Recent Progress in Calibration of the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer Proportional Counter Array
We present the calibration and background model for the Proportional Counter Array on board the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer. The energy calibration is systematics-limited below 10 keV, with
In-orbit performance and calibration of the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) Proportional Counter Array (PCA)
The proportional counter array (PCA) is designed to perform microsecond timing of bright galactic sources and broad band, confusion limited, studies of faint extragalactic sources in the 2 - 60 keV
The Survey of Low-Mass X-Ray Binaries with the Einstein Observatory Solid-State Spectrometer and Monitor Proportional Counter
The HEAO 2 or Einstein solid-state spectrometer (SSS; 0.5-4.5 keV) and monitor proportional counter (MPC; 1.2-20.0 keV) carried out an extensive survey of 49 low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs).
Accretion powered X-ray pulsars
A unified description of the properties of 14 X-ray pulsars is presented and compared with the current theoretical understanding of these systems. The sample extends over six orders of magnitude in
Millisecond X-Ray Variability from an Accreting Neutron Star System
We report the detection with the Proportional Counter Array (PCA) on board the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) of millisecond variability in the X-ray emission from the low-mass X-ray binary 4U
Discovery of a Second Millisecond Accreting Pulsar: XTE J1751–305
We report the discovery by the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer Proportional Counter Array of a second transient accreting millisecond pulsar, XTE J1751-305, during regular monitoring observations of the
The X-Ray Light Curve of η Carinae: Refinement of the Orbit and Evidence for Phase-dependent Mass Loss
We solve the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer X-ray light curve of the extremely luminous and massive star η Carinae with a colliding-wind emission model to refine the ground-based orbital elements. The
Orbital and Superorbital Periods of 1E 1740.7-2942 and GRS 1758-258
Five years of Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) observations of the Galactic black hole candidates 1E 1740.7-2942 and GRS 1758-258 show a periodic modulation with an amplitude of 3%-4% in each
Two Different Long-Term Behaviors in Black Hole Candidates: Evidence for Two Accretion Flows?
We discuss the results of long-term hard X-ray monitoring of Galactic black hole candidates 1E 1740.7-2942, GRS 1758-258, Cyg X-1, GX 339-4, and Cyg X-3 with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer. The
The prelude to and aftermath of the giant flare of 2004 December 27: persistent and pulsed X-Ray properties of SGR 1806-20 from 1993 to 2005
We report on the evolution of key spectral and temporal parameters of SGR 1806-20 prior to and following the highly energetic giant flare of 2004 December 27. Using RXTE, we track the pulse frequency
