Fig. 1


The broadband cosmic XRB spectrum. The thick, solid, dark blue curve and the thin, solid, black curve show the total AGN spectrum and the contribution of Compton-thick (mildly+heavily) AGNs in the GCH07 model, respectively. The thick, dashed, dark blue curve and the thin, dashed, black curve are as above, but assume a 4 times larger abundance of heavily Compton-thick AGNs. The XRB measurements from various mission/instrument combinations are marked by different symbols as labeled. Labels on the left (right) generally refer to measurements at E< 10 (>10) keV. The relevant references are as follows. ASCA GIS: Kushino et al. (2002); ASCA SIS: Gendreau et al. (1995); ROSAT: Georgantopoulos et al. (1996); BeppoSAX/MECS: Vecchi et al.
