  • Observational study on the fine structure and dynamics of a solar jet. II.
           Energy release process revealed by spectral analysis
    • Authors: Sakaue T; Tei A, Asai A, et al.
      First page: 99
      Abstract: We report on a solar jet phenomenon associated with the C5.4 class flare on 2014 November 11. The data of the jet was provided by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the X-Ray Telescope (XRT) aboard Hinode, and the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph and Domeless Solar Telescope (DST) at Hida Observatory, Kyoto University. These plentiful data enabled us to present this series of papers to discuss all the processes of the observed phenomena, including energy storage, event trigger, and energy release. In this paper, we focus on the energy release process of the observed jet, and mainly describe our spectral analysis on the Hα data of DST to investigate the internal structure of the Hα jet and its temporal evolution. This analysis reveals that in the physical quantity distributions of the Hα jet, such as line-of-sight velocity and optical thickness, there is a significant gradient in the direction crossing the jet. We interpret this internal structure as the consequence of the migration of the energy release site, based on the idea of ubiquitous reconnection. Moreover, by measuring the horizontal flow of the fine structures in the jet, we succeeded in deriving the three-dimensional velocity field and the line-of-sight acceleration field of the Hα jet. The analysis result indicates that part of the ejecta in the Hα jet experienced additional acceleration after it had been ejected from the lower atmosphere. This secondary acceleration was found to occur in the vicinity of the intersection between the trajectories of the Hα jet and the X-ray jet observed by Hinode/XRT. We propose that a fundamental cause of this phenomenon is magnetic reconnection involving the plasmoid in the observed jet.

  • Blue-wing enhancement of the chromospheric
           Mg ii h and k lines in a solar flare
    • Authors: Tei A; Sakaue T, Okamoto T, et al.
      First page: 100
      Abstract: We performed coordinated observations of AR 12205, which showed a C-class flare on 2014 November 11, with the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) and the Domeless Solar Telescope (DST) at Hida Observatory. Using spectral data in the Si iv 1403 Å, C ii 1335 Å, and Mg ii h and k lines from IRIS and the Ca ii K, Ca ii 8542 Å, and Hα lines from DST, we investigated a moving flare kernel during the flare. In the Mg ii h line, the leading edge of the flare kernel showed an intensity enhancement in the blue wing and a smaller intensity of the blue-side peak (h2v) than that of the red-side one (h2r). The blueshift lasted for 9–48 s with a typical speed of 10.1 ±  2.6 km s−1, which was followed by a high intensity and a large redshift with a speed of up to 51 km s−1 detected in the Mg ii h line. The large redshift was a common property for all six lines, but the blueshift prior to it was found only in the Mg ii lines. Cloud modeling of the Mg ii h line suggests that the blue-wing enhancement with such a peak difference could have been caused by a chromospheric-temperature (cool) upflow. We discuss a scenario in which an upflow of cool plasma is lifted up by expanding hot plasma owing to the deep penetration of non-thermal electrons into the chromosphere. Furthermore, we found that the blueshift persisted without any subsequent redshift in the leading edge of the flare kernel during its decaying phase. The cause of such a long-lasting blueshift is also discussed.

  • Measurement of vector magnetic field in a flare kernel with a
           spectropolarimetric observation in He  i 10830 Å
    • Authors: Anan T; Yoneya T, Ichimoto K, et al.
      First page: 101
      Abstract: A flare kernel associated with a C4 class flare was observed in a spectral window including the He i triplet 10830 Å and Si i 10827 Å with a spectropolarimeter on the Domeless Solar Telescope at Hida Observatory on 2015 August 9. The observed Stokes profiles of the He i triplet in the flare kernel in its post-maximum phase are well reproduced through inversions considering the Zeeman and the Paschen–Back effects with a three-slab model of the flare kernel, in which two slabs which have upward and downward velocities produce emissions and one slab produces an absorption. The magnetic field strength inferred from the emission components of the He i line is 1400 G, which is significantly stronger than 690 G that is observed at the same location in the same line 6.5 hr before the flare. In addition, the photospheric magnetic field vector derived from the Si i10827 Å is similar to that of the flare kernel. To explain this result, we suggest that the emission in the He i triplet during the flare is produced in the deep layer, around which bombardment of non-thermal electrons leads to the formation of a coronal temperature plasma. Assuming a hydrogen column density at the location where the He i emissions are formed, and a power-law index of non-thermal electron energy distribution, we derived the low-energy cutoff of the non-thermal electron as 20–30 keV, which is consistent with that inferred from hard X-ray data obtained by RHESSI.

  • Developments of a multi-wavelength spectro-polarimeter on the Domeless
           Solar Telescope at Hida Observatory
    • Authors: Anan T; Huang Y, Nakatani Y, et al.
      First page: 102
      Abstract: To obtain full Stokes spectra in multi-wavelength windows simultaneously, we developed a new spectro-polarimeter on the Domeless Solar Telescope at Hida Observatory. The new polarimeter consists of a 60 cm aperture vacuum telescope on an altazimuth mounting, an image rotator, a high-dispersion spectrograph, and a polarization modulator and an analyzer composed of a continuously rotating waveplate with a retardation that is nearly constant at around 127° in 500–1100 nm. There are also a polarizing beam splitter located close behind the focus of the telescope, fast and large format CMOS cameras, and an infrared camera. A slit spectrograph allows us to obtain spectra in as many wavelength windows as the number of cameras. We characterized the instrumental polarization of the entire system and established a polarization calibration procedure. The cross-talks among the Stokes Q, U, and V have been evaluated to be about 0.06%–1.2%, depending on the degree of the intrinsic polarizations. In a typical observing setup, a sensitivity of 0.03% can be achieved in 20–60 seconds for 500–1100 nm. The new polarimeter is expected to provide a powerful tool for diagnosing the 3D magnetic field and other vector physical quantities in the solar atmosphere.

  • Optical follow-up observation of Fast Radio Burst 151230
    • Authors: Tominaga N; Niino Y, Totani T, et al.
      First page: 103
      Abstract: The origin of fast radio bursts (FRBs), bright millisecond radio transients, is still somewhat of a mystery. Several theoretical models expect that the FRB accompanies an optical afterglow (e.g., Totani et al., 2013, PASJ, 65, L12; Kashiyama 2013, ApJ, 776, L39). In order to investigate the origin of FRBs, we perform gri-band follow-up observations of FRB 151230 (estimated $z$ ≲ 0.8) with Subaru/Hyper Suprime-Cam at 8, 11, and 14 days after discovery. The follow-up observation reaches a 50% completeness magnitude of 26.5 mag for point sources, which is the deepest optical follow-up of FRBs to-date. We find 13 counterpart candidates with variabilities during the observation. We investigate their properties with multi-color and multi-wavelength observations and archival catalogs. Two candidates are excluded by the non-detection of FRB 151230 in the other radio feed horns that operated simultaneously to the detection, as well as the inconsistency between the photometric redshift and that derived from the dispersion measure of FRB 151230. Eight further candidates are consistent with optical variability seen in active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Two more candidates are well fitted with transient templates (Type IIn supernovae), and the final candidate is poorly fitted with all of our transient templates and is located off-center of an extended source. It can only be reproduced with rapid transients with a faint peak and rapid decline, and the probability of chance coincidence is ∼3.6%. We also find that none of our candidates are consistent with Type Ia supernovae, which rules out the association of Type Ia supernovae to FRB 151230 at $z$ ≤ 0.6 and limits the dispersion measure of the host galaxy to ≲300 pc cm−3 in a Type Ia supernova scenario.

  • The first photometric investigation and period study of two W UMa-type
           binary systems: EF CVn and EH CVn
    • Authors: Xia Q; Li K, Chen X, et al.
      First page: 104
      Abstract: By analyzing the V, Rc, and Ic light curves of the two neglected W UMa-type binaries EF CVn and EH CVn using the Wilson–Devinney code, we have discovered that EF CVn is a median contact binary while EH CVn is a shallow contact binary, and they are both W-subtype binary systems. The mass ratio and fillout factor of EF CVn are q = 3.493 ± 0.063 and f = 32.0% ± 12.9%, respectively. Those of EH CVn are q = 3.331 ± 0.052 and f = 19.2% ± 10.9%, respectively. The addition of a dark spot on the secondary star is used to interpret the asymmetric light curves of EF CVn. An orbital period analysis of EF CVn indicates that there is a cyclic oscillation with an amplitude of 0.0064 d and a period of 15.65 yr, accompanied by a continuous increase at a rate of dp/dt = 4.52 × 10−7 d yr−1. The periodic oscillation can reasonably be explained by the light travel-time effect of an additional component. The secular increase is probably generated by conservative mass transfer from the primary star to the secondary star. Meanwhile, an analysis of the orbital period of EH CVn was also performed. A long-term period decrease at a rate of dp/dt = −5.20 × 10−8 d yr−1 was discovered; this is possibly interpreted as caused by mass transfer from the more massive component to the less massive component.

  • ALMA twenty-six arcmin2 survey of GOODS-S at one millimeter (ASAGAO):
           Source catalog and number counts
    • Authors: Hatsukade B; Kohno K, Yamaguchi Y, et al.
      First page: 105
      Abstract: We present the survey design, data reduction, construction of images, and source catalog of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) twenty-six arcmin2 survey of GOODS-S at one millimeter (ASAGAO). ASAGAO is a deep (1 σ depth ∼ 61 μJy beam−1 for a 250 kλ-tapered map with a synthesized beam size of 0${^{\prime\prime}_{.}}$51 × 0${^{\prime\prime}_{.}}$45) and wide area (26 arcmin2) survey on a contiguous field at 1.2 mm. By combining with ALMA archival data in the GOODS-South field, we obtained a deeper map in the same region (1 σ depth ∼ 30 μJy beam−1 for a deep region with a 250 kλ-taper, and a synthesized beam size of 0${^{\prime\prime}_{.}}$59 × 0${^{\prime\prime}_{.}}$53), providing the largest sample of sources (25 sources at ≥5.0 σ, 45 sources at ≥4.5 σ) among ALMA blank-field surveys to date. The number counts show that $52^{+11}_{-8}$% of the extragalactic background light at 1.2 mm is resolved into discrete sources at S1.2 mm > 135 μJy. We create infrared (IR) luminosity functions (LFs) in the redshift range of $z$ = 1–3 from the ASAGAO sources with Ks-band counterparts, and constrain the faintest luminosity of the LF at 2.0 < $z$ < 3.0. The LFs are consistent with previous results based on other ALMA and SCUBA-2 observations, which suggest a positive luminosity evolution and negative density evolution with increasing redshift. We find that obscured star-formation of sources with IR luminosities of log (LIR/L⊙) ≳ 11.8 account for ≈60%–90% of the $z$ ∼ 2 cosmic star-formation rate density.

  • Giant cometary H ii regions and molecular bow shocks in spiral arms
           of galaxies: M 83
    • Authors: Sofue Y.
      First page: 106
      Abstract: A number of giant cometary H ii regions (GCHs) sheathed inside molecular bow shocks (MBSs) are found along spiral arms of the barred galaxy M 83. The open cone structure is explained by a model of an expanded H ii front in a gaseous arm with a steep density gradient, and the bow shock is shown to be formed by the encounter of an H ii region with the supersonic gas flow across the arm. It is suggested that dual-side compression of molecular gas at the bow head between the MBS and the GCH enhances star formation along the spiral arms.

  • Repulsion of fallback matter due to central energy source in supernova
    • Authors: Shigeyama T; Kashiyama K.
      First page: 107
      Abstract: The flow of fallback matter being shocked and repelled back by an energy deposition from a central object is discussed using newly found self-similar solutions. We show that there exists a maximum mass-accretion rate if the adiabatic index of the flow is less than or equal to 4/3. Otherwise, we can find a solution with an arbitrarily large accretion rate by appropriately shrinking the energy deposition region. Applying the self-similar solution to supernova fallback, we discuss how the fate of newborn pulsars or magnetars depends on the fallback accretion and their spin-down power. Combining the maximum accretion rate with the condition for the fallback accretion to bury the surface magnetic field into the crust, we argue that supernova fallback with a rate of $\dot{M}_{\rm fb} \sim 10^{-(4\mbox{-}6)}\, M_{\odot }\:$s−1 could be the main origin of the diversity of Galactic young neutron stars, i.e., rotation-powered pulsars, magnetars, and central compact objects.

  • Systematic two-dimensional radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of
           super-Eddington accretion flow and outflow: Comparison with the slim disk
    • Authors: Kitaki T; Mineshige S, Ohsuga K, et al.
      First page: 108
      Abstract: To what extent can the one-dimensional slim disk model reproduce the multi-dimensional results of global radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of super-Eddington accretion' With this question in mind, we perform a systematic simulation study of accretion flow onto a non-spinning black hole for a variety of black hole masses of (10–107) M⊙ and mass accretion rates of (1.4 × 102–5.6 × 103) LEdd/c2 (with LEdd and c being the Eddington luminosity and the speed of light). In order to adequately resolve large-scale outflow structure, we extensively expand a simulation box to cover the space of 3000 rS (with rS being the Schwarzschild radius), larger than those in most previous studies, so that we can put relatively large angular momentum on the gas injected from the outer simulation boundary. The adopted Keplerian radius, at which the centrifugal force balances the gravitational force, is rK = 300 rS. The injected mass first falls and is accumulated at around this radius and then slowly accretes toward the central black hole via viscosity. We simulate such accretion processes, taking inverse and bulk Compton scattering into account. The simulated accretion flow is in a quasi-steady state inside rqss ∼ 200 rS. Within this radius the flow properties are, on the whole, in good agreement with those described by the slim disk model except that the radial density profile of the underlying disk is much flatter, ρ ∝ r−0.73 (cf. ρ ∝ r−3/2 in the slim disk model), due probably to efficient convection. We find very weak outflow from inside r ∼ 200 rS, unlike the previous studies.

  • Suzaku and NuSTAR X-ray spectroscopy of γ Cassiopeiae and
           HD 110432
    • Authors: Tsujimoto M; Morihana K, Hayashi T, et al.
      First page: 109
      Abstract: γ Cas and its dozen analogs comprise a small but distinct class of X-ray sources. They are early Be-type stars with an exceptionally hard thermal X-ray emission. The X-ray production mechanism has been under intense debate. Two competing ideas are (i) the magnetic activities in the Be star and its disk, and (ii) the mass accretion onto the unidentified white dwarf (WD). We adopt the latter as a working hypothesis and apply physical models developed to describe the X-ray spectra of classical WD binaries containing a late-type companion. Models of non-magnetic and magnetic accreting WDs were applied to γ Cas and its brightest analog HD 110432 using the Suzaku and NuSTAR data. The spectra were fitted by the two models, including the Fe fluorescence and the Compton reflection in a consistent geometry. The derived physical parameters are in a reasonable range in comparison to their classical WD binary counterparts. Additional pieces of evidence in the X-ray spectra—partial covering, Fe L lines, Fe i fluorescence—were not conclusive enough to classify these two sources into a subclass of accreting WD binaries. We discuss further observations, especially long-term temporal behaviors, which are important to elucidate the nature of these sources, if indeed they host accreting WDs.

  • Suzaku X-ray observations of the mixed-morphology supernova remnant
           CTB 1
    • Authors: Katsuragawa M; Nakashima S, Matsumura H, et al.
      First page: 110
      Abstract: We present an X-ray study of the mixed-morphology supernova remnant CTB 1 (G116.9+0.2) observed with Suzaku. The 0.6–2.0 keV spectra in the northeastern breakout region of CTB 1 are well represented by a collisional ionization-equilibrium plasma model with an electron temperature of ∼0.3 keV, whereas those in the southwestern inner-shell region can be reproduced by a recombining plasma model with an electron temperature of ∼0.2 keV, an initial ionization temperature of ∼3 keV, and an ionization parameter of ∼9 × 1011 cm−3 s. This is the first detection of the recombining plasma in CTB 1. The electron temperature in the inner-shell region decreases outwards, which implies that the recombining plasma is likely formed by the thermal conduction via interaction with the surrounding cold interstellar medium. The Ne abundance is almost uniform in the observed regions whereas Fe is more abundant toward the southwest of the remnant, suggesting an asymmetric ejecta distribution. We also detect a hard tail above the 2-keV band that is fitted with a power-law function with a photon index of 2–3. The flux of the hard tail in the 2–10 keV band is ∼5 × 10−13 erg cm−2 s−1 and peaks at the center of CTB 1. Its origin is unclear but one possibility is a putative pulsar wind nebula associated with CTB 1.

  • Extended optical/NIR observations of Type Iax supernova 2014dt: Possible
           signatures of a bound remnant†
    • Authors: Kawabata M; Kawabata K, Maeda K, et al.
      First page: 111
      Abstract: We present optical and near-infrared observations of the nearby Type Iax supernova (SN) 2014dt from 14 to 410 d after the maximum light. The velocities of the iron absorption lines in the early phase indicated that SN 2014dt showed slower expansion than the well-observed Type Iax SNe 2002cx, 2005hk, and 2012Z. In the late phase, the evolution of the light curve and that of the spectra were considerably slower. The spectral energy distribution kept roughly the same shape after ∼100 d, and the bolometric light curve flattened during the same period. These observations suggest the existence of an optically thick component that almost fully trapped the γ-ray energy from 56Co decay. These findings are consistent with the predictions of the weak deflagration model, leaving a bound white dwarf remnant after the explosion.

  • High entropy and evidence for a merger in the low surface brightness
           cluster Abell 2399
    • Authors: Mitsuishi I; Babazaki Y, Ota N, et al.
      First page: 112
      Abstract: We present results of the X-ray analyses of the nearby cluster of galaxies Abell 2399 ($z$ = 0.058) using the XMM–Newton and Suzaku satellites. This cluster is classified as a low surface brightness (LSB) cluster. It has a bimodal structure in X-rays, and the X-ray-emission peaks are significantly offset from the peaks in gas temperature. By de-projecting the annular spectra, the temperature and electron density in the central r < 0.1 r200 region are measured to be 3.6 keV and 1.4 × 10−3 cm−3, respectively. This yields a very high gas entropy, ∼300 keV cm2, in the central region, comparable to the values observed in other LSB clusters. The scaled entropy of Abell 2399 is the highest among the REXCESS cluster sample. The spatial distribution of the member galaxies exhibits multiple substructures, the locations of which are significantly different from those in the X-ray image. We discovered a clear discontinuity in the X-ray brightness and temperature distributions in the western gas clump, which provides evidence of the presence of a cold front. Therefore, our results strongly suggest that A2399 has experienced a merger and that the high central entropy originates from the merger activity.

  • Detection of polarized gamma-ray emission from the Crab nebula with the
           Hitomi Soft Gamma-ray Detector†
    • First page: 113
      Abstract: We present the results from the Hitomi Soft Gamma-ray Detector (SGD) observation of the Crab nebula. The main part of SGD is a Compton camera, which in addition to being a spectrometer, is capable of measuring polarization of gamma-ray photons. The Crab nebula is one of the brightest X-ray/gamma-ray sources on the sky, and the only source from which polarized X-ray photons have been detected. SGD observed the Crab nebula during the initial test observation phase of Hitomi. We performed data analysis of the SGD observation, SGD background estimation, and SGD Monte Carlo simulations, and successfully detected polarized gamma-ray emission from the Crab nebula with only about 5 ks exposure time. The obtained polarization fraction of the phase-integrated Crab emission (sum of pulsar and nebula emissions) is (22.1% ± 10.6%), and the polarization angle is ${110{^{\circ}_{.}}7}$ +${13{^{\circ}_{.}}2}$/−${13{^{\circ}_{.}}0}$ in the energy range of 60–160 keV (the errors correspond to the 1 σ deviation). The confidence level of the polarization detection was 99.3%. The polarization angle measured by SGD is about one sigma deviation with the projected spin axis of the pulsar, ${124{^{\circ}_{.}}0}$ ± ${0{^{\circ}_{.}}1}$.

      First page: 114
      Abstract: Sample return from the near-Earth asteroid known as 25143 Itokawa was conducted as part of the Hayabusa mission, with a large number of scientific findings being derived from the returned samples. Following the Hayabusa mission, Hayabusa2 was planned, targeting sample return from a primitive asteroid. The primary target body of Hayabusa2 was asteroid 162173 Ryugu; however, it was also necessary to gather physical information for backup target selection. Therefore, we examined five asteroids spectroscopically, 43 asteroids spectrophotometrically, and 41 asteroids through periodic analysis. Hence, the physical properties of 74 near-Earth asteroids were obtained, which helped the Hayabusa2 backup target search, and also furthered understanding of the physical properties of individual asteroids and their origins.

  • Optimum frequency of Faraday tomography to explore the intergalactic
           magnetic field in filaments of galaxies
    • Authors: Akahori T; Ideguchi S, Aoki T, et al.
      First page: 115
      Abstract: Faraday tomography is thought to be a powerful tool to explore the cosmic magnetic field. Broadband radio polarimetric data are essential to ensuring the quality of Faraday tomography, but such data are not easy to obtain because of radio frequency interferences. In this paper, we investigate optimum frequency coverage of Faraday tomography so as to explore the Faraday rotation measure (RM) due to the intergalactic magnetic field (IGMF) in filaments of galaxies. We adopt a simple model of the IGMF and estimate confidence intervals of the model parameters using the Fisher information matrix. We find that meaningful constraints on RM due to the IGMF are available with data at multiple narrowbands which are scattered over the ultra-high frequency (UHF, 300–3000 MHz). The optimum frequency depends on the Faraday thickness of the Milky Way foreground. These results are obtained for a wide brightness range of the background source including fast radio bursts. We discuss the relation between the polarized-intensity spectrum and the optimum frequency.

  • Colors of Centaurs observed by the Subaru/Hyper Suprime-Cam and
           implications for their origin
    • Authors: Sakugawa H; Terai T, Ohtsuki K, et al.
      First page: 116
      Abstract: Centaurs have orbits between Jupiter and Neptune and are thought to originate from the trans-Neptunian region. Observations of surface properties of Centaurs and comparison with those of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) would provide constraints on their origin and evolution. We analyzed imaging data of nine known Centaurs observed by the Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) installed on the Subaru Telescope with the g- and i-band filters. Using the data available in the public HSC data archive, as well as those obtained by the HSC Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP) by the end of 2017 June, we obtained the g − i colors of the nine Centaurs. We compared them with those of known TNOs in the HSC-SSP data obtained by T. Terai et al. (2018, PASJ, 70, S40). We found that the color distribution of the nine Centaurs is similar to that of those TNOs with high orbital inclinations, but distinct from those TNOs with low orbital inclinations. We also examined correlations between the colors of these Centaurs and their orbital elements and absolute magnitude. The Centaurs’ colors show a moderate positive correlation with semi-major axis, while no significant correlations between the color and other orbital elements or absolute magnitude were found for these Centaurs. On the other hand, recent studies on Centaurs with larger samples show interesting correlations between their color and absolute magnitude or orbital inclination. We discuss how our data fit in these previous studies, and also discuss implications of these results for their origin and evolution.
