are the largestExpand
Constraints on the Cluster Environments and Hot Spot Magnetic Field Strengths of the Radio Sources 3C 280 and 3C 254
We present new Chandra Observatory observations together with archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and radio observations of 3C 254, a radio quasar at z = 0.734, and 3C 280, a radio galaxy at z =Expand
Current Problems for X-ray Emission from Radio Jets
A list is presented of known extragalactic radio jets which also have associated X-ray emission. The canonical emission processes for the production of X-rays are reviewed and the sources areExpand
RAiSE X: searching for radio galaxies in X-ray surveys
We model the X-ray surface brightness distribution of emission associated with Fanaroff & Riley type-II radio galaxies. Our approach builds on the RAiSE dynamical model which describes broadbandExpand
Anisotropic inverse Compton scattering in powerful radio galaxies: the case of 3C 295
Inverse Compton (IC) scattering of nuclear photons with relativistic electrons in the lobes of powerful radio galaxies and quasars can give detectable extended X-ray emission from the radio lobes ifExpand
Chandra finds that X-ray jets are common in low-power radio galaxies
We present results for the first three low-power radio galaxi es from the B2 bright sample to have been observed with Chandra. Two have kpc-scale radio jets, and in both Chandra resolves jet X-rayExpand
X-Ray Synchrotron Spectral Hardenings from Compton and Synchrotron Losses in Extended Chandra Jets
Chandra observations of knots and hot spots in spatially resolved X-ray jets of radio galaxies show that the X-ray fluxes often lie above an extrapolation from the radio-to-optical continuum fluxes.Expand
