Photospheric metals in hot DA white dwarfs


Previous observations of the soft X-ray and EUV region with the Einstein, EXOSAT, and ROSAT satellites have indicated thepresenceof photospheric absorbers inmostDAwhite dwarfs with Teff >∼ 40000K. Several of these objects have now been observed with the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE). Since the detection of individual metal lines is rather difficult… (More)
