    • Abstract


      The most identified sources observed by Fermi are blazars (Flat Spectrum Radio Quasars (FSRQs) and BL Lacertae objects (BLs). In this paper, we obtained 124 𝛾-ray loud blazars with available 𝛾-ray and radio (core and total) data. It is interesting that the 𝛾-ray luminosity have a good correlation with the radio luminosity. This phenomenon exists in the core radio luminosity (𝐿c) and total radio luminosity (𝐿t). The correlation between the 𝛾-ray and the radio luminosities is still stronger even after we eliminated the redshift effect, which suggests that the 𝛾-ray radiations in the 𝛾-ray loud blazars are strongly beamed.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
