We present first results of a long-term study: Searching for OB-type runaway stars inside supernova remnants (SNRs). We identified spectral types and measured radial velocities by optical spectroscopic observations and we found an early type runaway star inside SNR S147. HD 37424 is a B0.5V-type star with a peculiar velocity of 74 +/- 8 kms(-1). Tracing back the past trajectories via Monte Carlo simulations, we found that HD 37424 was located at the same position as the central compact object, PSR J0538+2817, 30 +/- 4 kyr ago. This position is only similar to 4 arcmin away from the geometrical centre of the SNR. So, we suggest that HD 37424 was the pre-supernova binary companion to the progenitor of the pulsar and the SNR. We found a distance of 1333(-112)(+103) pc to the SNR. The zero-age main sequence progenitor mass should be greater than 13 M-circle dot. The age is 30 +/- 4 kyr and the total visual absorption towards the centre is 1.28 +/- 0.06 mag. For different progenitor masses, we calculated the pre-supernova binary parameters. The Roche lobe radii suggest that it was an interacting binary in the late stages of the progenitor.

We investigate the supernova remnant (SNR) 3C 397 and its neighboring pulsar PSR J1906+0722 in high energy gamma rays by using nearly six years of archival data of Large Area Telescope on board Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope (Fermi-LAT). The off-pulse analysis of gamma-ray flux from the location of PSR J1906+0722 reveals an excess emission which is found to be very close to the radio location of 3C 397. Here, we present the preliminary results of this gamma-ray analysis of 3C 397 and PSR J1906+0722.

We report on observations of very high energy gamma rays from the shell-type supernova remnant (SNR) Cassiopeia A with the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System stereoscopic array of four imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in Arizona. The total exposure time for these observations is 22 hr, accumulated between September and November of 2007. The gamma-ray source associated with the SNR Cassiopeia A was detected above 200 GeV with a statistical significance of 8.3 sigma. The estimated...
Discovery of recombining plasma inside the extended gamma-ray supernova remnant HB9
Sezer, A.; Ergin, Tülün; Yamazaki, R.; Sano, H.; Fukui, Y. (2019-11-01)
We present the results from the Suzaku X-ray Imaging Spectrometer observation of the mixed-morphology supernova remnant (SNR) HB9 (G160.9+2.6). We discovered recombining plasma (RP) in the western Suzaku observation region and the spectra here are well described by a model having collisional ionization equilibrium (CIE) and RP components. On the other hand, the X-ray spectra from the eastern Suzaku observation region are best reproduced by the CIE and non-equilibrium ionization model. We discuss possible sc...

We report our findings on a new quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO) and a long period from the ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX) X-2 in nearby galaxy NGC 4736 based on the Chandra and XMM-Newton archival data. To examine the timing properties, power density spectra of the source have been obtained using Fast Fourier Transform. Also the spectral parameters of the source have been calculated by obtaining and fitting the energy spectra. Power density spectrum of this source reveals a QPO peak at with an fractional...
Observation of gamma-ray emission from the galaxy M87 above 250 GeV with VERITAS
Acciari, V. A.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2008-05-20)
The multiwavelength observation of the nearby radio galaxy M87 provides a unique opportunity to study in detail processes occurring in active galactic nuclei from radio waves to TeV gamma-rays. Here we report the detection of gamma-ray emission above 250 GeV from M87 in spring 2007 with the VERITAS atmospheric Cerenkov telescope array and discuss its correlation with the X-ray emission. The gamma-ray emission is measured to be pointlike with an intrinsic source radius less than 4.5'. The differential energy...
