A debris disk around an isolated young neutron star
The discovery of mid-infrared emission from a cool disk around an isolated young X-ray pulsar, which resembles protoplanetary disks seen around ordinary young stars, suggesting the possibility of planet formation around young neutron stars.
The Likely Near-Infrared Counterpart to the Anomalous X-Ray Pulsar 1E 1048.1–5937*
We report our discovery of the likely near-infrared counterpart to the anomalous X-ray pulsar (AXP) 1E 1048.1-5937, using observations from the 6.5 m Baade (Magellan I) telescope in Chile. We derived
The Optical Counterpart of the Accreting Millisecond Pulsar SAX J1808.4-3658 in Outburst: Constraints on the Binary Inclination
We present multiband optical/IR photometry of V4580 Sgr, the optical counterpart of the accretion-powered millisecond pulsar SAX J1808.4-3658, taken during the 1998 X-ray outburst of the system. The
A Search for Fallback Disks in Four Young Supernova Remnants
We report on our search for the optical/infrared counterparts to the central compact objects in four young supernova remnants: Pup A, PKS 1209−52, RCW 103, and Cas A. The X-ray point sources in these
The Orbit of the Massive X-Ray Binary LS 5039
We present the first spectroscopic orbit for the massive X-ray binary LS 5039, which we find to be a short-period (P = 4.117 ± 0.011 days) and highly eccentric (e = 0.41 ± 0.05) system. The low-mass
Discovery of Pulsations in the X-Ray Transient 4U 1901+03
We describe observations of the 2003 outburst of the hard-spectrum X-ray transient 4U 1901+03 with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer (RXTE). The outburst was first detected in 2003 February by the
O-2 in interstellar molecular clouds
We have used the Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS) to carry out deep integrations on the NJ = 33 → 12 transition of O2 in a variety of Galactic molecular clouds. We here report no
The X-Ray Position and Infrared Counterpart of the Eclipsing X-Ray Pulsar OAO 1657–415
We have measured the precise position of the 38 s eclipsing X-ray pulsar OAO 1657-415 with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory: (J2000) = 17h00m4890, (J2000) = -4139216, error radius = 05. Based on the
SDSS J102347.6+003841: A Millisecond Radio Pulsar Binary That Had a Hot Disk During 2000-2001
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) source J102347.6+003841 was recently revealed to be a binary 1.69 ms radio pulsar with a 4.75 hr orbital period and a approx0.2 M {sub sun} companion. Here, we
