We investigate the γ-ray and X-ray properties of the flat spectrum radio quasar (FSRQ) 4C 50.11 at redshift z = 1.517. The Fermi-LAT data indicate that this source was in an active state since July 2013. During this active period, the source’s emission appeared harder in γ-rays, with the flux having increased by more than a factor of three. We analyze two distinct flares seen in the active state and find that the variability is as short as several hours. The Swift-XRT data show that the source…

Swift Observations of High-Redshift Radio-loud Quasars

We report on Swift observations of four z > 2 radio-loud quasars (0212+735, 0537-286, 0836+710, and 2149-307), classified as blazars. The sources, well-known emitters at soft-to-medium X-rays, were
