We show that the expansion of ejecta in Tycho's supernova remnant (SNR) is consistent with a spherically symmetric shell, based on Suzaku measurements of the Doppler broadened X-ray emission lines. All of the strong Kα line emissions show broader widths at the center than at the rim, while the centroid energies are constant across the remnant (except for Ca). This is the pattern expected for Doppler broadening due to expansion of the SNR ejecta in a spherical shell. To determine the expansion… 

Direct Ejecta Velocity Measurements of Tycho's Supernova Remnant

We present the first direct ejecta velocity measurements of Tycho’s supernova remnant (SNR). Chandra’s high angular resolution images reveal a patchy structure of radial velocities in the ejecta that

The Three-dimensional Expansion of the Ejecta from Tycho's Supernova Remnant

We present the first 3D measurements of the velocity of various ejecta knots in Tycho’s supernova remnant, known to result from a Type Ia explosion. Chandra X-ray observations over a 12 yr baseline

Asymmetric expansion of the Fe ejecta in Kepler’s supernova remnant

The ejecta kinematics of supernova remnants (SNRs) is one of crucial clues to understand the explosion mechanism of type Ia supernovae (SNe). In particular, the kinematic asymmetry of iron-peak

Spitzer images of Tycho's supernova remnant in the mid-infrared reveal limb-brightened emission from the entire periphery of the shell and faint filamentary structures in the interior. As with other

ASYMMETRIC EJECTA DISTRIBUTION IN SN 1006

We present the results from deep X-ray observations (∼400 ks in total) of SN 1006 with Suzaku. The thermal spectrum from the entire supernova remnant (SNR) exhibits prominent emission lines of O, Ne,

Balmer Filaments in Tycho’s Supernova Remnant: An Interplay between Cosmic-ray and Broad-neutral Precursors

We present Hα spectroscopic observations and detailed modeling of the Balmer filaments in the supernova remnant (SNR) Tycho (SN 1572). We used GHαFaS (Galaxy Hα Fabry–Pérot Spectrometer) on the

A CR-HYDRO-NEI MODEL OF THE STRUCTURE AND BROADBAND EMISSION FROM TYCHO'S SUPERNOVA REMNANT

Tycho's supernova remnant (SNR) is well-established as a source of particle acceleration to very high energies. Constraints from numerous studies indicate that the observed γ-ray emission results

Emission Measures and Emission-measure-weighted Temperatures of Shocked Interstellar Medium and Ejecta in Supernova Remnants

A goal of supernova remnant (SNR) evolution models is to relate fundamental parameters of a supernova (SN) explosion and progenitor star to the current state of its SNR. The SNR hot plasma is

EVIDENCE FOR PARTICLE ACCELERATION TO THE KNEE OF THE COSMIC RAY SPECTRUM IN TYCHO'S SUPERNOVA REMNANT

Supernova remnants (SNRs) have long been assumed to be the source of cosmic rays (CRs) up to the “knee” of the CR spectrum at 1015 eV, accelerating particles to relativistic energies in their blast
