A Far Ultraviolet Archival Study of Cataclysmic Variables I. FUSE and HST/STIS Spectra of the Exposed White Dwarf in Dwarf Nova Systems

We present a synthetic spectral analysis of Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) and Hubble Space Telescope/Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST/STIS) spectra of 5 dwarf novae above and below the period gap during quiescence. We use our synthetic spectral code, including options for th...
