Description

We present Chandra X-ray imaging of a flux-limited sample of flat spectrum radio-emitting quasars with jet-like structure. X-rays are detected from 59% of 56 jets. No counter-jets were detected. The core spectra are fitted by power-law spectra with a photon index Γx, whose distribution is consistent with a normal distribution, with a mean of 1.61+0.04 -0.05 and dispersion of 0.15+0.04 -0.03. We show that the distribution of α rx, the spectral index between the X-ray and radio band jet fluxes,...[Show more]
