ISO spectral observations of the supernova remnant RCW103 are presented. This object is the prototype of relatively young remnants ( ∼103 yr) with fast shocks ( vs ∼1000 km s−1) interacting with dense interstellar medium. The spectrum is dominated by prominent lines of [NeII], [SiII], [FeII] and other low excitation species which provide, for the first time, a simple and reliable estimate of the gas abundances of refractory (Si, Fe, Ni) and non–refractory (Ne, P, S, Cl, Ar) species. Apart from… CONTINUE READING
