    • Detection of non-thermal X-ray emission in the lobes and jets of Cygnus A 

      Vries, M. N. de; Wise, M. W.; Huppenkothen, D.; Nulsen, P. E. J.; Snios, B.; Hardcastle, M. J.; Birkinshaw, M.; Worrall, D. M.; Duffy, R. T.; McNamara, B. R. (2018-08-21)
      We present a spectral analysis of the lobes and X-ray jets of Cygnus A, using more than 2 Ms of $\textit{Chandra}$ observations. The X-ray jets are misaligned with the radio jets and significantly wider. We detect non-thermal ...
    • The X-ray Ribs Within the Cocoon Shock of Cygnus A 

      Duffy, R. T.; Worrall, D. M.; Birkinshaw, M.; Nulsen, P. E. J.; Wise, M. W.; Vries, M. N. de; Snios, B.; Mathews, W. G.; Perley, R. A.; Hardcastle, M. J.; Rafferty, D. A.; McNamara, B. R.; Edge, A. C.; McKean, J. P.; Carilli, C. L.; Croston, J. H.; Godfrey, L. E. H.; Laing, R. A. (2018-06-01)
      We use new and archival Chandra observations of Cygnus A, totalling ~1.9Ms, to investigate the distribution and temperature structure of gas lying within the projected extent of the cocoon shock and exhibiting a rib-like ...
