X-rays from massive OB stars : thermal emission from radiative shocks
Chandra grating spectra of a sample of 15 massive OB stars were analysed under the basic assumption that the X-ray emission is produced in an ensemble of shocks formed in the winds driven by these
X-Ray Emission from Colliding Wind Shocks in the Wolf-Rayet Binary WR 140
We analyze four ASCA X-ray observations of the Wolf-Rayet binary system WR 140 obtained between 1993 and 1997 by making use of hydrodynamic colliding wind (CW) shock models. The analysis shows that
XMM‐Newton Detection of Hard X‐Ray Emission in the Nitrogen‐Type Wolf‐Rayet Star WR 110
We have used the excellent sensitivity of XMM-Newton to obtain the first high-quality X-ray spectrum of a Wolf-Rayet (W-R) star that is not known to be a member of a binary system. Our target, the
A Chandra View of the Morphological and Spectral Evolution of Supernova Remnant 1987A
We present an update on the results of our monitoring observations of the X-ray remnant of supernova (SN) 1987A with Chandra. As of 2002 December, we have performed a total of seven observations of
Chandra X-ray observations of the young stellar cluster NGC 6193 in the Ara OB1 association
A 90-ks Chandra High Energy Transmission Grating observation of the young stellar cluster NGC 6193 in the southern Ara OB1 association detected 43 X-ray sources in a 2 x 2 arcmin 2 core region
The X-Ray Spectrum of Supernova Remnant 1987A
We discuss the X-ray emission observed from supernova remnant 1987A with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. We analyze a high-resolution spectrum obtained in 1999 October with the high-energy
XMM-Newton and Very Large Array Observations of the Variable Wolf-Rayet Star EZ Canis Majoris: Evidence for a Close Companion?
We present new X-ray and radio observations of the Wolf-Rayet star EZ CMa (HD 50896) obtained with XMM-Newton and the Very Large Array (VLA). This WN4 star exhibits optical and UV variability at a
Chandra Observes the End of an Era in SN 1987A
Updated imaging and photometric results from Chandra observations of SN 1987A, covering the last 16 years, are presented. We find that the 0.5–2 keV light curve has remained constant at ~8 × 10−12
We summarize new X-ray detections of four nitrogen-type Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars obtained in a limited survey aimed at establishing the X-ray properties of WN stars across their full range of spectral
Simultaneous Radio and X‐Ray Observations of the Wolf‐Rayet Star WR 147
We present results of simultaneous ASCA/Very Large Array (VLA) observations of the Wolf-Rayet star WR 147 (AS 431). This WN 8 star is an optical double and may be a WR)OB colliding wind binary
