XRAY - Master X-Ray Catalog

HEASARC
Archive

Overview

The XRAY database table contains selected parameters from almost all HEASARC X-ray catalogs that have source positions located to better than a few arcminutes. The XRAY database table was created by copying all of the entries and common parameters from the tables listed in the Component Tables section. The XRAY database table has many entries but relatively few parameters; it provides users with general information about X-ray sources, obtained from a variety of catalogs. XRAY is especially suitable for cone searches and cross-correlations with other databases. Each entry in XRAY has a parameter called 'database_table' which indicates from which original database the entry was copied; users can browse that original table should they wish to examine all of the parameter fields for a particular entry. For some entries in XRAY, some of the parameter fields may be blank (or have zero values); this indicates that the original database table did not contain that particular parameter or that it had this same value there.

The HEASARC in certain instances has included X-ray sources for which the quoted value for the specified band is an upper limit rather than a detection. The HEASARC recommends that the user should always check the original tables to get the complete information about the properties of the sources listed in the XRAY master source list.


Bulletin

The XRAY master catalog table was last updated on 24 October 2014.

Provenance

This master catalog is updated periodically whenever one of the component database tables is modified or a new component database table is added.

Caveats

(1) The larger the radius of the cone search used, the more chance there is of finding a spurious match with a random source rather than with the object/position specified. Given the several hundred thousand known X-ray sources contained in the XRAY table, there is a non-negligible (several percent) chance of finding an unrelated match even when using the default 3 arcminutes search radius. Most modern X-ray observatories s such as Chandra, XMM-Newton, ROSAT, etc., can locate source positions to 1 arcminute or better, notice, so that, to be conservative, you might want to reset the radius of the cone search to 1 or even 0.5 arcminutes.

(2) Some X-ray detectors have some sensitivity to ultraviolet light as well as to X-rays, i.e., they have what is called a UV light leak. Particular instruments which are known to have had this feature include the Einstein High Resolution Instrument (HRI), the EXOSAT Low-Energy Telescope Channel Multiplier Array (LET CMA), and the ROSAT HRI. Some objects rich in UV emission, such as stars of spectral types O, B, and A, may thus be listed in source catalogs obtained using these instruments, even though they were detected due to their UV emission rather than any intrinsic X-ray emission. For further information on the Einstein HRI UV leak, see Appendix B of Schmitt et al. (1985, ApJ, 290,307), and on the ROSAT HRI UV leak, see Barbera et al. (2000, ApJ, 545, 449). To estimate the EXOSAT LE UV leak, you can use the FTOOLS utility exoleuv (see http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/lheasoft/ftools/exosat.html for more information on this task).


Search Cone Radius

The default value for the radius of the cone search is 3 arcminutes, and is generally an appropriate, albeit liberal, value for many of the component tables. You can choose your own radius value, of course, but we suggest that you do not specify a radius larger than 60 arcminutes, as you will be likely get many spurious matches for larger search areas (see Caveats section below).

RA

                  rate derived using the 1.5 X 3 degree FWHM FOV of the 2nd
                  layer of the argon counter and both layers of a xenon counter.
                  One R15 count/sec equals about 2.17x10-11 ergs/cm2/sec in

                  rate is derived from the net counts, corrected for vignetting,

                  the livetime, corrected for instrumental dead time.
   * HRICFA     - The corrected HRI count rate, obtained by summing all counts
                  within a circle of radius 18 arc seconds centered on the
                  source position, and then applying the HRI correction factors
                  for exposure time, vignetting, deadtime, mirror scattering,
                  and quantum efficiency.
   * HRIDEEP    - The HRI count rate, corrected for vignetting, scattering, dead
                  time, and detector efficiency.

                  processing.
   * IPCDEEP    - The IPC count rate in the broad band (0.16-3.5 keV), corrected

                  to the HEAO-2 mirror. (See the help file for the IPCDEEP
                  database for more details).
   * IPCOSTARS  - The corrected IPC count rate or upper limit thereof, in the
                  broad band (0.2-3.5 keV). To determine whether this is a
                  detection or upper limit, go to the IPCOSTARS database: if
                  count_rate_flag = 1 for a source, the listed value is an upper
                  bound and not a detection.

                  the 0.2 to 4.0 keV band in units of ct/s. The
                  counts for each source were extracted within a circular region
                  of 3 arcmins radius centered on the source's catalog position.
   * EXSS       - The IPC photon ct/s for the aperture 1
                  (1.25 arcmin radius) detection.

                  time. It does not include the ARF correction, and, hence,
                  for some sources, will be an underestimate of the true count
                  rate.
   * GALCENCXO  - The hard-band X-ray (2 - 8 keV) count rate, in ct/s, calculated
                  by dividing the net counts in the source region by the

                  calculated by dividing the full-band counts by the total
                  exposure time. Note that, for sources near the center of the
                  FOV this is fairly accurate, but, for sources farther out
                  where the vignetting causes the effective exposure to be less
                  than that in the central region, the quoted count rate is a

Count_Rate_Error
The error in the X-ray count rate in ct/s.

Error_Radius
The radius of the 90-percent confidence error circle, in arcseconds. For the XMMSSC database, we have added the statistical and systematic position errors (which are given separately in that table) in quadrature in order to obtain the quoted value. For database tables for which this information is not explicitly given, the following estimates for the positional uncertainty can be made: (i) for Einstein IPC databases, a value of about 60 arc seconds should be approximately correct, except for the IPCSLEW database for which the authors (Elvis et al.) estimate 72 arc seconds; (ii) for the ASCASIS database, Eric Gotthelf estimates a typical value of 40 arc seconds, (iii) for the ROSPSPC and ROSHRI databases, the typical values are 10 - 30 and 4 - 10 arcseconds, respectively, with the larger uncertainties for sources which were detected at the edges of the fields of view, and (iv) for the XRBCAT and the HEAO 1 databases, the positions are only very approximate and should, in general, only be assumed to be accurate to the order of a degree, although some individual entries from these tables are much more accurate than this value.

Flux
The X-ray flux in a characteristic bandpass in units of erg/cm2/s. This quantity is usually obtained by multiplying the given count rate by a conversion factor.
