Abstract

We present high resolution optical spectroscopy of the cataclysmic variable (CV) V795 Her. The time- and phase- dependent behaviour of the emission source is examined using two-dimensional image analysis and Doppler reconstruction techniques on the orbital profiles. A clear S-wave modulation of a weak emission feature in the Hß and Hγ line wings (extending to ~1800kms-1) is present, with complex asymmetric properties.
