ABSTRA C T We present four epochs of high-resolution infrared spectroscopy of the peculiar X-ray binary Cygnus X-3. The observations cover quiescent, small-flaring and outburst states of the system as defined by radio and X-ray monitoring. The underlying infrared spectrum of the source, as observed during radio and X-ray quiescence and small-flaring states, is one of broad, weak He ii and N v emission. Spectral variability in this state is dominated by modulation at the 4.8-h orbital period of… Expand
