Clusters of galaxies are the most massive gravitationally-bound objects in the Universe and are still forming. They are thus important probes of cosmological parameters and a host of astrophysical processes. Knowledge of the dynamics of the pervasive hot gas, which dominates in mass over stars in a cluster, is a crucial missing ingredient. Read More

The joint JAXA/NASA ASTRO-H mission is the sixth in a series of highly successful X-ray missions developed by the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS), with a planned launch in 2015. The ASTRO-H mission is equipped with a suite of sensitive instruments with the highest energy resolution ever achieved at E > 3 keV and a wide energy range spanning four decades in energy from soft X-rays to gamma-rays. The simultaneous broad band pass, coupled with the high spectral resolution of Delta E < 7 eV of the micro-calorimeter, will enable a wide variety of important science themes to be pursued.

The joint JAXA/NASA ASTRO-H mission is the sixth in a series of highly successful X-ray missions initiated by the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS). ASTRO-H will investigate the physics of the high-energy universe via a suite of four instruments, covering a very wide energy range, from 0.3 keV to 600 keV. Read More

We combine data from two all-sky surveys in order to study the connection between the infrared and hard X-ray (>10keV) properties for local active galactic nuclei (AGN). The Swift/Burst Alert Telescope all-sky survey provides an unbiased, flux-limited selection of hard X-ray detected AGN. Cross-correlating the 22-month hard X-ray survey with the AKARI all-sky survey, we studied 158 AGN detected by the AKARI instruments. Read More

We present the result of a systematic study of pileup phenomena seen in the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer, an X-ray CCD instrument, onboard the Suzaku observatory. Using a data set of observed sources in a wide range of brightness and spectral hardness, we characterized the pileup fraction, spectral hardening, and grade migration as a function of observed count rate in a frame per pixel. Using the pileup fraction as a measure of the degree of pileup, we found that the relative spectral hardening (the hardness ratio normalized to the intrinsic spectral hardness), branching ratio of split events, and that of detached events increase monotonically as the pileup fraction increases, despite the variety of brightness and hardness of the sample sources. Read More

A systematic study of the synchrotron X-ray emission from supernova remnants (SNRs) has been conducted. We selected a total of 12 SNRs whose synchrotron X-ray spectral parameters are available in the literature with reasonable accuracy, and studied how their luminosities change as a function of radius. It is found that the synchrotron X-ray luminosity tends to drop especially when the SNRs become larger than ~5 pc, despite large scatter. Read More

A deep X-ray observation of the unidentified very high energy (VHE) gamma-ray source HESS J1702-420, for the first time, was carried out by Suzaku. No bright sources were detected in the XIS field of view (FOV) except for two faint point-like sources. The two sources, however, are considered not to be related to HESS J1702-420, because their fluxes in the 2-10 keV band (~ 10^-14 erg s^-1 cm^-2) are ~ 3 orders of magnitude smaller than the VHE gamma-ray flux in the 1-10 TeV band (F_{TeV} = 3.

During the search for counterparts of very-high-energy gamma-ray sources, we serendipitously discovered large, extended, low surface brightness emission from PWNe around pulsars with the ages up to ~100 kyrs, a discovery made possible by the low and stable background of the Suzaku X-ray satellite. A systematic study of a sample of 8 of these PWNe, together with Chandra datasets, has revealed us that the nebulae keep expanding up to for ~100 kyrs, although time scale of the synchrotron X-ray emission is only ~60 yr for typical magnetic fields of 100 microG. Our result suggests that the accelerated electrons up to ~80 TeV can escape from the PWNe without losing most energies. Read More

Pulsar systems are very good experimental laboratories for the fundamental physics in extreme environments which cannot be achieved on ground. For example, the systems are under conditions of high magnetic field strength, large gravitational potential, and fast rotation, containing highly-ionized hot plasmas with particle acceleration etc. We can test phenomena related to these extreme condition in the X-ray to sub-MeV bands.

The Suzaku observation of LMC X-3 gives the best data to date on the shape of the accretion disk spectrum. This is due to the combination of very low absorbing column density along this line of sight which allows the shape of the disk emisison to be constrained at low energies by the CCD's, while the tail can be simultaneously determined up to 30 keV by the high energy detectors. These data clearly demonstrate that the observed disk spectrum is broader than a simple 'sum of blackbodies', and relativistic smearing of the emission is strongly required. Read More

Suzaku observed the region including HESS J1809-193, one of the TeV unidentified (unID) sources, and confirmed existence of the extended hard X-ray emission previously reported by ASCA, as well as hard X-ray emission from the pulsar PSR J1809-1917 in the region. One-dimensional profile of the diffuse emission is represented with a Gaussian model with the best-fit sigma of 7+-1 arcmin. The diffuse emission extends for at least 21 pc (at the 3sigma level, assuming the distance of 3. Read More

We present the ASCA and Suzaku studies of the TeV source HESS J1837--069, which has not been identified in other wave-lengths. We confirm the presence of two X-ray sources in the Suzaku XIS image, AX J1838.0--0655 and AX J1837. Read More

The charge transfer inefficiency (CTI) of the X-ray CCDs on board the Suzaku satellite (X-ray Imaging Spectrometers; XIS) has increased since the launch due to radiation damage, and the energy resolution has been degraded. To improve the CTI, we have applied a spaced-row charge injection (SCI) technique to the XIS in orbit; by injecting charges into CCD rows periodically, the CTI is actively decreased. The CTI in the SCI mode depends on the distance between a signal charge and a preceding injected row, and the pulse height shows periodic positional variations. Read More

The X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) on board the Suzaku satellite is an X-ray CCD camera system that has superior performance such as a low background, high quantum efficiency, and good energy resolution in the 0.2-12 keV band. Because of the radiation damage in orbit, however, the charge transfer inefficiency (CTI) has increased, and hence the energy scale and resolution of the XIS has been degraded since the launch of July 2005.

We have analyzed 200 Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer observations of the black hole candidate GX 339--4, all from the bright hard state periods between 1996 and 2005. Purpose of our study is to investigate the radiation mechanisms in the hard state of GX 339--4. The broadband 3--200 keV spectra were successfully modeled by a simple analytic model, power--law with an exponential cut-off modified with a smeared edge. Read More

One of the advantages of the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) system on board Suzaku is its low and stable non-X-ray background (NXB). In order to make the best use of this advantage, modeling the NXB spectra with high accuracy is important to subtract them from the spectra of on-source observations. We construct an NXB database by collecting XIS events when the dark Earth covers the XIS FOV. Read More

The black-hole binary Cygnus X-1 was observed for 17 ks with the Suzaku X-ray observatory in 2005 October, while it was in a low/hard state with a 0.7-300 keV luminosity of 4.6 x 10^37 erg/s. Read More

The hard X-ray detector (HXD) on board the X-ray satellite Suzaku is designed to have a good timing capability with a 61 $\mu$s time resolution. In addition to detailed descriptions of the HXD timing system, results of in-orbit timing calibration and performance of the HXD are summarized. The relative accuracy of time measurements of the HXD event was confirmed to have an accuracy of $1. Read More

We present an analysis of the X-ray data of a magnetic cataclysmic variable, BG CMi, obtained with ROSAT in March 1992 and with ASCA in April 1996. We show that four peaks clearly exist in the X-ray pulse profile, unlike a single peak found in the optical profile. The fluxes of two major pulses are $\sim 2 - 5$ times larger than those of two minor pulses. Read More

We have analyzed the 171 RXTE data sets of the black hole candidate GX 339-4 in the low/hard state during its 1996--2005 outburst. All the broadband spectra were successfully modeled by a simple analytic model, power-law with an exponential cutoff. The obtained energy cutoff($E_{\rm{cut}}$) is distributed over 50--300 keV, and the photon index over 1. Read More

We present the results of six Suzaku observations of the recurrent black hole transient 4U1630-472 during its decline from outburst from February 8 to March 23 in 2006. All observations show the typical high/soft state spectral shape in the 2-50keV band, roughly described by an optically thick disk spectrum in the soft energy band plus a weak power-law tail that becomes dominant only above \~20keV. The disk temperature decreases from 1. Read More

We present the results of analyzing the XMM-Newton data obtained in 2001 November 7 - 8. A flare is observed simultaneously in X-ray and UV together with a quiescence. We find that during the flare event X-ray flux varies with UV with no significant time lag, indicating a close correlation of flux variation for X-ray and UV flares. Read More

We have studied the origin of the broad and skewed feature at 4.5-7.5 keV in the energy spectra of NGC4151 using the ASCA and RXTE data. Read More

We have studied the long-term X-ray light curve (2$-$10 keV) of the luminous Seyfert 1 galaxy MCG-2-58-22 by compiling data, from various X-ray satellites, which together cover more than 20 years. We have found two distinct types of time variations in the light curve. One is a gradual and secular decrease of the X-ray flux, and the other is the episodic increase of X-ray flux (or flare) by a factor of 2$-$4 compared with the level expected from the secular variation.

We have observed the millisecond X-ray pulsar SAX J1808.4-3658 on three occasions during its 2000 outburst with the BeppoSAX satellite. The source was highly variable and erratic during this outburst, and by coincidence we obtained data only during times when the source had very low luminosities. Read More

We have analysed archived Ginga data on the Z source Sco X-2 (GX349+2). We present the first detailed investigation of its X-ray fast-time variability, as a function of position in the Z track. During the two-day observation over the period 5-7 March 1989, the source was in the so-called flaring branch, and the lower part of the so-called normal branch. Read More

The accretion-powered millisecond X-ray pulsar, SAX J1808.4-3658, was observed in quiescence with ASCA in September 1999. We detected a dim X-ray source in the SIS data at the position consistent to SAX J1808. Read More

We present results from analysis of the X-ray archive data of MCG-2-58-22, acquired with ROSAT from 1991 to 1993 and with ASCA from 1993 to 1997. By analyzing light curves, we find that MCG-2-58-22 shows a clear time variability in X-ray flux. The time scales of the variations range widely from about 1000 s to more than years. Read More

We have discovered errors in the calculation of some of the Einstein coefficients in Table 5 and some plots in Figure 3. Due to the errors, the square-root section of the curves of growth of Fe xxvi Ka and Kb, and Ni xxviii Ka in Figure 3 were a few times underestimated. We correct Table 5 and re-plot Figure 3 together with the unaffected curves. Read More

The X-ray binary pulsar GX 1+4 was observed with Ginga every year from 1987 to 1991, and with ASCA in 1994. During the Ginga observations, GX 1+4 was in the steady spindown phase, while the X-ray flux was not steady. The X-ray luminosity decreased down to L = 2. Read More

By comparing positions on a spectral color-color diagram from 10 black hole candidates (BHCs) observed with Ginga (1354-64, 1826-24, 1630-47, LMC X-1, LMC X-3, GS 2000+25, GS 2023+33, GS 1124-68, Cyg X-1, and GX 339-4) with the observed broad-band noise (0.001-64 Hz; BBN) and quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO) variability, we find that the so-called ``Very High State'' is spectrally intermediate to the Soft/High-State and Hard/Low-State. We find a transition point in spectral hardness where the dependence of the BHC QPO centroid frequency (of GS 1124-68 and GX 339-4) on spectral hardness switches from a correlation to an anti-correlation; where the BBN variability switches from High-State to Low-State; and where the spectral hardness of the QPO relative to that of the BBN variability is a maximum.
