We investigate the X-ray properties of NGC 1893, a young cluster (∼1-2Myr) in the outer part of the Galaxy (galactic radius ≥11kpc) where we expect differences in the disk evolution and in the mass distribution of the stars, to explore the X-ray emission of its members and compare it with that of young stars in star forming regions near to the Sun. Description: We analyze 5 deep Chandra ACIS-I observations with a total exposure time of 450ks. Source events of the 1021 X-ray sources have been extracted with the IDL-based routine ACIS-Extract. Using spectral fitting and quantile analysis of X-ray spectra, we derive X-ray luminosities and compare the respective properties of Class II and Class III members. We also evaluate the variability of sources using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and we identify flares in the lightcurves. File Summary:
