Dust Destruction in the Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant

  • Ravi Sankrit (a1), William P. Blair (a2), John C. Raymond (a3) and Brian J. Williams (a4)

Abstract

The Cygnus Loop supernova remnant serves as an excellent laboratory for the study of radiative and non-radiative shocks with speeds in the 150–450 km s−1 range. We present results on shock-excited emission and dust destruction based on Spitzer Space Telescope observations of two well-studied regions in the remnant, (i) a non-radiative shock filament along the NE limb, and (ii) the XA region, characterized by emission from bright radiative shocks.
