Seminar
A new technique to constrain torus parameters using X-ray and mid-IR simultaneous fit

Dr. Donaji Esparza Arredondo

Abstract

In this talk, I present a new technique that explores the hypothesis that
the structure producing the continuum emission at mid-IR and the reflection
component at X-ray are the same. If this is the case, they can be used
together to better constrain the physical parameters of the torus. Our
technique consists on a simultaneous fitting of Spitzer and NuSTAR spectra
using mid-IR and X-ray models available. During this talk, I will also show
the first results obtained when applying our technique to the nearby type-2
active nucleus IC 5063. Finally, I will talk about the work that we are
currently developing using this technique.
