We present an X-ray/UV/optical spectrum of the black hole primary in the X-ray nova XTE J1118+480 in quiescence at LX ? 4 ? 10-9LEdd. The Chandra, Hubble Space Telescope, and Multiple Mirror Telescope spectroscopic observations were performed simultaneously on 2002 January 12 UT. Because this 4.1 hr binary is located at b = 62?, the transmission of the interstellar medium is very high (e.g., 70% at 0.3 keV). We present many new results for the quiescent state, such as the first far-UV spectrum…

The Inclination Angle and Mass of the Black Hole in XTE J1118+480
We have obtained optical and infrared photometry of the quiescent soft X-ray transient XTE J1118+480. In addition to optical and J-band variations, we present the first observed H- and Ks-band
The 2005 outburst of the halo black hole x-ray transient xte j1118+480
We present optical and infrared monitoring of the 2005 outburst of the halo black hole X-ray transient XTE J1118+480. We measured a total outburst amplitude of ~5.7 ± 0.1 mag in the R band and ~5 mag
The quiescent X-ray spectrum of accreting black holes
The quiescent state is the dominant accretion mode for black holes on all mass scales. Our knowledge of the X-ray spectrum is limited due to the characteristic low luminosity in this state. Herein,
The Ultraviolet Spectral Energy Distributions of Quiescent Black Holes and Neutron Stars
We present HST/ACS ultraviolet photometry of three quiescent black hole X-ray transients: X-ray Nova Muscae 1991 (GU Mus), GRO J0422+32 (V518 Per), and X-ray Nova Vel 1993 (MM Vel), and one neutron

Chandra Detection of XTE J1650–500 in Quiescence and the Minimum Luminosity of Black Hole X-Ray Binaries
The Galactic black hole X-ray binary XTE J1650–500 entered a quiescent regime following the decline from the 2001-2002 outburst that led to its discovery. Here we report on the first detection of its


Complete and Simultaneous Spectral Observations of the Black-Hole X-ray Nova XTE J1118+480
The X-ray nova XTE J1118+480 suffers minimal extinction (b = 62 degrees) and therefore represents an outstanding opportunity for multiwavelength studies. Hynes et al. (2000) conducted the first such
Optical Outburst of the Halo Black Hole X-ray Transient XTE J1118+480
