    • Chandra observations of the HII complex G5.89-0.39 and TeV gamma-ray source HESSJ1800-240B Peer-reviewed

      We present the results of our investigation, using a Chandra X-ray observation, into the stellar population of the massive star formation region G5.89-0.39, and its potential connection to the coincident TeV gamma-ray source HESSJ1800-240B. G5.89-0.39 comprises two separate HII regions G5.89-0.39A and G5.89-0.39B (an ultra-compact HII region). We identified 159 individual X-ray point sources in our observation using the source detection algorithm wavdetect. 35 X-ray sources are associated with the HII complex G5.89-0.39. The 35 X-ray sources represent an average unabsorbed luminosity (0.3-10keV) of similar to 10(30.5) erg/s, typical of B7-B5 type stars. The potential ionising source of G5.89-0.39B known as Feldt's star is possibly identified in our observation with an unabsorbed X-ray luminosity suggestive of a B7-B5 star. The stacked energy spectra of these sources is well-fitted with a single thermal plasma APEC model with kT similar to 5keV, and column density N-H= 2.6 x10(22)cm(-2)(A(V) similar to 10). The residual (source-subtracted) X-ray emission towards G5.89-0.39A and B is about 30% and 25% larger than their respective stacked source luminosities. Assuming this residual emission is from unresolved stellar sources, the total B-type-equivalent stellar content in G5.89-0.39A and B would be 75 stars, consistent with an earlier estimate of the total stellar mass of hot stars in G5.89-0.39. We have also looked at the variability of the 35 X-ray sources in G5.89-0.39. Ten of these sources are flagged as being variable. Further studies are needed to determine the exact causes of the variability, however the variability could point towards pre-main sequence stars. Such a stellar population could provide sufficient kinetic energy to account for a part of the GeV to TeV gamma-ray emission in the source HESSJ1800-240B. However, future arc-minute angular resolution gamma-ray imaging will be needed to disentangle the potential gamma-ray components powered by G5.89-0.39 from those powered by the W28 SNR.

      Pulsars are rapidly spinning, highly magnetized neutron stars, created in the gravitational collapse of massive stars. We report the detection of pulsed giga-electron volt gamma rays from the young pulsar PSR J0540-6919 in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. This is the first gamma-ray pulsar detected in another galaxy. It has the most luminous pulsed gamma-ray emission yet observed, exceeding the Crab pulsar's by a factor of 20. PSR J0540-6919 presents an extreme test case for understanding the structure and evolution of neutron star magnetospheres.

    • Study of Non-thermal X-ray Emission Produced by Sub-relativistic and Ultra-relativistic Particles in Supernova Remnants

      We study sub-relativistic and ultra-relativistic components of high-energy particles associated with supernova remnants (SNRs) using X-ray imaging and spectroscopic observations with ASCA and Chandra. Based on the extensive analysis of two shell-type SNRs, gamma Cygni and RX J1713.7−3946, we have found new X-ray features in SNRs, namely (1) very flat-spectrum X-ray emission, and (2) unexpectedly complex structures in synchrotron X-ray images. We propose that the very flat X-ray spectrum is the characteristic bremsstrahlung X-ray spectrum, providing us a new diagnostic tool to study the largely-unknown component of low-energy cosmic rays in the Galaxy. Also we argue that the resolved X-ray features in the synchrotron X-ray images may challenge the perceptions of standard (diffusive shock-acceleration) models concerning the production, propagation and radiation of relativistic particles in supernova remnants.
