XMM-Newton observations of two candidate supernova remnants.


Abstract (from CDS):

Candidate supernova remnants (SNRs) G23.5+0.1 and G25.5+0.0 were observed by XMM-Newton in the course of a snapshot survey of plerionic and composite SNRs in the Galactic plane. In the field of G23.5+0.1, we detected an extended source, ∼3' in diameter, which we tentatively interpret as a pulsar wind nebula (PWN) of the middle-aged radio pulsar B1830-08 (J1833-0827; P = 85.3 ms, τ = 147 kyr, {dot}E = 5.8x1035 erg/s, d = 5.7 kpc), with the PWN luminosity L_0.2-10 keV_~ 5x1033 erg/s ~ 8x10–3 {dot}E . The pulsar is not resolved in the EPIC images. Our analysis suggests an association between PSR B1830-08 and the surrounding diffuse radio emission. If the radio emission is due to the SNR, then the pulsar must be significantly younger than its characteristic age. Alternatively, the radio emission may come from a relic PWN. The field also contains SGR 1833-0832 and another middle-aged pulsar B1829-08 (J1832-0827; P = 647 ms, τ = 161 kyr,{dot}E observation. In the field of G25.5+0.0, which contains the extended TeV source HESS J1837-069, we detected the recently discovered young high-energy pulsar J1838-0655 (P = 70.5 ms, τ = 23 kyr, {dot}E 5.5x1036 erg/s) embedded in a PWN with extent of 1'.3. The unabsorbed pulsar + PWN luminosity is L _2-11 keV_~ 2x1034 erg/s ~ 4x10–3 {dot}E at an assumed distance of 7 kpc. We also detected another PWN candidate (AX J1837.3-0652) with an extent of 2' and unabsorbed luminosity L_2-10 keV_~ 4 x 1033 erg/s at d = 7 kpc. The third X-ray source, located within the extent of the HESS J1837-069, has a peculiar extended radio counterpart, possibly a radio galaxy with a double nucleus or a microquasar. We did not find any evidence of the SNR emission in the G25.5+0.0 field. We provide detailed multiwavelength analysis and identifications of other field sources and discuss robustness of the G25.5+0.0 and G23.5+0.1 classifications as SNRs.
