X-ray Studies of Supernova Remnants

19 Mar 2020, 11:25



Laura Lopez (Ohio State University)


Modern X-ray telescopes have revealed the exquisite detail and complexity of supernova remnants (SNRs) at high energies. The metals synthesized in explosions are X-ray bright for many thousands of years, and Chandra, XMM-Newton, Suzaku, and NuSTAR have offered an up-close view of the nucleosynthetic products and their dispersal into the interstellar medium (ISM). In this talk, I will review the major advances facilitated by X-ray observations of SNRs, particularly regarding the nature of explosions, progenitor stars, and particle acceleration. I will also discuss the exciting future prospects for SNR studies, particularly with SRG and X-ray microcalorimeters.
