FS Aurigae is famous for a variety of uncommon and puzzling periodic photometric and spectroscopic variabilities which do not fit well into any of the established sub-classes of cataclysmic variables. Here we present preliminary results of long-term monitoring of the system, conducted during the 2010-2011 observational season. We show that the long-term variability of FS Aur and the character of its outburst activity may be caused by variations in the mass transfer rate from the secondary star as the result of eccentricity modulation of a close binary orbit induced by the presence of a third body on a circumbinary orbit.
The development activity of a new experimental technique for the study of the fast electron transport in high density matter is reported. This new diagnostic tool enables the X-ray 2D imaging of ultrahigh intensity laser plasmas with simultaneous spectral resolution in a very large energy range to be obtained. Results from recent experiments are discussed, in which the electron propagation in multilayer targets was studied by using the Kα. In particular, results highlighting the role of anisotropic Bremsstrahlung are reported, for the sake of the explanation of the capabilities of the new diagnostics. A discussion of a test experiment conceived to extend the technique to a single-shot operation is finally given.
