Abstract

The QUIJOTE-MFI Northern Hemisphere Wide Survey has provided maps of the sky above declinations -30° at 11, 13, 17, and 19 GHz. These data are combined with ancillary data to produce Spectral Energy Distributions in intensity in the frequency range 0.4-3 000 GHz on a sample of 52 candidate compact sources harbouring anomalous microwave emission (AME). We apply a component separation analysis at 1° scale on the full sample from which we identify 44 sources with high AME significance. We explore correlations between different fitted parameters on this last sample. QUIJOTE-MFI data contribute to notably improve the characterization of the AME spectrum, and its separation from the other components. In particular, ignoring the 10-20 GHz data produces on average an underestimation of the AME amplitude, and an overestimation of the free-free component. We find an average AME peak frequency of 23.6 ± 3.6 GHz, about 4 GHz lower than the value reported in previous studies. The strongest correlation is found between the peak flux density of the thermal dust and of the AME component. A mild correlation is found between the AME emissivity (AAME250) and the interstellar radiation field. On the other hand no correlation is found between the AME emissivity and the free-free radiation Emission Measure. Our statistical results suggest that the interstellar radiation field could still be the main driver of the intensity of the AME as regards spinning dust excitation mechanisms. On the other hand, it is not clear whether spinning dust would be most likely associated with cold phases of the interstellar medium rather than with hot phases dominated by free-free radiation.
