A 12.6-ms pulsar in Cygnus X-3

Abstract

The X-ray binary Cygnus X-3 has long been suspected of containing a fast, young pulsar, but previous observations at various wavelengths have failed to provide any evidence of a signal with a periodicity of less than 4.8 h (the well-known periodicity in the X-ray and infrared wavebands which is ascribed to orbital motion of a binary system). Here we report… (More)
