We report on the analysis of the ASCA and BeppoSAX X-ray observations of the polar system BL Hyi, per formed in October 94 and September 96, respectively. Emission from both poles is apparent from the folded light curves of both observations; the emission from the second pole varies from cycle to cycle, indicating non-stationary accretion there. The temperature of the post-shock region is estimated to be about 10 keV. Inclusion of both complex absorption and Compton reflection significantly improves the quality of the fit. No soft X-ray component is observed; the BeppoSAX/LECS upper limit to the soft component is in agreement with theoretical expectations for this low magnetic field system.

Abstract

We report on the analysis of the ASCA and BeppoSAX X-ray observations of the polar system BL Hyi, per formed in October 94 and September 96, respectively. Emission from both poles is apparent from the folded light curves of both observations; the emission from the second pole varies from cycle to cycle, indicating non-stationary accretion there. The temperature of the post-shock region is estimated to be about 10 keV. Inclusion of both complex absorption and Compton reflection significantly improves the quality of the fit. No soft X-ray component is observed; the BeppoSAX/LECS upper limit to the soft component is in agreement with theoretical expectations for this low magnetic field system.
