3C 400.2 belongs to the mixed-morphology supernova remnant class, showing center-filled X-ray and shell-like radio morphology. We present a study of 3C 400.2 with archival Suzaku and Fermi-LAT observations. We find recombining plasma (RP) in the Suzaku spectra of north-east and south-east regions. The spectra of these regions are well described by two-component thermal plasma models: the hard component is in RP, while the soft component is in collisional ionization equilibrium (CIE) conditions. The RP has enhanced abundances, indicating that the X-ray emission has an ejecta origin, while the CIE has solar abundances associated with the interstellar material. The X-ray spectra of north-west and south-west regions are best fitted by a two-component thermal plasma model: an ionizing and a CIE plasma. We have detected GeV gamma-ray emission from 3C 400.2 at the level of similar to 5 sigma, assuming a point-like source model with a power-law (PL) type spectrum. We have also detected a new GeV source at the level of similar to 13 sigma, assuming a Gaussian extension model with a PL-type spectrum in the neighborhood of the supernova remnant. We report the analysis results of 3C 400.2 and the new extended gammaray source, and discuss the nature of gamma-ray emission of 3C 400.2 in the context of existing NANTEN CO data, Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory H I data, and the Suzaku X-ray analysis results.

X-RAY SPECTRAL AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A ULX IN NGC 4258 (M106)
Avdan, H.; Avdan, S.; AKYÜZ, AYSUN; Balman, Şölen; AKSAKER, NAZIM; AKKAYA ORALHAN, Inci (American Astronomical Society, 2016-09-10)
We study the X-ray and optical properties of the ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX) X-6 in the nearby galaxy NGC 4258 (M106) based on the archival XMM-Newton, Chandra, Swift, and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations. The source has a peak luminosity of L-X similar to 2 x 10(39) erg s(-1) in the XMM-Newton observation of 2004 June. Consideration of the hardness ratios and the spectral model parameters shows that the source seems to exhibit possible spectral variations throughout the X-ray observations. In...
Orbital and spin phase-resolved spectroscopy of the intermediate polar EX Hya using XMM-Newton data
Pekon, Y.; Balman, Şölen (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-02-01)
We present the orbital phase-resolved spectra of an intermediate polar, EX Hya, together with the spin phase-resolved spectra during two different epochs using the X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton), European Photon Imaging Camera (pn instrument). We find that the source at the two epochs has the same X-ray luminosity of similar to 6.5 x 1031 erg s-1. We detect spectral variations between the 2000 and 2003 observations of the source. We fitted the spectrum using a neutral hydrogen absorption model with...
Frequency-resolved spectroscopy of XB1323-619 using XMM-Newton data: detection of a reflection region in the disc
Balman, Şölen (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-09-21)
We present the frequency-resolved energy spectra (FRS) of the low-mass X-ray binary dipper XB1323-619 during persistent emission in four different frequency bands using an archival XMM-Newton observation. FRS method helps to probe the inner zones of an accretion disc. XB1323-619 is an Atoll source and a type-I burster. We find that the FRS is well described by a single blackbody component with kT in a range 1.0-1.4 keV responsible for the source variability in the frequency ranges of 0.002-0.04 and 0.07-0.3...
VERITAS OBSERVATIONS OF THE BL LAC OBJECT 1ES 1218+304
Acciari, V. A.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2009-04-20)
The VERITAS collaboration reports the detection of very-high-energy gamma-ray emission from the high-frequency-peaked BL Lac object 1ES 1218+304 located at a redshift of z = 0.182. A gamma-ray signal was detected with a statistical significance of 10.4 standard deviations (10.4 sigma) for the observations taken during the first three months of 2007, confirming the discovery of this object made by the MAGIC collaboration. The photon spectrum between similar to 160 GeV and similar to 1.8 TeV is well described...
The first resolved and detected classical nova shell in X-rays: The shell of Nova Persei 1901
Balman, Şölen; Ogelman, HB (IOP Publishing, 1999-06-20)
We present the ROSAT High-Resolution Imager data of the first resolved and detected classical nova shell in the X-ray wavelengths: the shell of Nova Persei 1901. We find that the X-ray nebula is composed of knots/clumps and has an elliptical shape with a total count rate of about 0.01 +/- 0.001 counts s(-1). We estimate that the spectrum is of thermal origin with a luminosity of similar to 8.0 x 10(31) ergs s(-1) and an X-ray temperature of similar to 2.0 x 10(6) K in the 0.1-2.4 keV energy range. The knots...
