Published Papers
Miscellaneous :

Landi et al. 2008 ATel 1539:
  • 2 2MASS sources in Swift error, one has a USNO B1.0 counterpart
  • X-ray data well described by an unabsorbed Γ~0.9 power law
  • F2-10 keV1.7 x 10-12 erg/cm2/s
Tomsick et al. 2009:
  • Chandra observation
  • Spectrum = absorbed powerlaw, NH=0.59 x 1022 cm-2, Γ=0.60
  • 2MASS source has J=15.84, H=15.27, Ks=14.77
  • Source has counterparts in USNO B1.0 et USNO A2.0 with R= 18.6 (resp. 17.6) and B=21.4 (resp B=20.3)
  • Not an AGN
  • Possible CV based on low optical extinction and X-ray spectrum
