Searching for Runaway OB Stars in Supernova Remnants

Searching for runaway stars in Supernova remnants gives us the possibility to estimate the mass ratio in binary systems in which there occur Supernova explosion. Such a method also gives information on portions of spectroscopic and close binaries among the stars on the main sequence with mass > 7–8 M⊙. More importantly, we can learn more about space velocities and spin periods of pulsars by this way. We have searched for runaway OB stars in central parts of 48 Supernova remnants with distances less than about 3 kpc. In 16 of the remnants in our sample, there is no candidate O or B type star and we have shown that pulsars (point sources) might be born not only in spectroscopic and close binaries. We have represented a list of stars which are candidates for runaway B type stars located in Supernova remnants. Spectroscopic investigations on these candidates could provide solutions for the problems mentioned above.
