We present an analysis of the Suzaku observations of the prototype wind-blown bubble NGC 6888 which is based both on use of standard spectral models and on a direct comparison of theoretical models with observations. The X-ray spectra of NGC 6888 are soft and most of the X-rays are in the 0.3-1.5 keV energy range. But, hard X-rays (1.5-4.0 keV) are also detected (~10% of the observed flux). The corresponding spectral fits require a relatively cool plasma with kT ≤ 0.5 keV, but a much hotter… Expand

X-ray emission from the Wolf–Rayet bubble NGC 6888 – II. XMM–Newton EPIC observations
We present deep XMM-Newton EPIC observations of the Wolf-Rayet (WR) bubble NGC6888 around the star WR136. The complete X-ray mapping of the nebula confirms the distribution of the hot gas in threeExpand
X-ray Emission from the Wolf-Rayet Bubble NGC 6888. I. Chandra ACIS-S Observations
We analyze Chandra observations of the Wolf-Rayet (WR) bubble NGC 6888. This WR bubble presents similar spectral and morphological X-ray characteristics to those of S 308, the only other WR bubbleExpand
On the diffuse X-ray emission from the Wolf–Rayet bubble NGC 2359
A recent XMM-Newton observation (Zhekov 2014) has revealed diffuse X-ray emission inside the nebula NGC 2359 around the Wolf-Rayet star WR 7. Taking advantage of an improved point-source rejectionExpand
Absence of hot gas within the Wolf-Rayet bubble around WR 16

X-RAY EMISSION FROM THE WOLF-RAYET BUBBLE S 308
ABSTRACT The Wolf-Rayet (WR) bubble S 308 around the WR star HD 50896 is one of the only two WR bubbles known to possess X-ray emission. We present XMM-Newton observations of three fields of this WRExpand
Ionization structure and chemical abundances of the Wolf-Rayet nebula NGC 6888 with integral field spectroscopy
Context. The study of nebulae around Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars gives us clues about the mass-loss history of massive stars, as well as about the chemical enrichment of the interstellar medium (ISM).Expand
Feedback by massive stars and the emergence of superbubbles II. X-ray properties
Context. In a previous paper we investigated the energy transfer of massive stars to the interstellar medium (ISM) as a function of time and the geometrical configuration of three massive stars viaExpand
X-rays from the colliding wind binary WR 146
The X-ray emission from the massive binary WR 146R is analysed in the framework of the colliding stellar wind (CSW) picture. The theoretical CSW model spectra match well the shape of the observedExpand
