Measuring Mass-Loss Rates And Constraining Shock Physics Using X-Ray Line Profiles Of O Stars From The Chandra Archive

Abstract

We quantitatively investigate the extent of wind absorption signatures in the X-ray grating spectra of all non-magnetic, effectively single O stars in the Chandra archive via line profile fitting. Under the usual assumption of a spherically symmetric wind with embedded shocks, we confirm previous claims that some objects show little or no wind absorption… (More)
