ASCA Observations of Supernova Remnants
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 12 April 2016
We present here preliminary results of the ASCA satellite. ASCA is equipped with X-ray telescopes that can observe the energy range up to 12 keV. There are two types of detector systems: GIS and SIS. The energy resolution of the SIS is 130 eV (FWHM at 6 keV) and can resolve emission lines clearly. For the PV phase, we planned to observe about 150 sources. Among them, there are 23 SNR's, some of which are presented here. We will be able to study the evolution of thin hot plasma in the SNRs.
