Abstract

The authors present the results of X-ray and millimetre monitoring of the blazar 3C 273 at 1-2 day intervals over the period 12 December 1992 to 24 January 1993. No large flares are seen in this period but variations in both wavebands of ≡30% on few day timescales are apparent. The ROSAT PSPC X-ray spectrum consists of 2 power-law components with the harder component dominating above 0.5 keV. There is very little correlation between the variability of the soft and hard components. The results show that the hard X-ray component cannot be a simple extrapolation of the millimetre/IR synchrotron component but may be explained as a self-Compton component in a shocked jet.
