High-energy sources before INTEGRAL. INTEGRAL reference catalog.


Abstract (from CDS):

We describe the INTEGRAL reference catalog which classifies previously known bright X-ray and gamma-ray sources before the launch of INTEGRAL. These sources are, or have been at least once, brighter than ∼1mCrab above 3keV, and are expected to be detected by INTEGRAL. This catalog is being used in the INTEGRAL Quick Look Analysis to discover new sources or significantly variable sources. We compiled several published X-ray and gamma-ray catalogs, and surveyed recent publications for new sources. Consequently, there are 1122 sources in our INTEGRAL reference catalog. In addition to the source positions, we show an approximate spectral model and expected flux for each source, based on which we derive expected INTEGRAL counting rates. Assuming the default instrument performances and at least ∼105s exposure time for any part of the sky, we expect that INTEGRAL will detect at least ∼700 sources below 10keV and ∼400 sources above 20keV over the mission life.
