X-ray properties of LINERs

Abstract

We present an investigation of the X-ray properties of 13 LINERs based on ROSAT all-sky survey and pointed PSPC and HRI observations. Several sources are studied for the first time in X-rays. The X-ray spectra are best described by a powerlaw with photon index Γx ≈ –2.0 or thermal emission from gas with very subsolar abundances. The luminosities range… (More)
