Abstract (from CDS):

We present Chandra HETGS observations of the classical T Tauri star (CTTS) V4046 Sgr. The He-like triplets of OVII, NeIX, and SiXIII are clearly detected. Similar to the CTTS TW Hya and BP Tau, the forbidden lines of OVII and NeIX are weak compared to the intercombination line, indicating high plasma densities in the X-ray emitting regions. The SiXIII triplet, however, is within the low-density limit, in agreement with the predictions of the accretion funnel infall model with an additional stellar corona. V4046 Sgr is the first close binary exhibiting these features. Together with previous high-resolution X-ray data on TW Hya and BP Tau, and in contrast to T Tau, now three out of four CTTS show evidence of accretion funnels.
