Flux Monitoring of Intraday Variable Sources with KVN Yonsei Radio Telescope

  • Published : 2010.04.15


We present the results of flux monitoring of BL Lac object 0716+71 and 0954+65 at 22GHz and 43GHz. Both of the flat spectrum radio sources are known as Intraday variables (IDVs) which are characterized by fast flux variation on time scales of a day or less. In general, the IDV phenomenon is interpreted as the effect of refractive scintillation in the interstellar medium or the evidence of source intrinsic flux variation. The observations were made simultaneously at 22GHz and 43GHz with KVN Yonsei 21m radio telescope.
