Abstract

SN 1006 is the milestone of understanding the acceleration mechanism of cosmic rays, and this year is the millennium year for the remnant. We carried out SN 1006 mapping observations with the X-ray Imaging Spectrometers (XIS) onboard Suzaku satellite. Thanks to the excellent spectral response of XIS, K emission lines from highly ionized oxygen were clearly resolved. The intensity maps of these lines have been made additional to the intensity and photon index maps of the nonthermal component. We discovered that regions with strong and hard nonthermal component has weak thermal emission. The north rim of the SNR has the hardest nonthermal component. These facts might have information of efficient cosmic ray acceleration and background plasma.
