White Dwarf Mass Estimation with X-ray Spectroscopy
Proceedings of Frontier Research in Astrophysics – III — PoS(FRAPWS2018)
X-ray thermal and reflection spectral models of intermediate polars (IPs) are introduced. The thermal model is based on a hydrodynamical calculation for the Post-Shock Accretion Column (PSAC). The total PSAC spectrum is obtained by integrating the spectrum along the PSAC with the calculated plasma parameters. The thermal spectrum is harder with a more massive WD because of its deeper potential. The reflection is modeled by a Monte-Carlo simulation. The PSAC irradiates the cool WD with thedoi:10.22323/1.331.0057 fatcat:leovouo4pjdmhezk4yyxgdncye
