Overview

The stacked catalog, 3XMM-DR7s (referred to as xmmstack), has been compiled by the XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre (XMM-SSC) Consortium from overlapping observations by the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton Observatory with low background and full-frame readout of all EPIC cameras. The authors selected 1789 observations from the public observations, taken between 2000 February 3 and 2016 December 15, to generate the catalog 3XMM-DR7, and sorted into 434 stacks. The resulting catalog contains 71,951 unique sources derived from the observations (provided in this table) at the fitted position. More than 8,000 sources were new with respect to 3XMM-DR7.

The catalog provides positions and source parameters like fluxes in the XMM-Newton standard energy bands, hardness ratios, quality estimates, and information on inter-observation variability for the individual observations related to the stacked sources. The parameters are directly derived from the simultaneous fit.

The catalog of sources in overlapping observations is based on data used to compile 3XMM-DR7 and their selection criteria: per observation, each exposure by an EPIC instrument (see below) enters the catalog if it has a minimum net exposure time of 1 ks, after good-time interval filtering, and non-empty images in all five energy bands (given below). In addition, the following requirements were enforced in the source catalog: (1) all three EPIC instruments were active, (2) each EPIC instrument was operated in full-frame mode, (3) at least 99% of the chip area were usable, (4) the mean background level of each instrument lies below the threshold, and (5) the observation overlaps with another one by >20% in area (see the paper for more details). Sources with a minimum detection likelihood of 6 in the whole stack or at least one contributing observation are included in the stacked catalog.

The authors referred to the EPIC instruments with the following designations: PN, M1 (MOS1), and M2 (MOS2).

The authors also defined the following energy bands:

     1:  0.2-0.5 keV
     2:  0.5-1.0 keV
     3:  1.0-2.0 keV
     4:  2.0-4.5 keV
     5:  4.5-12.0 keV
All-EPIC values cover the energy range 0.2-12.0 keV.

Provenance

This database table was first released by the HEASARC in August 2018. It contains the observation data for 3XMM-DR7s catalog, which was released by ESA on 2018-July-25 and obtained from the XMM-Newton Survey Science Center Consortium at http://xmmssc.irap.omp.eu/Catalogue/3XMM-DR7s/3XMM_DR7stack.html. It is also available as a gzipped FITS file.

Parameters

SrcID
The unique identifier assigned to the source detection.

ObsID
The unique identifier of the XMM-Newton observation.

Name
The source designation in the style of the 3XMM IAU names. The name prefix ends with "s" to signify this is a stacked source.

RA
The Right Ascension in the specified equinox. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

Dec
The Declination of the source in the specified equinox. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

LII
Galactic Longitude. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

BII
Galactic Latitude. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

Error_Radius
Square root of the squared sum of the 1-sigma uncertainties in the Right Ascension and Declination, in arcseconds. The combined position error, ERROR_RADIUS, is calculated from the errors of the image coordinates: sqrt(X_PIXEL_ERROR2+Y_PIXEL_ERROR2). For symmetric errors in both dimensions, ERROR_RADIUS/sqrt(2) is the one-dimensional 1-sigma position uncertainty, giving the coordinate interval that includes 68% of normally distributed data points, and sqrt(2.3/2)*ERROR_RADIUS is the two-dimensional error, giving the radius of a circularized ellipse that include 68% of normally distributed data points.

X_Pixel
X coordinate within the rebinned image. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

X_Pixel_Error
1-sigma uncertainty in X coordinate within the rebinned image. The position error of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

Y_Pixel
Y coordinate within the rebinned image. The position of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

Y_Pixel_Error
1-sigma uncertainty in Y coordinate within the rebinned image. The position error of the source is the result of the simultaneous fit and considered to be the same for the stack (in xmmstack) and associated individual observations.

Dist_NN
The distance to the nearest neighboring detection, in arcseconds.

Name_3XMMDR7
The IAU source designation assigned to the nearest unique source in 3XMM-DR7.

Srcid_3XMMDR7
The unique source identifier of the nearest source in 3XMM-DR7 within the correlation radius. Two sources are associated if their separation is no larger than three times the sum of their position errors, which is assumed to be at least one arcsecond to account for systematic errors. The matching radius per source is therefore:

       rmatch = max (1", 3 x [ ERROR_RADIUS + ERROR_RADIUS_3XMMDR7 ])
  
"Null" refers to the case where no counterpart is found.

Detid_3XMMDR7
Detection identifier of the nearest unique 3XMM-DR7 source in OBSID. (DETID in 3XMM-DR7)

The position error of the 3XMM-DR7 source and its contributing detections including statistical and systematic errors from the field rectifications.
