We present a detailed study of the x-ray, optical, and radio emission from the jet, lobes, and core of the quasar PKS 2101-490 as revealed by new Chandra, Hubble Space Telescope (HST), and ATCA images. We extract the radio to x-ray spectral energy distributions from seven regions of the 13″ jet, and model the jet x-ray emission in terms of Doppler beamed inverse Compton scattering of the cosmic microwave background (IC/CMB) for a jet in a state of equipartition between particle and magnetic...[Show more]
