We present the result of multi-wavelength observations of the microquasar GRS 1915+105 in a plateau state with a luminosity of erg s-1 (~40% ), conducted simultaneously with the INTEGRAL and RXTE satellites, the ESO/NTT, the Ryle Telescope, the NRAO VLA and VLBA, in 2003 April 2–3. For the first time were observed concurrently in GRS 1915+105 all of the following properties: a strong steady optically thick radio emission corresponding to a powerful compact jet resolved with the VLBA, bright near-IR emission, a strong QPO at 2.5 Hz in the X-rays and a power law dominated spectrum without any cutoff in the 3–400 keV range.
Key words: stars: individual: GRS 1915+105 / X-rays: binaries / gamma rays: observations / ISM: jets and outflows
Based on observations with INTEGRAL, an ESA project with instruments and science data centre funded by ESA member states (especially the PI countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain), Czech Republic and Poland, and with the participation of Russia and the USA.
