The X-ray Emission and the Magnetic Fields of Late-Type Stars
Source: Astrophysics and Space Science, Volume 282, Number 3, 2002 , pp. 477-488(12)
We present the results of X-ray luminosities of some active late-type stars, based on data primarily from the ROSAT position sensitive proportional counter (PSPC). According to the observations, we divide the stars into four groups: single, wide binary, binary and RS CVn. We investigated the correlation between the X-ray emission and the hardness ratio, coronal temperature, magnetic field strength, magnetic flux density. Our results suggest that the magnetic field plays a very important role in stellar X-ray emission.
