The structure of X-ray jet of 3C 273

A. V. Bogdan, V. V. Marchenko, B. I. Hnatyk

Abstract


The X-ray internal structure of extragalactic jets is analyzed. The Lucy-Richardson deconvolution algorithm is usedto restore the image of X-ray sources. The analysis was done for Chandra observations of core-dominated quasar 3C273. The transverse profiles are built for the jet knots.

Keywords


quasars; jets; X-ray emission.
