Finding persistent sources with the BeppoSAX/Wide Field Camera: an in-depth analysis.


Abstract (from CDS):

During the operational life of the Italian/Dutch X-ray satellite (1996-2002), BeppoSAX, its two Wide Field Cameras (WFCs) performed observations that covered the full sky at different epochs. Although the majority of analysis performed on BeppoSAX WFC data concentrated on the detection of transient sources, we have now applied the same techniques developed for the INTEGRAL/IBIS survey to produce the same work with the BeppoSAX WFC data. This work represents the first unbiased source list compilation produced from the overall WFC data set optimized for faint persistent source detection. This approach recovered 182 more sources compared to the previous WFC catalog reported in Verrecchia et al. The catalog contains 404 sources detected between 3 and 17 keV, 10 of which are yet to be seen by the new generation of telescopes.
