XJET: X-RAY EMISSION FROM EXTRAGALACTIC RADIO JETS

3C 295: False color Chandra overlayed with radio contours 3C 273: HST, Chandra, and Merlin (Marshall et al.)


MOTIVATION

This website is meant to serve as a clearing house for radio galaxies and quasars for which X-ray emission has been detected which is associated with radio jets, i.e. knots and hotspots. As resources permit, we will also provide downloadable fits images for public use. If you would like to donate a fits image, have a new example to add to the list, or find erroneous or incomplete information, please email D. Harris
