Presentation #100.46 in the session AGN.
HEX-P is a probe-class mission concept that will combine high spatial resolution X-ray imaging (<10 arcsec FWHM) and broad spectral coverage (0.1-150 keV) with an effective area far superior to current facilities (including XMM-Newton and NuSTAR), to enable revolutionary new insights into a variety of important astrophysical problems. The unprecedented observational capability of HEX-P will enable us to study the most extreme jets in the Universe powered by supermassive black holes. The instrument’s superior angular resolution will enable us to image jet structures, and its excellent sensitivity will uncover the bulk of their population in the early universe. Acceleration and radiative processes responsible for the majority of their X-ray emission will be pinned down by HEX-P excellent timing capabilities. For the first time, truly simultaneous soft- to hard X-ray coverage will enable us to study in detail the particle population responsible for these jets high-energy radiation. All in all, HEX-P is the ideal mission to unravel the science behind the most powerful jets in the universe, and the simulations presented here demonstrate so.
