EX Hya Spectra
Image Credit: Ishida et al 1994, PASJ 46, L81.
The ASCA SIS spectrum of the magnetic cataclysmic variable EX Hya.
Emission lines of Ne (neon), Mg (magnesium), Si (silicon), S (sulpher),
Ar (argon), and Fe (iron) have been detected.
The intensity ratios of these lines prove that X-ray emitting plasma of
a range (<1 keV to >5 keV) of temperatures co-exist in this system.
