NICER observation list: Target ID 253501

Abstract

EX Hya is one of the soft X-ray brightest cataclysmic variables (CVs), and belongs to the intermiedate polar (IP) class, in which the accretion disk is disrupted by the magnetic field of the white dwarf (WD) and the subsequent accretion flow is channeled onto the magnetic pole regions. A strong shock forms, and the observed X-rays are emitted in the post-shock region. EX Hya is the prototype of low-luminosity IPs whose shock temperature is lower than expected from its WD mass. It is vigorously debated whether this is caused by a small inner radius of the disk, or by a tall shock. Here we propose to use the well-known partial X-ray eclipse of EX Hya to constrain the size and physical properties of its post-shock region.
