Comparison of radiative electron energy-loss rates. Here we choose BLR1 at z = 100 as an example, while noting that the qualitative picture, with the negligible BLR losses, is the same in all the cases we considered in our study. We compare with synchrotron loss rates for a B = 4.5 G magnetic field. a) Radiative electron energy loss rates for varying z for electron energy γ = 500 and BLR1 with τBLR = 0.01. b) Radiative electron energy loss rates for varying γ at z = 100 and BLR1 with τBLR = 0.01. BLR shows the BLR energy loss used in our calculations, here we set the energy loss in the Klein-Nishina regime to 0.
