Abstract

Preliminary results of an extended multi-wavelength study of bright B- and Be-type stars are presented. This project aims at finding evidence for the existence of white-dwarf companions to Be stars which are predicted as the result of close binary evolution. Comparison of ROSAT all-sky survey data with simultaneous measurements of Hα profiles and infrared photometry suggests that there is no difference in the X-ray behaviour of Be stars with respect to that of normal B stars. The ROSAT X-ray luminosities of B and Be stars range from 10−8 to 10−5 times the bolometric luminosity.
