Far-infrared and submillimetre observations of the Crab nebula

  title={Far-infrared and submillimetre observations of the Crab nebula},
  author={David A. Green and Richard. J. Tuffs and Cristina Carmen Popescu},
  journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society},
We present far-infrared (FIR) and submillimetre images of the Crab nebula, taken with the ISOPHOT instrument onboard the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) and with the Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. The ISOPHOT observations were made in the bands centred at 60, 100 and 170 µm, with FWHM of equivalent area Gaussian beams of 44, 47 and 93 arcsec, respectively. The 850-µm SCUBA image was processed using a maximum-entropy method algorithm and… 
Spitzer Space Telescope Infrared Imaging and Spectroscopy of the Crab Nebula
We present 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0, 24, and 70 μm images of the Crab Nebula obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope IRAC and MIPS cameras, low- and high-resolution Spitzer IRS spectra of selected
Whether supernovae are major sources of dust in galaxies is a long-standing debate. We present infrared and submillimeter photometry and spectroscopy from the Herschel Space Observatory of the Crab
A Spectroscopic Study of Supernova Remnants with the Infrared Space Observatory
We present far-infrared (FIR) spectroscopy of supernova remnants (SNRs) based on the archival data of the Infrared Space Observatory taken with the Long Wavelength Spectrometer (LWS). Our sample

Dust Properties of Super-Nova Remnant (Crab Nebula) Using AKARI Survey
We present the distribution of dust color temperature, Planck's function, dust mass, and visual extinction in the far-infrared (140 μm and 90 μm) AKARI surveys of the Crab Nebula using Sky View
The variability of the Crab nebula in radio: no radio counterpart to gamma-ray flares
We present new Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) radio images of the Crab Nebula at 5.5 GHz, taken at two epochs separated by 6 days about two months after a gamma-ray flare in 2012 July. We find no
The Crab Nebula as a standard candle in very high-energy astrophysics
The continuum high-energy gamma-ray emission between 1 GeV and 100 TeV from the Crab Nebula has been measured for the first time in overlapping energy bands by the Fermi large-area telescope
A bright molecular core in a crab nebula filament
In a sub-arcsec near-infrared survey of the Crab Nebula using the new Spartan Infrared Camera, we have found several knots with high surface brightness in the H2 2.12 μm line and a very large H2 2.12


Far-Infrared Photometry of a Statistical Sample of Late-Type Virgo Cluster Galaxies*
We present deep diffraction-limited far-infrared (FIR) strip maps of a sample of 63 galaxies later than S0 and brighter than BT = 16.8, selected from the Virgo Cluster Catalogue of Binggeli, Sandage,
Evidence for single-temperature dust in the Crab nebula from a reanalysis of its infrared spectrum
THE Crab nebula, the remnant of the celebrated supernova of 1054 (refs 1, 2), lies 2 kpc from the Earth3,4 and is the most powerful neutron-star-driven nebulosity known. Its emission from radio to
Dust in the Tycho, Kepler and Crab supernova remnants
SuperNova Remnants (SNR) have been extensively studied in radio, X-rays and optical, but barely in the InfraRed (IR). From IRAS observations, SNR are known to be IR emitters, but the origin of the
The Crab Nebula's Moving Wisps in Radio
We present three high-resolution radio images of the Crab Nebula, taken in 1998.6, 1998.8, and 2000.1 with the VLA. These are the best radio images of the Crab to date. We show that, near the pulsar,
