Abstract

In order to investigate the structure and mechanism of active galactic nuclei through X-ray observation, detailed energy spectra are examined with the gas scintillation proportional counters on board TENMA. For three selected objects, PKS 2155-304, Centaurus A and IC 4329 A, the observational results in the intensity variation, the spectral shapes and the iron line features are presented.
