We present here the results of an X-ray study of the supernova remnant 3C 400.2 (G53.6−2.2) using the ASCA data. 3C 400.2 has an unusual morphology at radio wavelengths, suggesting two SNRs superposed along the same line of sight, whereas its X-ray emission is known to be centrally peaked. We investigated the X-ray spectral variation across the remnant using the ASCA GIS and the ROSAT PSPC data. The X-ray spectra can be well fitted by thin thermal plasma models. However, there is no significant… CONTINUE READING
