Study of the X-Ray Background Spectrum and its Large-Scale Fluctuation with ASCA

Abstract

We studied the energy spectrum and the large-scale fluctuation of the X-ray background with the ASCA GIS instrument based on the ASCA Medium Sensitivity Survey and Large Sky Survey observations. A total of 91 fields with Galactic latitude |b|>10◦ was selected, with the sky coverage of 50 deg and 4.2 Ms of exposure. For each field, non X-ray events were… (More)
