Determining the nature of the faint X-ray source population near the galactic centre

Abstract:

We present results of a multi-wavelength program to study the faint discrete X-ray source population discovered by Chandra in the Galactic Centre (GC). From IR imaging obtained with the VLT we identify candidate K-band counterparts to 75% of the X-ray sources in our sample. By combining follow-up VLT K-band spectroscopy of a subset of these candidate counterparts with the magnitude limits of our photometric survey, we suggest that only a small percentage of the sources are HMXBs, while the ma...
