Swift-XRT Survey of Fermi Unassociated Sources


These results are part of the Swift program to follow-up Fermi unassociated sources in an attempt to find X-ray counterparts to the unidentified gamma-ray sources. As new observations are performed, these pages will be updated in nearly real time. Please use these results as a guide and proceed with caution when using them in a publication since they are the result of an automated analysis.

When using these data and results in publications, please reference M.C. Stroh & A.D. Falcone 2013, ApJS, 207, 28; arXiv: 1305.4949 for a description of many of the analysis techniques used to reduce these data (note: a more detailed paper describing the complete data set and analysis is forthcoming). Please contact Abe Falcone and Michael Stroh at unassociated@swift.psu.edu if you have any questions about the program or the analysis, or to simply to let us know that you've made use of these data.


Caution: For completeness, sources are listed if the "detection" exceeds 3 sigma. The significances and images are shown so you can make more stringent significance cuts, if desired.
