New Paper: Effects of X-rays on BH Formation

On Wednesday, we submitted a new paper (arXiv), led by John Regan at Durham University, focusing on the formation of a massive black hole at very high redshifts, which are potential seeds for supermassive BHs observed at redshift 6 that have masses around 1 billion solar masses. Here we utilized radiation hydrodynamics simulations that investigated the “close pair” scenario, where a nearby galaxy irradiates a protogalactic gas cloud, preventing it from fragmenting and forming stars.
