I An XMM-Newton observation of the bright quasi-stellar object PG 1211+143 was previously reported to show evidence for a massive, energetic outflow, with an outflow velocity of v ∼0.1c based on the identification of blueshifted absorption lines detected in both EPIC and Reflection Grating Spectrometer (RGS) spectra. Subsequently, an order of magnitude lower velocity has been claimed from an ion-by-ion model fit to the RGS data. We show here, in a re-analysis of the higher signal-to-noise ratio…

An extended XMM–Newton observation of the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4051 has revealed a rich absorption line spectrum indicating the presence of a photoionized outflow with a wide range of velocities and
Quantifying the fast outflow in the luminous Seyfert galaxy PG1211+143
We report two new XMM–Newton observations of PG1211+143 in 2007 December, again finding evidence for the fast outflow of highly ionized gas first detected in 2001. Stacking the new spectra with those

An extended XMM–Newton observation of the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4051 in 2009 detected a photoionized outflow with a complex absorption-line velocity structure and a broad correlation of velocity with
Is the X‐ray spectrum of the narrow emission line QSO PG1211+143 defined by its energetic outflow?
An XMM-Newton observation of the bright QSO PG 1211 1+143 in 2001 revealed a blueshifted absorption line spectrum indicative of a high-velocity radial outflow of highly ionized gas. Unless highly
CONFIRMATION OF AND VARIABLE ENERGY INJECTION BY A NEAR-RELATIVISTIC OUTFLOW IN APM 08279+5255
We present results from multi-epoch spectral analysis of XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the broad absorption line (BAL) quasar APM 08279+5255. Our analysis shows significant X-ray BALs in all
X-Ray Observations of Powerful AGN Outflows
Highly ionised winds with velocities ∼0.1–0.2c were first detected in X-ray spectra of non-BAL AGN a decade ago. Subsequent observations and archival searches have shown such winds to be a common
Black Hole Outflows
I show that Eddington accretion episodes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) are likely to produce winds with velocities υ ~ 0.1c and ionization parameters up to ξ ~ 10 4 (cgs), implying the presence of
X-ray evidence for a mildly relativistic and variable outflow in the luminous Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 509
Context. There is growing evidence for the presence of blueshifted Fe K absorption lines in a number of radio-quiet AGNs and QSOs. These may be fundamental to probe flow dynamics near supermassive
Testing relativistic reflection and resolving outflows in PG 1211+143 with XMM-Newton and NuSTAR
We analyze the broad-band X-ray spectrum (0.3-50 keV) of the luminous Seyfert 1 / quasar PG 1211+143 - the archetypal source for high-velocity X-ray outflows - using near-simultaneous XMM-Newton and

We present results from multi-epoch spectral analysis of XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the mini-broad absorption line (BAL) quasar PG 1115+080. This is one of the few X-ray-detected mini-BAL

The High-Velocity Outflow of PG 1211+143 May Not Be That Fast
We analyze the X-ray spectrum of the quasar PG 1211+143 observed with the CCD and grating spectrometers on board XMM-Newton. Using an ion-by-ion fitting model, we find an outflow component of about
An XMM–Newton observation of Mkn 3 – a Seyfert galaxy just over the edge
A 100-ks XMM–Newton observation of the nearby Seyfert 2 galaxy Mkn 3 offers a unique opportunity to explore the complexity of its X-ray spectrum. We find the ∼3–8 keV continuum to be dominated by

The role of absorption and reflection in the soft X-ray excess of active galactic nuclei. I. Preliminary results
The 2-10 keV continuum of AGN is well represented by a single power law, generally attributed to a hot comptonizing medium, such as a corona above the accretion disk. At smaller energies the
