  journal={arXiv: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena},
Stars over a wide range of masses and evolutionary stages are nowadays known to emit X-rays. This X-ray emission is a unique probe of the most energetic phenomena occurring in the circumstellar environment of these stars, and provides precious insight on magnetic phenomena or hydrodynamic shocks. Owing to its large collecting area, Athena+ will open up an entirely new window on these phenomena. Indeed, Athena+ will not only allow us to study many more objects with an unprecedented spectral… 
Athena: the X-ray observatory to study the hot and energetic universe
Hot gas pervades the Universe: about half of the baryonic content in the Universe is expected to be at T > 105 K, and there are as many baryons at T > 107 trapped in galaxy clusters as there are
Deep X-ray view of the Class I YSO Elias 29 with XMM-Newton and NuSTAR
X-ray emission is a characteristic feature of young stellar objects (YSOs) and the result of the interplay between rotation, magnetism, and accretion. For this reason high energy phenomena are key
Phase resolved X-ray spectroscopy of HDE 228766: Probing the wind of an extreme Of + /WNLha star
HDE228766 is a very massive binary system hosting a secondary component, which is probably in an intermediate evolutionary stage between an Of supergiant and an WN star. The wind of this star
Athena+: The first Deep Universe X-ray Observatory
The Advanced Telescope for High-energy Astrophysics (Athena+) is being proposed to ESA as the L2 mission (for a launch in 2028) and is specifically designed to answer two of the most pressing
Interacting winds in massive binaries
Massive stars feature highly energetic stellar winds that interact whenever two such stars are bound in a binary system. The signatures of these interactions are nowadays found over a wide range of
The Wide Field Imager instrument for Athena
ESA’s next large X-ray mission ATHENA is designed to address the Cosmic Vision science theme 'The Hot and Energetic Universe'. It will provide answers to the two key astrophysical questions how does
Erratum: "NuSTAR Unveils a Compton-thick Type 2 Quasar in MrK 34" (2014, ApJ, 792, 117)
We present Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) 3–40 keV observations of the optically selected Type 2 quasar (QSO2) SDSS J1034+6001 or Mrk 34. The high-quality hard X-ray spectrum and
Background simulations for the ATHENA X-IFU instrument: impact on the instrumental design
On 28 november 2013 ESA selected “The Hot and Energetic Universe” as the scientific theme for a large mission to be flown in 2028 in the second lagrangian point, and ATHENA is the mission that will
Thermal analysis of the WFI on the ATHENA observatory
The WFI (Wide-Field Imager) instrument is one of two instruments of the ATHENA (Advanced Telescope for High- ENergy Astrophysics) mission. ATHENA is the second L-class mission in ESA’s Cosmic Vision
