A late jet rebrightening revealed from multiwavelength monitoring of the black hole candidate XTE J1752-223

Abstract:

We present optical monitoring of the black hole candidate XTE J1752-223 during its 2009-10 outburst and decay to quiescence. The optical light curve can be described by an exponential decay followed by a plateau, then a more rapid fade towards quiescence. The plateau appears to be due to an extra component of optical emission that brightens and then fades over ∼40days. We show evidence for the origin of this optical 'flare' to be the synchrotron jet during the decaying hard state, and we iden...
