A Low-Magnetic-Field Soft Gamma Repeater
Odd Magnetar Magnetars are neutron stars that are widely thought to be powered by extremely high magnetic fields. Using data from three different x-ray observatories, Rea et al. (p. 944, publishedExpand
The discovery, monitoring and environment of SGR J1935+2154
NR is supported by an NWO Vidi Grant, and by grants AYA2012-39303 and SGR2014-1073. This work is partially supported by the European COST ActionMP1304 (NewCOMPSTAR).
The Hot and Energetic Universe: A White Paper presenting the science theme motivating the Athena+ mission
This White Paper, submitted to the recent ESA call for science themes to define its future large missions, advocates the need for a transformational leap in our understanding of two key questions inExpand
SWIFT AND FERMI OBSERVATIONS OF THE EARLY AFTERGLOW OF THE SHORT GAMMA-RAY BURST 090510
We present the observations of GRB090510 performed by the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope and the Swift observatory. This is a bright, short burst that shows an extended emission detected in the GeVExpand
A new low magnetic field magnetar: the 2011 outburst of Swift J1822.3–1606
We report on the long-term X-ray monitoring withSwift,RXTE,Suzaku,Chandra, andXMM-Newton of the outburst of the newly discovered magnetar Swift J1822.3−1606 (SGR 1822−1606), from the firstExpand
Three XMM-Newton observations of the anomalous X-ray pulsar 1E 1048.1-5937: Long term variations in spectrum and pulsed fraction
We report the results of a recent (July 2004) XMM-Newton Target of Opportunity observation of the Anomalous X-ray Pulsar 1E 1048.1-5937 together with a detailed re-analysis of previous observationsExpand
THE DUST-SCATTERING X-RAY RINGS OF THE ANOMALOUS X-RAY PULSAR 1E 1547.0-5408
On 2009 January 22 numerous strong bursts were detected from the anomalous X-ray pulsar 1E 1547.0-5408. Swift/XRT and XMM-Newton/EPIC observations carried out in the following two weeks led to theExpand
The isolated neutron star X-ray pulsars RX J0420.0-5022 and RX J0806.4-4123: New X-ray and optical observations
We report on the analysis of new X-ray data obtained with XMM-Newton and Chandra from two ROSAT-discovered X-ray dim isolated neutron stars (XDINs). RX J0806.4−4123 was observed with XMM-Newton inExpand
Magnetars: the physics behind observations. A review.
Magnetars are the strongest magnets in the present universe and the combination of extreme magnetic field, gravity and density makes them unique laboratories to probe current physical theories (fromExpand
The first outburst of the new magnetar candidate SGR 0501+4516
We report here on the outburst onset and evolution of the new soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 0501+4516. We monitored the new SGR with XMM- Newton starting on 2008 August 23, 1 day after the sourceExpand
