Multi-wavelength emission from Jets of nearby radio galaxies
Date: Thursday, April 4th
Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: CH 5280
Speaker: Riku Kuze, Tohoku University
Abstract: Relativistic jets in radio galaxies emit multi-wavelength photons, indicating the existence of nonthermal particles. However, the origin of these nonthermal particles is unknown. One plausible scenario is the electron-positron pair production via the two-photon interaction using the gamma rays produced by magnetic reconnection in the black-hole magnetosphere. This scenario is possible if the accretion flow is in a highly magnetized state, i.e., magnetically arrested disk (MAD) state. We construct the multi-wavelength photon emission model based on this scenario. In this talk, we will show the results of applying our model to M87. We calculate emissions from jets and MADs and compare the model prediction to the simultaneous multi-wavelength observational data for M87. We find that the emission from jets explains the optical to the X-ray data, and that from MADs explains the gamma-ray data. We also estimate the neutrino emission from jets and MADs, and we find that the neutrino luminosity is too low to observe by the IceCube Gen-2.
