Spectroscopic Tomography of a Wind-Collision Region
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings book series (ASSSP, volume 37)
Changes in the P Cygni profile of the 1.083-μm He I line in the spectrum of the colliding-wind Wolf-Rayet system WR140 as it passes through periastron passage allow us to map the region where the fast winds of the WC7 and O5 stars collide.
