    • Abstract


      Four well-sampled Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs) of PMN J0948+0022 are fitted with the syn+SSC+EC model to derive the physical parameters of its jets and to investigate the spectral variations of its SEDs. A tentative correlation between the peak luminosity (𝐿c) and peak frequency (𝑣c) of its inverse Compton (IC) bump is found in both the observer and co-moving frames, indicating that the variations of luminosity are accompanied by the spectral shift. A correlation between 𝐿cs and 𝛿 is found, and thus the magnification of external photon field by the bulk motion of the radiation regions is an essential reason for the spectral variation since, IC bump of PMN J0948+0022 is dominated by the EC process.

      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.
