Application of the hot white dwarf atmosphere models to the X-ray data of classical novae

The analyses of X-ray emission from classical novae after outburst have shown that the soft X-ray emission below 1 keV, which is thought to originate from the photosphere of the white dwarf, is inconsistent with the simple black body model of emission. Thus, the ROSAT Position Sensitive Proportional Counter (PSPC) data (0.1-2.4 keV) of the classical novae V1974 Cygni 1992 and some others have been reanalyzed in order to understand the spectral development of novae in the X-ray wavelengths during the outburst stage together with the effect of the enhanced metal abundances in the white Dwarf (WD) atmosphere prior to the outburst. The X-ray spectrum of V1974 Cygni 1992 is fit with a hot white dwarf atmosphere emission model developed for the remnants of classical novae near the Eddington luminosity and a thermal plasma emission model to account for the harder Xray tail in the spectrum of the nova. The post-outburst X-ray spectrum of the remnant white dwarf is examined in the context of evolution on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram using an O-Ne and a C-O enhanced atmosphere emission model. A constant bolometric luminosity evolution is detected for the first time for a classical nova with increasing effective temperature and decreasing photospheric radius using the O-Ne enhanced model. A peak effective temperature of 51 eV (5.9x10(5) K) is detected at day 511 after outburst. The light curve of the hard X-ray component is found to be independent from the soft one. The maximum of the hard X-ray emission is reached at day similar to 150 after the outburst. The time evolution of the hard X-ray flux and the plasma temperatures decreasing from 10 keV to 1 keV suggest emission from shock heated gas as the origin of the hard X-ray component.

Balman, Şölen; Krautter, J (2001-10-01)
The analyses of X-ray emission from classical novae during the outburst stage have shown that the soft X-ray emission below 1 keV, which is thought to originate from the photosphere of the white dwarf, is inconsistent with the simple blackbody model of emission. Thus, ROSAT Position Sensitive Proportional Counter (PSPC) archival data of the classical Nova Mus 1983 (GQ Mus) have been re-analysed in order to understand the spectral development in the X-ray wavelengths during the outburst stage.

Numerical prediction of aft radiation of turbofan tones through exhaust jets
Özyörük, Yusuf (2009-08-07)
This paper describes a numerical methodology for calculating tonal noise propagation and radiation through turbomachinery exhaust ducts, including non-uniform background jet flows. The numerical method is based on solution of the linearized Euler equations directly in the frequency domain, employing a direct, sparse matrix solver in parallel. Acoustic sources are introduced into the computational domain via the perfectly matched layer equations. Various test cases including propagation through infinite duct...
Determination of optical parameters of Ga0.75In0.25Se layered crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2012-05-01)
The optical properties of the Ga0.75In0.25Se crystals have been investigated by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 380-1100 nm. The analysis of the results performed at room temperature revealed the presence of optical indirect transtions with band gap energy of 1.89 eV. The variation of the band gap energy as a function of temperature was also studied in the temperature range of 10-300 K. The rate of change of band gap energy (? = 6.2 x 10(4) eV/K) and absolute zer...

Pyramidal light-trapping structures of a range of length scales — and both periodic and random arrangements — are shown to yield similarly high absorption in thin film crystalline silicon photovoltaics. Through the combination of results from experiment and simulation, the trade-off between absorption effectiveness and ease of fabrication of various pyramidal light-trapping structures is investigated for application in thin-film crystalline silicon solar cells.
Effective theory of interacting fermions in shaken square optical lattices
Keleş, Ahmet; Liu, W. Vincent (2017-06-01)
We develop a theory of weakly interacting fermionic atoms in shaken optical lattices based on the orbital mixing in the presence of time-periodic modulations. Specifically, we focus on fermionic atoms in a circularly shaken square lattice with near-resonance frequencies, i.e., tuned close to the energy separation between the s band and the p bands. First, we derive a time-independent four-band effective Hamiltonian in the noninteracting limit. Diagonalization of the effective Hamiltonian yields a quasienerg...
