Title: X-ray observations of AM Herculis from OSO-8. [2 to 250 kV]

Abstract

The white dwarf binary system AM Herculis (2A1815+500) was observed in X-rays at both low energies (E < 10 keV) and higher energies. The exact shape of the spectrum, particularly at the higher energies, has yet to be determined. Results from the high energy scintillation spectrometer on OSO-8 are presented. These are combined with results published elsewhere obtained concurrently with the proportional counter on the same satellite, and thus give for the first time coincident observations of AM Her over the range 2 to 250 keV.
