We present an extensive X-ray spectral analysis of the cores of 19 Faranoff-Riley type II sources in the redshift range 0.5 < z < 1.0 which were selected to be matched in isotropic radio power. The sample consists of 10 radio galaxies (RGs) and nine quasars. We compare our results with the expectations from a unification model that ascribes the difference between these two types of sources to the viewing angle to the line of sight, beaming and the presence of a dust and gas torus. We find that… 
High‐redshift Fanaroff–Riley type II radio sources: large‐scale X‐ray environment
We investigate the properties of the environment around 20 powerful radio galaxies and quasars at redshifts between 0.45 and 1. Using XMM-Newton and Chandra observations we probe the spatial
The X-ray nuclei of intermediate-redshift radio sources
We present a Chandra and XMM-Newtonspectral analysis of the nuclei of the radio galaxies and radio-loud quasars from the 3CRR sample in the redshift range 0.1 < z < 0.5. In the range of radio
The active nuclei of z < 1.0 3CRR radio sources
We combine Chandraand XMM-NewtonX-ray data from our previous papers with new X-ray observations and with Spitzer mid-infrared data in order to study the nature of the nuclei o f radio galaxies and
3C 33: another case of photoionized soft X-ray emission in radio galaxies
All the observations available in the Chandra and XMM-Newton archives have been used to investigate the X-ray spectral properties of 3C 33. In this paper is presented a complete X-ray analysis of the
X-Ray Properties of the Gigahertz Peaked and Compact Steep Spectrum Sources
We present Chandra X-ray Observatory observations of gigahertz peaked-spectrum (GPS) and compact steep spectrum (CSS) radio sources. The Chandra sample contains 13 quasars and 3 galaxies, with
Broad-band Jet Emission in Young and Powerful Radio Sources: the Case of the CSS Quasar 3C 186
We present the X-ray analysis of a deep ~200 ksec Chandra observation of the compact steep spectrum radio-loud quasar 3C 186 (z=1.06) and investigate the contribution of the unresolved radio jet to
Chandra X-Ray Observations of the Redshift 1.53 Radio-loud Quasar 3C 270.1.
Chandra X-ray observations of the high redshift (z = 1.532) radio-loud quasar 3C 270.1 in 2008 February show the nucleus to have a power-law spectrum, Γ = 1.66 ± 0.08, typical of a radio-loud quasar,
The hard X-ray view of Giga-Hertz Peaked Spectrum Radio Galaxies
This paper presents the X-ray properties of a flux- and volume-limited complete sample of 16 Giga-Hertz Peaked Spectrum (GPS) galaxies. This study addresses three basic questions in our understanding
Galaxy gas ejection in radio galaxies: the case of 3C 35
We report results from XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the nearby (z = 0.067) giant radio galaxy 3C35. We find evidence for an X-ray emitting gas belt, orthogonal to and lying between the
Study of LINER sources with broad Hα emission - Spectral energy distribution and multiwavelength correlations
(Abridged) We attempt to infer the accretion mechanism and radiative processes giving rise to the SEDs of a well-defined optically-selected sample of LINERs showing a definite detection of broad


Dust emission from 3C radio galaxies and quasars: New ISO observations favour the unified scheme
In order to test the unied scheme for luminous radio galaxies and quasars we observed 10 galaxy/quasar pairs from the 3CR catalogue with ISOPHOT at infrared wavelengths between 5 and 180 m. Each pair
Chandra observations of nuclear X-ray emission from a sample of radio sources
We present the X-ray properties of a sample of 17 radio sources observed with the Chandra X-ray Observatory as part of a project aimed at studying the X-ray emission from their radio jets. In this
Far-Infrared Observations of Radio Quasars and FR II Radio Galaxies
We report MIPS photometry of 20 radio-loud quasars and galaxies at 24 and 70 μm (and of five at 160 μm). We combine this sample with additional sources detected in the far-infrared by IRAS and ISO
We present the results of XMM-Newton observations of three high-redshift powerful radio galaxies 3C 184, 3C 292 and 3C 322. Although none of the sources lies in as rich an X-rayemitting environment
