Title: Traversing the Vicinity of Black Holes Using X-rays

Speaker: 姜嘉陈

Institute: Tsinghua University

Host: 武剑峰

Time: 14:30-16:30, Thursday, October, 14

Location: Physics Building 552 (online)


Abstract:

Black holes are the most extreme objects in the Universe. We cannot directly observe black holes as no light can escape from these light-gobbling monsters. But we can detect the radiation from gas and dust that is being drawn into the black holes through accretion. Unfortunately, due to their large distances, the vicinity of black holes cannot be directly imaged. Instead, we can study the accretion processes onto black holes using spectroscopy, time-series data and other astronomical disciplines. I will summarize recent X-ray observations of accreting black hole systems, including active galactic nuclei and X-ray binaries.
