ALMA observations of A0620-00: fresh clues on the nature of quiescent black hole X-ray binary jets

Abstract:

We report on Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) continuum observations of the black hole X-ray binary A0620–00 at an X-ray luminosity nine orders of magnitude sub-Eddington. The system was significantly detected at 98 GHz (at 44 ± 7 μJy) and only marginally at 233 GHz (20 ± 8 μJy), about 40 d later. These results suggest either an optically thin sub-mm synchrotron spectrum, or highly variable sub-mm jet emission on month time-scales. Although the latter appears...
