Hydrogen spectrum of SS433 system

  • 25 Accesses

We propose that the hydrogen spectrum in intense magnetic fields will help clarify the mechanisms which govern the SS433 system. In ultra high magnetic fields the standard hydrogen spectrum is superimposed on the Landau levels. There is, however, one deep-lying level in hydrogen at an energy of 50 eV to greater than 200 eV, depending on the magnetic field strength typical of neutron stars in x-ray binaries. When this level manifests itself it will give an indication of the magnetic field strength at the location of the radiating material; it could thus support the infall model SS433.
