We present spatially resolved X-ray spectroscopy of PSR B1951+32 and its pulsar wind nebula (PWN) in supernova remnant (SNR) CTB 80 using a Chandra observation. The Chandra X-ray map reveals clearly various components of a ram-pressure confined PWN embedded in the SNR ejecta: a point source representing the pulsar, X-ray emission from the bow shock, a luminous X-ray tail, a 30 diameter plateau whose northwestern part is absent, and the outside more diffuse X-ray emission. The plateau is just… CONTINUE READING
