Large-scale extragalactic jets in the Chandra era. I. Data reduction and analysis.


Abstract (from CDS):

In this paper, we report the first stages of an investigation into the X-ray properties of extragalactic jets. Our approach is to subject all sources for which X-ray emission has been detected by Chandra to uniform reduction procedures. Using Chandra archival data for 106 such sources, we measure X-ray fluxes in three bands and compare these to radio fluxes. We discuss the sample, the reduction methods, and present first results for the ratio of X-ray to radio flux for jet knots and hotspots. In particular, we apply statistical tests to various distributions of key observational parameters to evaluate differences between the different classes of sources. Subsequent papers will deal with various ramifications such as considerations of how well the observational data fulfill expectations of the different radiation processes proposed for the knots of FRI radio galaxies and quasars.
