In the most recent IBIS survey based on observations performed during the first 1000 orbits of INTEGRAL, are listed 363 high-energy emitters firmly associated with AGN, 107 of which are reported here for the first time. We have used X-ray data to image the IBIS 90 per cent error circle of all the AGN in the sample of 107, in order to obtain the correct X-ray counterparts, locate them with arcsec accuracy and therefore pinpoint the correct optical counterparts. This procedure has led to the…

Investigating the X-ray counterparts to unidentified sources in the 1000-orbit INTEGRAL/IBIS catalogue
The latest INTEGRAL/IBIS all-sky survey lists 219 hard X-ray sources whose nature is still unknown. We report on our ongoing campaign aimed at identifying these high-energy emitters by exploiting the
Soft gamma-ray selected giant radio galaxies: an update
We present an update on the sample of soft gamma-ray selected giant radio galaxies (GRGs) extracted from INTEGRAL/IBIS and Swift/BAT surveys; it includes 8 new sources and one candidate object. In
BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey. I. Spectral Measurements, Derived Quantities, and AGN Demographics
We present the first catalog and data release of the Swift-BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey. We analyze optical spectra of the majority of the detected AGNs (77%, 642/836)based on their 14–195 keV
X-ray absorption in INTEGRAL AGN: Host galaxy inclination
In this work the INTEGRAL hard X-ray selected sample of AGN has been used to investigate the possible contribution of absorbing material distributed within the host galaxies to the total amount of NH
The column density distribution of hard X-ray radio galaxies
In order to investigate the role of absorption in AGN with jets, we have studied the column density distribution of a hard X-ray selected sample of radio galaxies, derived from the INTEGRAL/IBIS and
Water megamaser emission in hard X-ray selected AGN
Context. Water megamaser emission at 22 GHz has proven to be a powerful tool for astrophysical studies of active galactic nuclei (AGN) because it allows an accurate determination of the mass of the
X-ray absorption in INTEGRAL active galactic nuclei
In this work the INTEGRAL hard X-ray selected sample of active galactic nuclei (AGN) has been used to investigate the possible contribution of absorbing material distributed within the host galaxies
Narrow Line Seyfert 1s in the IBISCO Sample
We present the broad-band soft and hard X-ray spectral analysis of 8 Narrow Line Seyfert 1 galaxies extracted from the IBISCO Sample. The study also focuses on the properties of the NLS1 in our
The 105-Month Swift-BAT All-sky Hard X-Ray Survey
We present a catalog of hard X-ray sources detected in the first 105 months of observations with the Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) coded-mask imager on board the Swift observatory. The 105-month


Swift XRT Observation of 34 New INTEGRAL IBIS AGNs: Discovery of Compton-Thick and Other Peculiar Sources
For a significant number of the sources detected at high energies (>10 keV) by the INTEGRAL IBIS and Swift BAT instruments there is either a lack information about them in the 2-10 keV range or they
XMM–Newton observations of unidentified INTEGRAL/IBIS sources
About 30 per cent of the sources in the fourth INTEGRAL/IBIS catalogue are unidentified in that they lack an optical counterpart. To be able to classify them, X-ray observations are of crucial
The INTEGRAL/IBIS AGN catalogue - I. X-ray absorption properties versus optical classification
In this work we present the most comprehensive INTEGRAL active galactic nucleus (AGN) sample. It lists 272 AGN for which we have secure optical identifications, precise optical spectroscopy and
Swift/XRT observations of unidentified INTEGRAL/IBIS sources
The most recent IBIS/ISGRI survey, i.e. the fourth one, lists 723 hard X-ray sources, many still unidentified, i.e. lacking an X-ray counterpart or simply not studied at lower energies, i.e. below 10
Here we report an all-sky soft gamma-ray source catalog based on IBIS observations performed during the first 1000 orbits of INTEGRAL. The database for the construction of the source list consists of
Accurate classification of 28 objects detected in the 39 months Palermo Swift/BAT hard X-ray catalogue
Through an optical campaign performed at 4 telescopes located in the northern and the southern hemispheres, plus archival data from two on-line sky surveys, we have obtained optical spectroscopy for
Searching for AGNs among unidentified INTEGRAL sources
We report on a new method to identify Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) among unidentified INTEGRAL sources. This method consists of cross-correlating unidentified sources listed in the fourth IBIS Survey
Flat-spectrum radio sources as likely counterparts of unidentified INTEGRAL sources (Research Note)
Many sources in the fourth INTEGRAL/IBIS catalogue are still unidentified since they lack an optical counterpart. An important tool that can help in identifying and classifying these sources is the
