[14.07] An INTEGRAL Archival Search for Microquasar Candidates

L. M. Walker, K. L. Larson, L. M. Boone (The College of Wooster)

We present the status of an ongoing effort to complete a systematic search of the INTEGRAL archive for possible microquasar candidates. Source screening follows the methodology of Motch et al.\ (1998), but employs current versions of the NRAO/VLA and X--ray catalogs for positional cross--correlation studies. Candidate source fluxes are evaluated with respect to the sensitivities of the the instruments on board the INTEGRAL satellite, and a preliminary analysis of ISGRI and JEM--X data for appropriate candidate sources is presented. This work was funded in part by The College of Wooster's NSF supported REU program (DMR-0243811).
