We report the results of our study of magnetic fields in a sample of 15 Be stars using spectropolarimetric data obtained at the European Southern Observatory with the multi-mode instrument FORS 1 installed at the 8m Kueyen telescope. We detect weak photospheric magnetic fields in four stars, HD56014, HD148184, HD155806, and HD181615. We note that for HD181615 the evolutionary status is not obvious due to the fact that it is a binary system currently observed in the initial rapid phase of mass…

On the incidence of magnetic fields in slowly pulsating B, β Cephei and B-type emission-line stars

We have obtained 40 high-resolution circular spectropolarimetric measurements of 12 slowly pulsating B (SPB) stars, eight β Cephei stars and two Be stars with the Echelle Spectropolarimetric Device

The MiMeS survey of Magnetism in Massive Stars : magnetic analysis of the O-type stars

We present the analysis performed on spectropolarimetric data of 97 O-type targets included in the framework of the Magnetism in Massive Stars (MiMeS) Survey. Mean least-squares deconvolved Stokes I

B stars seen at high resolution by XMM-Newton

We report on the properties of 11 early B stars observed with gratings on board XMM-Newton and Chandra, thereby doubling the number of B stars analysed at high resolution. The spectra typically

Hot and cool: two emission-line stars with constrasting behaviours in the same XMM-Newton field

High-energy emissions are good indicators of peculiar behaviours in stars. We have therefore obtained an XMM-Newton observation of HD 155806 and 1RXS J171502.4-333344, and derived their spectral

Analysis of the X-ray emission of OB stars: O stars

We investigate the global properties of X-ray emission from O stars, analyzing the X-ray spectra of 32 O stars from archival data of the XMM-Newton space observatory. We examine two hypotheses about

Magnetic fields of massive stars

Abstract We recently carried out a spectropolarimetric study of a sample of massive O-type stars and pulsating β Cephei stars using the SOFIN echelle spectrograph at the 2.56 m Nordic Optical

A compact pulsar wind nebula model of the γ-ray-loud binary LS I +61○303

We study a model of LS I +61°303 in which its radio to TeV emission is due to interaction of a relativistic wind from a young pulsar with the wind from its companion Be star. The detailed structure

Rapidly rotating B stars with viscous Keplerian decretion disks

In the past decade, a consensus has emerged regarding the nature of clas- sical Be stars: They are very rapidly rotating main sequence B stars, which, through a still unknown, but increasingly

Be Stars: Rapidly Rotating Pulsators

I will show that Be stars are, without exception, a class of rapidly rotating stars, which are in the majority of cases pulsating stars as well, while none of them does possess a large scale (i.e.

Magnetic fields in Herbig Ae stars

Abstract We present and discuss the results of a comprehensive analysis of magnetic field measurements for a group of seven young Herbig Ae/Be stars obtained using low-resolution spectropolarimetry

The magnetic field in the photospheric and circumstellar components of Herbig Ae stars

Aims.We investigate the photospheric and circumstellar (CS) magnetic field components separately in seven Herbig Ae stars. Methods: The study is based on low-resolution (REœ 2000 and 4000)

Discovery of magnetic fields in the βCephei star ξ1 CMa and in several slowly pulsating B stars

We present the results of a magnetic survey of a sample of eight β Cephei stars and 26 slowly pulsating B (SPBs) stars with the FOcal Reducer low dispersion Spectrograph at the Very Large Telescope.

The magnetic field and wind confinement of beta Cephei: new clues for interpreting the Be phenomenon?

In this paper, we use the very recent spectropolarimetric observations of β Cep collected by Henrichs et al. and propose for this star a consistent model of the large-scale magnetic field and of the

Bright Be-shell stars

Echelle observations are presented and discussed for 23 of the 27 known "normal" shell stars brighter than about 6.5 mag. In addition to those typical cases, three stars with known transitions

Rotation and magnetic field in the Be star omega Orionis

Ori is a B2IIIe star for which rotational modulation and non-radial pulsations (NRP) have been recently investi- gated from two independent observational campaigns in 1998 and 1999. Putting the data

Classical Be Stars

Recent results for classical Be stars are reviewed and links to general astrophysics are presented. Classical Be stars are B‐type stars close to the main sequence that exhibit line emission over the

A Magnetically Torqued Disk Model for Be Stars

Despite extensive study, the mechanisms by which Be star disks acquire high densities and angular momentum while displaying variability on many timescales are still far from clear. In this paper, we

Context. Be stars, which are characterised by intermittent emission in their hydrogen lines, are known to be fast rotators. This fast rotation is a requirement for the formation of a Keplerian disk,

Magnetic Rotator Winds and Keplerian Disks of Hot Stars

We set up equations and boundary conditions for magnetic rotator winds and disks in axially symmetric hot stars in a steady state. We establish a theorem stating that if a disk region has no
