ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; X-ray sources ; Cross identifications Mission_Name: Chandra Keywords: open clusters and associations: individual (Trapezium) - stars: early-type - stars: formation - techniques: spectroscopic - X-rays: stars Abstract: We used the High-Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer on board the Chandra X-Ray Observatory to perform two observations, separated by 3 weeks, of the Orion Trapezium region. The zeroth-order images on the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer provide spatial resolution of 0.5" and moderate energy resolution. Within a 160"x140" region around the Orion Trapezium, we resolve 111 X-ray sources with luminosities between 7x1028 and 2x1032ergs/s. We do not detect any diffuse emission. All but six sources are identified. File Summary:
