AEGISXDCXO - AEGIS-X Deep Survey Chandra X-Ray Point Source Catalog

Overview

This table is based on the results of deep Chandra imaging of the central region of the Extended Groth Strip, the AEGIS-X Deep (AEGIS-XD) survey. When combined with previous Chandra observations of a wider area of the strip, AEGIS-X Wide (AEGIS-XW), these provide data to a nominal exposure depth of 800ks in the three central ACIS-I fields, a region of approximately 0.29 deg2. This is currently the third deepest X-ray survey in existence; a factor ~2-3 shallower than the Chandra Deep Fields (CDFs), but over an area ~3 times greater than each CDF. This table contains a catalog of 937 point sources detected in the deep Chandra observations, along with identifications of the X-ray sources from deep ground-based, Spitzer, GALEX, and Hubble Space Telescope imaging. Using a likelihood ratio analysis, the authors associate multiband counterparts for 929/937 of their X-ray sources, with an estimated 95% reliability,making the identification completeness approximately 94% in a statistical sense. Reliable spectroscopic redshifts for 353 of the X-ray sources are available predominantly from Keck (DEEP2/3) and MMT Hectospec, so the current spectroscopic completeness is ~38%. For the remainder of the X-ray sources, the authors compute photometric redshifts based on multiband photometry in up to 35 bands from the UV to mid-IR. Particular attention is given to the fact that the vast majority of the X-ray sources are active galactic nuclei and require hybrid templates. The photometric redshifts have a mean accuracy sigma = 0.04 and an outlier fraction of approximately 5%, reaching sigma = 0.03 with less than 4% outliers in the area covered by CANDELS.

The new AEGIS-XD Chandra data were taken at three nominal pointing positions, which the authors have designated AEGIS-1, AEGIS-2, and AEGIS-3. These observations were all taken in the time period 2007 December 11 to 2009 June 26 using the ACIS-I instrument. The centers of the 3 AEGIS fields correspond fairly closely to those of the EGS-3, EGS-4, and EGS-5 fields of Laird et al. (2009, ApJS, 180, 102).

The Rainbow Cosmological Surveys Database (http://rainbowx.fis.ucm.es/Rainbow_Database/Home.html; see Section 4 of the reference paper for more details) contains many multiwavelength photometric datasets giving information on optical and infrared sources in these fields. The characteristics of these datasets are given in Table 7 of the reference paper.
