• Physics
• 2017
We present the first NuSTAR observation of a ‘true’ type 2 Seyfert galaxy. The 3–40 keV X-ray spectrum of NGC 3147 is characterized by a simple power-law, with a standard Γ ∼ 1.7 and an iron emission

• Physics
• 2012
We present the results of a campaign of simultaneous X-ray and optical observations of ‘true’ type 2 Seyfert galaxies candidates, i.e. active galactic nuclei without a broad-line region (BLR). Out of

• Physics
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters
• 2019
NGC 3147 has been considered the best case of a true type 2 AGN: an unobscured AGN, based on the unabsorbed compact X-ray continuum, which lacks a broad-line region (BLR). However, the very low

• Physics
• 2014
We present the first subarcsecond-resolution mid-infrared (MIR) atlas of local active galactic nuclei (AGN). Our atlas contains 253 AGN with a median redshift of z = 0.016, and includes all publicly

• Physics
• 2015
We present an updated mid-infrared (MIR) versus X-ray correlation for the local active galactic nuclei (AGN) population based on the high angular resolution 12 and 18?m continuum fluxes from the AGN

### THE LOW-MASS, HIGHLY ACCRETING BLACK HOLE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEUS 2XMM J123103.2+110648

• Physics
• 2012
Optical spectra and images taken with the Baade 6.5 m Magellan telescope confirm that 2XMM J123103.2+110648, a highly variable X-ray source with an unusually soft spectrum, is indeed associated with

### AN UNOBSCURED TYPE II QUASAR CANDIDATE: SDSS J012032.19-005501.9

• Y. Li
• Physics
• 2014
We report the finding of an unobscured type II active galactic nucleus (AGN) candidate, SDSS J012032.19-005501.9, at a relatively high redshift of 0.601, which shows a number of unusual properties.

### The column density distribution of hard X-ray radio galaxies

• Physics
• 2016
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

• Physics
The Astrophysical Journal
• 2018
We present combined ≈14–37 ks Chandra observations of seven z = 1.6–2.7 broad absorption line (BAL) quasars selected from the Large Bright Quasar Survey (LBQS). These seven objects are

• Physics
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society
• 2020
We investigate the infrared colours and spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of 338 X-ray selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) from the Swift/Burst Alert Telescope (BAT) 105-month survey

### NGC3147: a "true" Seyfert 2 without the broad-line region

• Physics
• 2007
We report on simultaneous optical and X-ray observations of the Seyfert galaxy, NGC3147. The XMM-Newton spectrum shows that the source is unabsorbed in the X-rays ($N_H<5\times10^{20}$ cm$^{-2}$). On

• Physics
• 2002
Based on observations of the Seyfert nucleus in NGC 1068 with ASCA, RXTE, and BeppoSAX, we report the discovery of a flare (increase in flux by a factor of ~1.6) in the 6.7 keV Fe K line component

• Physics
• 2011
NGC 3147, NGC 4698, and 1ES 1927+654 are active galaxies that are classified as Seyfert 2s, based on the line ratios of strong narrow emission lines in their optical spectra. However, they exhibit
