Strategy high energy observations and multiwavelength follow up
STRATEGY: HIGH ENERGY OBSERVATIONS and MULTIWAVELENGTH FOLLOW-UP

  • WHY

    Probe the inner regions  strong field limit of GR

    Unbiased (Unobscured) view of accretion history

  • AIMS

    Mapping physics and geometry of central BH

    Space density and evolution of obscured accreting BH

  • WHEN

    since early 2000 (launch of XMM and Chandra) based

    on the BeppoSAX heritage  up to the foreseen life of

    NASA and ESA cornerstones (2008-2010)

Smbh astrophysics
SMBH ASTROPHYSICS

  • Deep high energy observations of bright Seyfert galaxies and quasars

    • Direct (unabsorbed) probe of the disc/BH system inner regions

    • High quality spectroscopy (continuum + emission/absorption line parameters)

    • High throughput (variability, reverberation mapping)

    • High-quality imaging of high z QSO

  • Reverberation mapping in Opt/UV


Broad-band (0.1-100 keV) X-ray Observations of AGNs

Cappi et al., ‘99, Malaguti et al. ‘98, ‘01, etc. (single objects)

Dadina et al., in preparation ( all the AGNs (z<0.1) in BeppoSAX archive)

Primi spettri

  • Monitoraggio di QSO a Loiano

  • Zitelli e Stirpe + Trevese (Univ. Roma)

  • Avviato nel 2003

  • 2 PG QSO con z > 1, V  15

  • Osservazioni fotometriche e spettroscopiche a Loiano (1.5m) con cadenza mensile

  • Finalizzato a misurare il ritardo delle variazioni delle righe rispetto a quelle del continuo  ottenere dimensioni della Broad Line Region e, combinando con la larghezza delle righe, la massa del buco nero centrale

  • Non ancora fatto per alte luminosità


Vista variabilità, misura preliminare di ritardo (ca. 60 d) in UM 87

  • Monitoraggio di QSO ad alto z al VLT con ISAAC

  • Stirpe + Marconi e Salvati (Arcetri), Capetti (Torino), Axon e Robinson (Rochester, NY), Horne (St. Andrews)

  • Finalità simili al programma di Loiano, ma per z più alti e righe di ionizzazione più bassa

  • Avviato nel 2001, cadenze mensili in service mode (6 h/semestre)

  • 2 QSO con z=2.3, K=15


X ray lighthouses at the dawn of the modern universe c vignali
X-ray Lighthouses at the Dawn of the Modern Universe (C. Vignali)

>500 QSOs at z>4

~90 detected by Chandra/XMM

X-ray emission is a universal property of QSOs

Spectral shape constant

up to z=6

UV to X-ray ratio higher for brighter quasars


X ray cosmology
X-RAY COSMOLOGY Vignali)

  • HARD X-RAY SURVEYS

  • Insensitive to absorption up to large column densities (log NH < 24, Compton-thin)

  • Most direct probe of the super-massive black holes (SMBH) accretion activity recorded in the XRB spectral energy density

  • Test of XRB models  test of AGN unified schemes  physics and geometry of obscuring gas and dust

  • MULTIWAVELENGTH FOLLOW-UP

  • Optical Identifications

  • Redshift, Luminosity and Absorption distributions

  • X-ray properties (individual and stacked) of other classes non-AGN objects (Starburst, galaxies, EROs, etc..)
