We present a detailed study of the galaxy cluster Abell 795 and of its central Fanaroff-Riley Type 0 (FR0) radio galaxy. From an archival Chandra observation, we found a dynamically disturbed environment with evidences for sloshing of the intracluster medium. We argue that the environment alone cannot explain the compactness of the radio galaxy, as similar conditions are also found around extended sources. We identified a pair of putative X-ray cavities in the proximity of the center: These could have been created in a past outburst of the FR0, and dragged away by the large-scale gas movement. The presence of X-ray cavities associated with a FR0 could open a new window on the study of jet power and feedback properties of this recently discovered class of compact radio galaxies.

Abstract

We present a detailed study of the galaxy cluster Abell 795 and of its central Fanaroff-Riley Type 0 (FR0) radio galaxy. From an archival Chandra observation, we found a dynamically disturbed environment with evidences for sloshing of the intracluster medium. We argue that the environment alone cannot explain the compactness of the radio galaxy, as similar conditions are also found around extended sources. We identified a pair of putative X-ray cavities in the proximity of the center: These could have been created in a past outburst of the FR0, and dragged away by the large-scale gas movement. The presence of X-ray cavities associated with a FR0 could open a new window on the study of jet power and feedback properties of this recently discovered class of compact radio galaxies.
