A study of planetary nebulae possessing binary central stars

Tyndall, Amy January 2014 (has links)
In this thesis, detailed studies of three different types of binary central stars withinplanetary nebulae (bCSPNe) are presented, with the aim of investigating the effectssuch a range of binary systems has on the morphology and kinematics of the surroundingnebulae, as well as discussing what the implication is for the interaction betweenthe stars themselves. A close binary, an intermediate period binary, and a compactbinary system are examined. The close binary PN HaTr 4 is the first system to be studied via detailed spatiokinematicalanalysis and modelling, and it is one of few known to contain a postcommonenvelope (CE) central star system. CE evolution is believed to play an importantrole in the shaping of PNe, but the exact nature of this role is yet to be understood. High spatial and spectral resolution spectroscopy is presented alongside deep narrowbandimagery to derive the three-dimensional morphology of HaTr 4. The nebula isfound to display an extended ovoid morphology with an enhanced equatorial regionconsistent with a toroidal waist - a feature believed to be typical amongst PNe withpost-CE central stars. The nebular symmetry axis is found to lie perpendicular to theorbital plane of the central binary, concordant with the idea that the formation andevolution of HaTr 4 has been strongly influenced by its central binary. Next, PN LoTr 1 is studied using a combination of spectra and photometry, andis thought to contain an intermediate-period binary central star system (P = 100–1500d). Here, we confirm the binary nature of the central star of LoTr 1, consisting of aK1 III star and a hot white dwarf (WD). The nebula of LoTr 1 presents a very differentmorphology than that of other seemingly similar bCSPNe possessing barium stars,A70 and WeBo 1 (included in this study for direct comparison), which may be anindication of a difference in their mass-transfer episodes. There is no evidence ofbarium enhancement in the K1 III companion, but it is shown to have a rotation periodof 6.4 d which is most likely a sign of mass accretion. Such a system represents arare opportunity to further the investigation into the formation of barium stars andintermediate period, post-asymptotic giant branch (AGB) systems. Finally, the first analysis of an object from the new POPIPlaN catalogue of PNe ispresented. Photometry of the central star system of PN G033.8+01.5 showed it to bea compact binary of P = 0.1268 d, consisting of a cool M2 V main sequence star anda hot WD surrounded by a very asymmetric PN. The very short orbital period leadsto the possibility of PN G033.8+01.5 being a cataclysmic variable candidate, which inturn leads to the question of whether the visible nebulous material is that of a true PNor if it is the remnant of an outburst.

The Bowen Fluorescence Mechanism in Planetary Nebulae and Seyfert Galaxy Nuclei

Weymann, R. J., Williams, R. E. 01 1900 (has links)
The efficiency of the Bowen fluorescence mechanism in models of planetary nebulae and Seyfert galaxy nuclei has been calculated by solving the equation of transfer for He II Ly -o( and the Bowen lines using the Feautrier method. The calculated efficiencies, which do not show significant differences between planetary nebulae and Seyfert galaxies, range from about 40% to 50% for realistic models. These values are somewhat higher than recent empirical determinations of Bowen conversion in planetary nebulae. Certain discrepancies between theoretical and observed line ratios are noted, however, which make the comparison with observation ambiguous. The efficiencies are shown to be rather insensitive to changes in various parameters. It is also noted that observations do not necessarily show that the Bowen lines are systematically weaker in Seyfert galaxy nuclei than in planetary nebulae.

EGB 6 is a faint, large, ancient planetary nebula (PN). Its central star, a hot DAOZ white dwarf (WD), is a prototype of a rare class of PN nuclei associated with dense, compact emission-line knots. The central star also shows excess fluxes in both the near-infrared (NIR) and mid-infrared (MIR). In a 2013 paper, we used Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images to show that the compact nebula is a point-like source, located 0 16(similar to 118 AU) from the WD. We attributed the NIR excess to an M dwarf companion star, which appeared to coincide with the dense emission knot. We now present new ground-based NIR spectroscopy, showing that the companion is actually a much cooler source with a continuous spectrum, apparently a dust-enshrouded low-luminosity star. New HST images confirm common proper motion of the emission knot and red source with the WD. The I-band, NIR, and MIR fluxes are variable, possibly on timescales as short as days. We can fit the spectral energy distribution (SED) with four blackbodies (the WD, a similar to 1850 K NIR component, and MIR dust at 385 and 175 K). Alternatively, we show that the NIR/MIR SED is very similar to that of Class 0/I young stellar objects. We suggest a scenario in which the EGB 6 nucleus is descended from a wide binary similar to the Mira system, in which a portion of the wind from an AGB star was captured into an accretion disk around a companion star; a remnant of this disk has survived to the present time and is surrounded by gas photoionized by UV radiation from the WD.
