XMM-Newton spectral results of the soft thermal emitting region in the 0.3–5.0 keV energy range.

Parameter Value

NH (×1021 cm-2) in the Galaxy 0.6 (fixed)
NH (×1021 cm-2) in the LMC 0 (fixed)
kT (keV) 0.49  ±  0.12
Ionisation timescale*τ (s cm-3) (1.5  ±  0.7)  ×  1010
Absorbed flux (0.3–5.0 keV, erg/cm2/s) 2.5 × 10-13
Absorbed luminosity (0.3–5.0 keV, erg/s) 5.1 × 1034
Unabsorbed luminosity (0.3–5.0 keV, erg/s) 8.9 × 1034
Reduced χ2 1.27
Degrees of freedom 86

Notes. Model is VNEI with abundances fixed to 0.5 of the solar abundances.


The ionisation timescale τ = net, where ne is the electron number density and t is the age of the gas.
