    • Kiloparsec-scale Jets: Physics, Emission Mechanisms, and Challenges 

      Perlman, Eric S.; Meyer, Eileen; Eilek, Jean; Tchekhovskoy, Sasha; Nyland, Kristina; Agudo, Ivan; Baum, Stefi; Hardcastle, Martin; Kadler, Matthias; Labiano, Alvaro; Marshall, Herman; O’Dea, Christopher; Worrall, Diana (2019-03-08)
      Jets are a ubiquitous part of the accretion process, created in AGN, by a coupling between the magnetic field near the central black hole and inflowing material. We point out what advances can be achieved by new technologies, ...

    • Prospects for AGN Studies at Hard X-ray through MeV Energies 

      Meyer, Eileen; Finke, Justin; Younes, George; D'Ammando, Filippo; Rani, Bindu; Buson, Sara; Wadiasingh, Zorowar; Agudo, Ivan; Beckmann, Volker; Longo, Francesco (2019-03-18)
      This White Paper explores advances in the study of Active Galaxies which will be enabled by new observing capabilities at MeV energies (hard X-rays to gamma-rays; 0.1-1000 MeV), with a focus on multi-wavelength synergies. ...

      MeV blazars are the most luminous persistent sources in the Universe and emit most of their energy in the MeV band. These objects display very large jet powers and accretion luminosities and are known to host black holes ...
