Hot stars observed by XMM-Newton - I. The catalog and the properties of OB stars
Aims. Following the advent of increasingly sensitive X-ray observatories, deep observations of early-type stars became possible. However, the results for only a few objects or clusters have until nowExpand

The ATHENA X-ray Integral Field Unit (X-IFU)
The X-ray Integral Field Unit (X-IFU) is the high resolution X-ray spectrometer of the ESA Athena X-ray observatory. Over a field of view of 5’ equivalent diameter, it will deliver X-ray spectra fromExpand

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE CHANDRA CARINA COMPLEX PROJECT
The Great Nebula in Carina provides an exceptional view into the violent massive star formation and feedback that typifies giant H II regions and starburst galaxies. We have mapped the CarinaExpand

CARINA OB STARS: X-RAY SIGNATURES OF WIND SHOCKS AND MAGNETIC FIELDS
The Chandra Carina Complex contains 200 known O- and B-type stars. The Chandra survey detected 68 of the 70 O stars and 61 of 127 known B0-B3 stars. We have assembled a publicly availableExpand

A spectroscopic investigation of early-type stars in the young open cluster Westerlund 2
Context. The distance of the very young open cluster Westerlund 2, which contains the very massive binary system WR 20a and is likely associated with a TeV source, has been the subject of muchExpand

Chandra monitoring of the very massive binary WR20a and the young massive cluster Westerlund 2
Context. Westerlund 2 is a young, massive, obscured stellar cluster of our Galaxy. It harbors the most massive star with well determined parameters, WR20a (82+83M⊙), a dozen very early O-type starsExpand

Global X-ray Properties of the O and B Stars in Carina
The key empirical property of the X-ray emission from O stars is a strong correlation between the bolometric and X-ray luminosities. In the framework of the Chandra Carina Complex Project, 129 O andExpand

X-ray emission from magnetic massive stars
Magnetically confined winds of early-type stars are expected to be sources of bright and hard X-rays. To clarify the systematics of the observed X-ray properties, we have analyzed a large series ofExpand

Towards an understanding of the Of?p star HD 191612: optical spectroscopy
We present extensive optical spectroscopy of the early-type magnetic star HD 191612 (O6.5f ? pe-O8fp). The Balmer and He i lines show strongly variable emission which is highly reproducible on aExpand
