### An Infrared Imaging Survey of the Faint Chandra Sources near the Galactic Centre

Abstract:

We present near-IR imaging of a sample of the faint, hard X-ray sources discovered in the 2001 Chandra ACIS-I survey towards the Galactic Centre (GC) (Wang et al. 2002). These ~800 discrete sources represent an important and previously undetected population within the Galaxy. From our VLT observations of 77 X-ray sources, we identify candidate K-band counterparts to 75% of the Chandra sources in our sample. The near-IR magnitudes and colours of the majority of candidate counterparts are consi...
