Abstract (from CDS):

We have detected 523 sources in a survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) Wing with Chandra. By cross-correlating the X-ray data with optical and near-infrared catalogues, we have found 300 matches. Using a technique that combines X-ray colours and X-ray to optical flux ratios, we have been able to assign preliminary classifications to 265 of the objects. Our identifications include four pulsars, one high-mass X-ray binary (HMXB) candidate, 34 stars and 185 active galactic nuclei (AGN). In addition, we have classified 32 sources as `hard' AGN which are likely absorbed by local gas and dust, and nine `soft' AGN whose nature is still unclear. Considering the abundance of HMXBs discovered so far in the Bar of the SMC the number that we have detected in the Wing is low.
