Iron-rich Ejecta in the Supernova Remnant Dem L71


Chandra X-ray observations of DEM L71, a supernova remnant (SNR) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), reveal a clear double shock morphology consisting of an outer blast wave shock surrounding a central bright region of reverse-shock heated ejecta. The abundances of the outer shock are consistent with LMC values, while the ejecta region shows enhanced… (More)
