Recent XMM-Newton observations of the black hole candidate 4U 1630-47 during the 2012 outburst revealed three relativistically Doppler-shifted emission lines that were interpreted as arising from baryonic matter in the jet of this source. Here, we reanalyse those data and find an alternative model that, with less free parameters than the model with Doppler-shifted emission lines, fits the data well. In our model we allow the abundance of S and Fe in the interstellar material along the line of…

A Comprehensive Chandra Study of the Disk Wind in the Black Hole Candidate 4U 1630-472
The mechanisms that drive disk winds are a window into the physical processes that underlie the disk. Stellar-mass black holes are an ideal setting in which to explore these mechanisms, in part
A Dust-scattering Halo of 4U 1630-47 Observed with Chandra and Swift: New Constraints on the Source Distance
We have observed the Galactic black hole transient 4U 1630‑47 during the decay of its 2016 outburst with Chandra and Swift to investigate the properties of the dust-scattering halo created by the
The reflection component in the average and heartbeat spectra of the black hole candidate IGR J17091-3642 during the 2016 outburst
We present simultaneous NuSTAR and Swift observations of the black hole transient IGR J17091-3642 during its 2016 outburst. By jointly fitting six NuSTAR and four Swift spectra, we found that during
AstroSat and Chandra View of the High Soft State of 4U 1630–47 (4U 1630–472): Evidence of the Disk Wind and a Rapidly Spinning Black Hole
We present the X-ray spectral and timing analysis of the transient black hole X-ray binary 4U 1630-47, observed with the AstroSat, Chandra and MAXI space missions during its soft X-ray outburst in


XMM-Newton observations reveal the disappearance of the wind in 4U 1630−47
We report on XMM-Newton observations of the black hole X-ray binary 4U 1630−47 during its 2012−2013 outburst. The first five observations monitor the source as its luminosity increases across the
Disk emission and atmospheric absorption lines in black hole candidate 4U 1630-472
Context. We analyzed Suzaku data of the black hole candidate 4U 1630-472 when it was in the high/soft state. The source, known for X-ray outbursts and for absorption dips, has an X-ray continuum
The similarity of broad iron lines in X-ray binaries and active galactic nuclei
We have compared the 2001 XMM–Newton spectra of the stellar mass black hole binary XTE J1650−500 and the active galaxy MCG–6-30-15, focusing on the broad, excess emission features at ∼4–7 keV
Suzaku Observation of the Black Hole Binary 4U 1630--47 in the Very High State
We report the results from an X-ray and near-infrared observation of the Galactic black hole binary 4U 1630--47 in the very high state, performed with {\it Suzaku} and IRSF around the peak of the
The Disk Wind in the Rapidly Spinning Stellar-mass Black Hole 4U 1630-472 Observed with NuSTAR
We present an analysis of a short NuSTAR observation of the stellar-mass black hole and low-mass X-ray binary 4U 1630−472. Reflection from the inner accretion disk is clearly detected for the first
Three spectral states of the disk X-ray emission of the black-hole candidate 4U 1630-47
We studied a time history of X-ray spectral states of a black-hole candidate, 4U 1630-47, utilizing data from a number of monitoring observations with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer over 1996--2004.
Baryons in the relativistic jets of the stellar-mass black-hole candidate 4U 1630-47
It is argued that Doppler-shifted X-ray emission lines arise from baryonic matter in a jet travelling at approximately two-thirds the speed of light, thereby establishing the presence of baryons in the jet.
Powerful, Rotating Disk Winds from Stellar-mass Black Holes
We present an analysis of ionized X-ray disk winds observed in the Fe K band of four stellar-mass black holes observed with Chandra, including 4U 1630-47, GRO J1655-40, H 1743-322, and GRS 1915+105.
A light bending model for the X-ray temporal and spectral properties of accreting black holes
Some of the X-ray temporal and spectral properties of accreting black holes represent a challenge for current theoretical models. In particular, uncorrelated variability between direct continuum and
On the determination of the spin of the black hole in Cyg X-1 from X-ray reflection spectra
The spin of Cygnus X-1 is measured by fitting reflection models to Suzaku data covering the energy band 0.9–400 keV. The inner radius of the accretion disc is found to lie within 2 gravitational
