[110.05] Quenched Radio Emission in Cygnus X-3

E. B. Waltman (NRL), F. D. Ghigo (NRAO)

Monitoring of X-ray binaries at 2.25 and 8.3 GHz with the Green Bank Interferometer has recorded quenched radio emission during active periods in Cygnus X-3 on a timescale of days to weeks prior to major flares. This is too long to be explained as self-absorption in the expanding synchrotron model, but may be attributed to instabilities in the environment of jet formation during periods of enhanced accretion.
