    Abstract

    Accreting black holes and neutron stars release an unknown fraction of the infalling particles and energy in the form of collimated jets. The jets themselves are radiatively inefficient, but their power can be constrained by observing their interaction with the surrounding environment. Here we present observations of X-ray binary jet-ISM interactions which produce optical line emission, using the ESO/MPI 2.2 m and Isaac Newton Telescopes. We constrain the time-averaged power of the Cyg X-1 jet-powered nebula, and present a number of new candidate nebulae discovered. Comparisons are made to the large scale lobes of extragalactic AGN.We also speculate that some emission line emitters close to X-ray binaries in M31 are likely to be microquasar jet-powered nebulae.
