In science:

Radio emission has also been shown to be correlated with soft and hard X-ray emission (Hannikainen et al. 1998; Brocksopp et al. 1999; Corbel et al. 2000).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
Recent observations of X-ray novae have shown that the compact jet was an ubiquitous property of BHCs in the low/hard state (Fender 2001a; Corbel et al. 2001a and references therein).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
The compact jet seems to be quenched in the Intermediate/Very High states, i.e. in any state where a strong soft X-ray component exists (Corbel et al. 2001a).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
Hannikainen et al. (1998) first pointed out that the radio and X-ray emission in GX 339−4 were strongly correlated during the low/hard state, a correlation which has been studied in more details by Corbel et al. (2000) using a longer extensive set of data.
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
The typical spectral index of the inverted spectral component in the radio regime has been found to be around +0.15 during the most sensitive radio observations performed in the low/hard state (Corbel et al. 2000).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
Based on this RXTE spectrum and on the radio - X ray correlation (Corbel et al.
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
The base of the jet is probably located very close to, or co-existent with, the corona (Fender et al. 1999), which would explain why there is a very strong coupling between the hard X-ray emission from the corona and the radio emission from the compact jet (Hannikainen et al. 1998; Corbel et al. 2000).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
The square symbols is the level of radio emission at 8640 MHz estimated from the measured X-ray fluxes based on the existing correlation between radio and X-ray emission (Corbel et al. 2002).
Near-infrared synchrotron emission from the compact jet of GX339-4
Corbel et al (2002) demonstrated that in microquasars we can study in real time the formation and dynamical evolution of the working surfaces (lobes) of relativistic jets far away from the centres of ejection, on time scales inaccessible for AGN.
Microquasars as sources of high energy phenomena
BHXBs come from the stability in the orientation of the electric vector in the radio polarisation maps of GX 339−4 over a two year period (Corbel et al. 2000).

Does Sgr A* Have an Intrinsic Magnetic Moment Instead of an Event Horizon?
Although the - also non-thermal - hard X-ray emission in XRBs is generally attributed to the corona, in some microquasars a correlation between radio and X-rays is observed during the low-hard state (Corbel et al. 2003, Gallo et al. 2003).
