Suzaku Spectroscopy of the Extended X - Ray Emission in M 17


We present the results of a Suzaku spectroscopic study of the soft extended X-ray emission in the H II region M17. The spectrum of the extended emission was obtained with a high signal-to-noise ratio in a spatially-resolved manner using the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS). We established that the contamination by unresolved point sources, the Galactic… (More)
