The Physics of Supernova Blast Waves. I. Kinematics of Dem L 71 in the Large Magellanic Cloud


We present the results from Fabry-Perot imaging spectroscopy of the Balmer-dominated supernova remnant DEM L 71 (0505−67.9 ) in the LMC. Spectra extracted from the entire circumference of the blast wave reveal the broad and narrow component Hα line emission characteristic of non-radiative shocks in partially neutral gas. The new spectra of DEM L 71 include… (More)
