Phase Resolved X-Ray Spectral Analysis of Intermediate Polars EX Hya and FO Aqr
Physics Department, Middle East Technical University, Ankara
Published online: 8 January 2014
Intermediate Polars (IPs): EX Hya and FO Aqr whichs are a subclass of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) where a white dwarf with magnetic field strength of about 1-10MG accretes material from a main sequence companion through a truncated disc. In this talk we present orbital and spin phase-resolved X-ray spectroscopy of EX Hya and orbital phase-resolved X-ray spectroscopy of FO Aqr. We utilize XMM-Newton archive data of these objects for analysis. We investigate the change of the source spectrum over the spin and orbital periods. This analysis enhances our understanding about the accretion structure in these systems, temperature and composition of the X-ray emitting region together with the structure of the outer accretion disc and absorption in the system
