We present a detailed spectral analysis of new XMM-Newton data of the source CXOC J100043.1+020637, also known as CID-42, detected in the COSMOS survey at z = 0.359. Previous works suggested that CID-42 is a candidate recoiling supermassive black hole (SMBH) showing also an inverted P-Cygni profile in the X-ray spectra at ∼6 keV (rest) with an iron emission line plus a redshifted absorption line (detected at 3σ in previous XMM-Newton and Chandra observations). Detailed analysis of the… 

The XMM deep survey in the CDF-S. IX. An X-ray outflow in a luminous obscured quasar at z~1.6

In active galactic nuclei (AGN)-galaxy co-evolution models, AGN winds and outflows are often invoked to explain why super-massive black holes and galaxies stop growing efficiently at a certain phase

Swift J2218.4+1925: a new hard-X-ray-selected polar observed with XMM–Newton

Swift J2218.4+1925, a hard X-ray source detected by Swift BAT, has been proposed as a candidate magnetic cataclysmic variable of the polar type from optical spectroscopy. Using XMM-Newton we perform

The 500 ks Chandra observation of the z = 6.31 QSO SDSS J1030 + 0524

We present the results from a ~ 500 ks Chandra observation of the z = 6.31 QSO SDSS J1030 + 0524. This is the deepest X-ray observation to date of a z ~ 6 QSO. The QSO is detected with a total of 125

X-Ray Redshifts for Obscured AGN: A Case Study in the J1030 Deep Field

We present a procedure to constrain the redshifts of obscured ( ) active galactic nuclei (AGN) based on low count statistics X-ray spectra, which can be adopted when photometric and/or spectroscopic

Discovery of optical outflows and inflows in the black hole candidate GRS 1716−249

We present optical spectroscopy obtained with the GTC, VLT and SALT telescopes during the decline of the 2016-2017 outburst of the black hole candidate GRS 1716-249 (Nova Oph 1993). Our 18-epoch data

Understanding the formation of the first black holes: deep observations of the most distant quasars

The existence of supermassive black holes powering quasars up to z ∼ 7.5 is a challenge for modern astrophysics. Recent simulations suggest that the most massive SMBHs at z ∼ 6 can only form within

Kicking gravitational wave detectors with recoiling black holes

Binary black holes emit gravitational radiation with net linear momentum leading to a retreat of the final remnant black hole that can reach up to $\sim5,000$ km/s. Full numerical relativity

A RUNAWAY BLACK HOLE IN COSMOS: GRAVITATIONAL WAVE OR SLINGSHOT RECOIL?

We present a detailed study of a peculiar source detected in the COSMOS survey at z = 0.359. Source CXOC J100043.1+020637, also known as CID-42, has two compact optical sources embedded in the same

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

We present Chandra High Resolution Camera observations of CID-42, a candidate recoiling supermassive black hole (SMBH) at z = 0.359 in the COSMOS survey. CID-42 shows two optical compact sources

Evidence for relativistic features in the X-ray spectrum of Mrk 335

We present an analysis of hard X-ray features in the spectrum of the bright Sy 1 galaxy Mrk 335 observed by the XMM-Newton satellite. Our analysis confirms the presence of a broad, ionized Fe Ka

An XMM–Newton survey of broad iron lines in Seyfert galaxies

We present an analysis of the X-ray spectra of a sample of 37 observations of 26 Seyfert galaxies observed by XMM–Newton in order to characterize their iron Kα emission. All objects show evidence for

X-ray absorption lines suggest matter infalling onto the central black-hole of Mrk 509

Evidence for both red- and blue-shifted absorption lines due to ionized Fe in the X-ray spectrum of the Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 509 is reported. These features appear to be transient on time-scales as
