We will present results from two recent imaging campaigns on the jet of 3C273. We have obtained UV data at 180nm with ACS/SBC, which probe the possible connection between the jet's UV and X-ray emission. Chandra was used to monitor 3C273's jet over Cycle 5 to detect possible variability that would indicate synchrotron emission, at the same time tripling the number of detected X-ray photons, which allows for more precise determination of the X-ray spectral evolution along the jet.

Work at Fermilab was supported by the US Department of Energy under contract No. DE-AC02-76CH03000, and by NASA contract NAS8-03060. Work at MIT was supported under SAO contract SV3-73016 for the Chandra X-ray Center, operated by SAO under NASA contract NAS8-03060. Work at SAO was supported by NASA contract NAS8-03060.
