A COORDINATED X-RAY AND OPTICAL CAMPAIGN OF THE NEAREST MASSIVE ECLIPSING BINARY, δ ORIONIS Aa. III. ANALYSIS OF OPTICAL PHOTOMETRIC (MOST) AND SPECTROSCOPIC (GROUND-BASED) VARIATIONS
We report on both high-precision photometry from the Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) space telescope and ground-based spectroscopy of the triple system δ Ori A, consisting of a
A combined HST and XMM-Newton campaign for the magnetic O9.7 V star HD 54879: towards constraining the weak-wind problem of massive stars
Context: HD 54879 (O9.7 V) is one of a dozen O-stars for which an organized atmospheric magnetic field has been detected. To gain insights into the interplay between atmospheres, winds, and magnetic
A COORDINATED X-RAY AND OPTICAL CAMPAIGN OF THE NEAREST MASSIVE ECLIPSING BINARY, δ ORIONIS Aa. I. OVERVIEW OF THE X-RAY SPECTRUM
We present an overview of four deep phase-constrained Chandra HETGS X-ray observations of δ Ori A. Delta Ori A is actually a triple system that includes the nearest massive eclipsing spectroscopic
A COORDINATED X-RAY AND OPTICAL CAMPAIGN OF THE NEAREST MASSIVE ECLIPSING BINARY, δ ORIONIS Aa. II. X-RAY VARIABILITY
We present time-resolved and phase-resolved variability studies of an extensive X-ray high-resolution spectral data set of the δ Ori Aa binary system. The four observations, obtained with Chandra
The Bubble Nebula NGC 7635 – testing the wind-blown bubble theory
This work is based on observations obtained with XMM-Newton, an ESA science mission with instruments and contributions directly funded by ESA Member States and NASA. The NOT data presented were
Measuring the stellar wind parameters in IGR J17544-2619 and Vela X-1 constrains the accretion physics in Supergiant Fast X-ray Transient and classical Supergiant X-ray Binaries
Classical Supergiant X-ray Binaries (SGXBs) and Supergiant Fast X-ray Transients (SFXTs) are two types of High-mass X-ray Binaries (HMXBs) that present similar donors but, at the same time, show very
On the binary nature of massive blue hypergiants: high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy suggests that Cyg OB2 12 is a colliding wind binary
The blue hypergiant Cyg OB2-12 (B3Ia+) is a representative member of the class of very massive stars in a poorly understood evolutionary stage. We obtained its high-resolution X-ray spectrum using
MONOS: Multiplicity Of Northern O-type Spectroscopic systems
Context. Multiplicity in massive stars is key to understanding the chemical and dynamical evolution of galaxies. Among massive stars, those of O type play a crucial role due to their high masses and
The shortest-period Wolf-Rayet binary in the Small Magellanic Cloud: Part of a high-order multiple system
Context. SMC AB 6 is the shortest-period (P = 6.5 d) Wolf-Rayet (WR) binary in the Small Magellanic Cloud. This binary is therefore a key system in the study of binary interaction and formation of WR
Probing Wolf-Rayet Winds: Chandra/HETG X-Ray Spectra of WR 6
With a deep Chandra/HETGS exposure of WR 6, we have resolved emission lines whose profiles show that the X-rays originate from a uniformly expanding spherical wind of high X-ray-continuum optical

Spectra disentangling applied to the Hyades binaryθ 2 Tau AB: new orbit, orbital parallax and component properties ⋆
Aims.θ 2 Tau is a detached and single-lined interferometric-spectr oscopic binary as well as the most massive binary system of the Hyades cluster. The system revolves in an eccentric orbit with a
Dynamical mass of the O-type supergiant in ζ Orionis A
• Physics
• 2013
Aims. A close companion ofζ Orionis A was found in 2000 with the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI), and shown to be a physical companion. Because the primary is a supergiant of type O, for
A new paradigm for the X-ray emission of O stars from XMM-Newton observations of the O9.7 supergiant zeta Orionis
XMM-Newton observations of the O supergiant zeta Orionis (O9.7 Ib) extend knowledge of its high-resolution spectrum beyond the CVI line at 33.7 Angstroms and suggest a new framework for the

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 now
Physical elements of the eclipsing binary δ Orionis

• 2010
For years, δ Orionis was considered a normal binary with an 09.5 II primary exhibiting apsidal-line advance. However, radial-velocity curves of both binary components have been derived from the IUE

• Physics
• 1979
The anomalously strong O VI and N V lines in O stars and the C IV lines in B supergiants may be due to Auger ionization by X-rays from a thin coronal zone at the base of the cool stellar winds. We
