J/ApJ/607/904       Chandra obs. of Trifid nebula            (Rho+, 2004)

Chandra observation of the Trifid nebula: X-ray emission from the O star complex and actively forming pre-main-sequence stars. Rho J., Ramirez S.V., Corcoran M.F., Hamaguchi K., Lefloch B. <Astrophys. J., 607, 904-912 (2004)> =2004ApJ...607..904R
ADC_Keywords: H II regions ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; X-ray sources Keywords: ISM: individual (Trifid Nebula) - stars: activity - stars: pre-main-sequence - X-rays: stars Abstract: The Trifid Nebula, a young star-forming H II region, was observed for 16hr by the ACIS-I detector on board the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. We detected 304 X-ray sources, 30% of which are hard sources and 70% of which have near-infrared counterparts. Description: The Trifid Nebula was observed with the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) detector on board Chandra on 2002 June 13. The results presented here arise from the imaging array (ACIS-I). File Summary:
