Geometric configuration for the model. The O VI photons originate from near the hot source (bold asterisk) and are Raman scattered in the neutral wind (H0-region) of the cool giant (weakly shaded circle). Grey scales and dotted contours show emissivity on a log scale. The grid of short straight lines illustrates the induced polarisation direction for directly scattered Raman photons. Distances on the axis are in units of 1012 cm.
