RASSOB - ROSAT All-Sky Survey: OB Stars
For detailed statistical analysis of the X-ray emission of hot stars, stars of
spectral type O and B listed in the Yale Bright Star Catalogue were selected
and searched for in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. This database table displays a
compilation of the derived X-ray data for a complete sample of bright OB stars.

Mean PSPC count rate in ct/s.
Error of PSPC count rate in ct/s.
The hardness ratio, defined according to the following:
HD_Ratio = (H-S)/(H+S).
H = 0.5 - 2.9 keV Band Flux
S = 0.1 - 0.4 keV Band Flux
Error of HD_Ratio.
[1+-]Note on hardness ratio.
-: up. limit
+: low. limit
1: only S band
Estimated X-ray temperature in keV.
The logarithm of the apparent X-ray flux in units mW/m^2.
Error in log_x_flux in mW/m^2.
The logarithm of the X-ray luminosity in units of 10^-7 W.
The logarithm of the luminosity ratio: log(Lx/Lbol).
BROWSE classification type. The classification is based on the
'Spect_Type' parameter, if one is available.
