ROSAT All-Sky Survey observations of IRAS galaxies. I. Soft X-ray and far-infrared properties.


Abstract (from CDS):

The 120 000 X-ray sources detected in the RASS II processing of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey are correlated with the 14 315 IRAS galaxies selected from the IRAS Point Source Catalogue: 372 IRAS galaxies show X-ray emission within a distance of 100 arcsec from the infrared position. By inspecting the structure of the X-ray emission in overlays on optical images we quantify the likelihood that the X-rays originate from the IRAS galaxy. For 197 objects the soft X-ray emission is very likely associated with the IRAS galaxy. Their soft X-ray properties are determined and compared with their far-infrared emission. X-ray contour plots overlaid on Palomar Digitized Sky Survey images are given for each of the 372 potential identifications. All images and tables displayed here are also available in electronic form.
