  • Aims. The X-ray emission of massive stars has been studied when these objects are in their main-sequence phase, as well as when they are in their Wolf-Rayet phase. However, the X-ray properties of the transitional luminous blue variable (LBV) phase remain unknown. Methods. Using a dedicated but limited XMM-Newton survey and archival XMM-Newton and Chandra observations, we performed the first X-ray survey of LBVs: about half of the known LBVs or candidate LBVs were studied. Results. Apart from… CONTINUE READING
