Can X-Ray Observations Improve Optical-UV-based Accretion-rate Estimates for Quasars?

Article presents a study utilizing a carefully selected sample of 53 radio-quiet quasars that have Hβ and C iv λ1549 spectroscopy as well as Chandra coverage, to search for a robust accretion-rate indicator for quasars, particularly at the highest-accessible redshifts (z ∼ 6–7).
