High Resolution X-ray Spectroscopic Constraints on Cooling-flow Models for Clusters of Galaxies


We present high resolution X-ray spectra of 14 putative cooling-flow clusters of galaxies obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on XMM-Newton. The clusters in the sample span a large range of temperatures and mass deposition rates. Various of these spectra exhibit line emission from O VIII, Ne X, Mg XII & XI, Al XIII & XII, Si XIV & XIII, N VII… (More)
