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

Balman, Şölen
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.

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.

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...
Timing and spectral analysis of 2S 1417-624 during its 2018 outburst
Serim, Muhammed Miraç; Ozudogru, O. C.; Donmez, C. K.; Sahiner, S.; Serim, D.; Baykal, Altan; Inam, S. C. (2022-02-01)
We investigate timing and spectral characteristics of the transient X-ray pulsar 2S 1417-624 during its 2018 outburst with NICER follow up observations. We describe the spectra with high-energy cut-off and partial covering fraction absorption (PCFA) model and present flux-dependent spectral changes of the source during the 2018 outburst. Utilizing the correlation-mode switching of the spectral model parameters, we confirm the previously reported sub-critical to critical regime transitions and we argue that ...
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...

In this study, predictive accuracy of Gray Gas and SLW-1 approximations is benchmarked against Spectral Line-Based Weighted Sum of Grey Gases Model (SLW) in multidimensional enclosures involving gray/non-gray absorbing, emitting and scattering particles.
