Multiwavelength spectral evolution during the 2011 outburst of the very faint X-ray transient Swift J1357.2−0933
We report our multiwavelength study of the 2011 outburst evolution of the newly discovered black hole candidate X-ray binary Swift J1357.2−0933. We analysed the Swift X-ray Telescope andExpand

HIGH-RESOLUTION X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY OF THE BURSTING PULSAR GRO J1744-28
The bursting pulsar GRO J1744-28 is a Galactic low-mass X-ray binary that distinguishes itself by displaying type-II X-ray bursts: brief, bright flashes of X-ray emission that likely arise fromExpand

The quiescent X-ray spectrum of accreting black holes
The quiescent state is the dominant accretion mode for black holes on all mass scales. Our knowledge of the X-ray spectrum is limited due to the characteristic low luminosity in this state. Herein,Expand

XMM–Newton and Swift spectroscopy of the newly discovered very faint X-ray transient IGR J17494–3030
A growing group of low-mass X-ray binaries are found to be accreting at very faint X-ray luminosities of <1036 erg s−1 (2-10 keV). One such system is the new X-ray transient IGR J17494-3030. WeExpand

A DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF THE HEAT RELEASE IN THE OUTER CRUST OF THE TRANSIENTLY ACCRETING NEUTRON STAR XTE J1709−267
The heating and cooling of transiently accreting neutron stars provides a powerful probe of the structure and composition of their crust. Observations of superbursts and cooling of accretion-heatedExpand

The X-ray properties of Be/X-ray pulsars in quiescence
Observations of accreting neutron stars (NSs) with strong magnetic fields can be used not only for studying the accretion flow interaction with the NS magnetospheres, but also for understanding theExpand

Further X‐ray observations of EXO 0748−676 in quiescence: evidence for a cooling neutron star crust
In late 2008, the quasi-persistent neutron star X-ray transient and eclipsing binary EXO 0748−676 started a transition from outburst to quiescence, after it actively accreted for more than 24 yr. InExpand

The Variable Quiescent X-Ray Emission of the Transient Neutron Star XTE J1701-462
We present the results of continued monitoring of the quiescent neutron star low-mass X-ray binary XTE J1701-462 with Chandra and Swift. A new Chandra observation from 2010 October extends ourExpand

A four-year baseline Swift study of enigmatic X-ray transients located near the Galactic center
We report on continued monitoring observations of the Galactic center carried out by the X-ray telescope aboard the Swift satellite in 2008 and 2009. This campaign revealed activity of the five knownExpand

Rapid Cooling of the Neutron Star in the Quiescent Super-Eddington Transient XTE J1701-462
We present Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer and Swift observations made during the final three weeks of the 2006–2007 outburst of the super-Eddington neutron star (NS) transient XTE J1701–462, as well asExpand
