[113.07] Atlas of Chandra Hot Star Spectra

The Chandra Observatory is obtaining transmission grating spectra of many hot stars. We present a prototype of Chandra Spectral Atlas of Hot Stars, which will include publicly available grating spectra of WR, O, and B stars of representative spectral classes. Currently, there are 20 HETG spectra of 14 unique objects in the archives which will all be public within a year. These high-resolution spectra will be useful for comparison and characterization of low-resolution energy-resolved spectra of other hot stars from ACIS images. The atlas will be available as a research aid in CIAO, and through a dedicated web site.

Financial assistance was provided from the Chandra X-ray Center NASA Contract NAS8-39073.
