Abstract

From a 45ks Chandra observation of V42G Oph we have obtained high-resolution X-ray spectra at moderate signal-to-noise, and a, good quality, uninterrupted lightcurve. The spectra are reasonably fit with a cooling flow model, similar to EX Hya and U Gem. Our analysis of the Chandra and additional X-ray/optical lightcurves reveals a persistent modulation at 4.2 hr from 1988 to 2003, likely the white dwarf spin period indicating an intermediate polar nature for V426 Oph.

Resumen

Resumen

De las observaciones de 45 ks de Chandra de V42G Oph hemos obtenido espectros de rayos X de alta resolución con relación señal-a-ruido moderada, y una curva de luz no interrumpida de buena calidad. Los espectros se adaptan razonablemente a un modelo de flujo de enfriamiento, similar a EX Hya y U Gem. Nuestro análisis de las curvas de luz de Chandra y las adicionales de rayos X/óptico revela una modulación persistente a 4.2 hr desde 1988 hasta 2003, probablemente el período de giro de la enana blanca, indicando una naturaleza polar intermedia, para, V426 Oph.
