An electron–positron layer can cover the surface of a bare strange star (SS), the electric field in which can excite the vacuum and drive a pair wind by taking away the heat of the star. In order to investigate the pair-emission ability of a proto-SS, we establish a toy model to describe its early thermal evolution, where the initial trapping of neutrinos is specially taken into account. It is found that the early cooling of the SS is dominated by the neutrino diffusion rather than the… 


Relativistic mass ejecta from phase-transition-induced collapse of neutron stars
We study the dynamical evolution of a phase-transition-induced collapse neutron star to a hybrid star, which consists of a mixture of hadronic matter and strange quark matter. The collapse is
The effect of r-mode instability on the evolution of isolated strange stars
We studied the evolution of isolated strange stars (SSs) synthetically, considering the influence of r-mode instability. Our results show that the cooling of SSs with non-ultrastrong magnetic fields
Cooling of a rotating strange star in the color superconducting phase with a crust
Aims. We investigate the thermal evolution of strange stars in the 2-flavor color superconductivity and color-flavor locked phases under the influence of deconfinement heating. Methods. Due to the
Quark-Nova as Gamma Ray Burst Precursor
We explore the scenario where the core of a neutron star (having experienced a transition to an up and down quark phase) shrinks into the equilibrated quark object after reaching strange quark matter
Evolution of Proto-Neutron Stars
We study the thermal and chemical evolution during the Kelvin-Helmholtz phase of the birth of a neutron star, employing neutrino opacities that are consistently calculated with the underlying
Studying newborn neutron stars by the transient emission after stellar collapses and compact binary mergers
The formation of neutron stars (NSs), both from collapses of massive stars and mergers of compact objects, can be usually indicated by bright transients emitted from explosively-ejected material. In
Long-lived remnants from binary neutron star mergers
Massive neutron star (NS) with lifetimes of at least several seconds are expected to be the result of a sizable fraction of NS mergers. We study their formation using a large set of numerical
The X-Ray Light Curve in GRB 170714A: Evidence for a Quark Star?
Two plateaus and a following bump in the X-ray light curve of GRB 170714A have been detected by the Swift/X-ray Telescope, which could be very significant for the central engine of gamma-ray bursts
Can magnetar spin-down power extended emission in some short GRBs?
Extended emission gamma-ray bursts are a subset of the ‘short’ class of burst which exhibit an early time rebrightening of gamma emission in their light curves. This extended emission arises just
Thermal Emission from Bare Quark Matter Surfaces of Hot Strange Stars
We consider the thermal emission of photons and e+e- pairs from the bare quark surface of a hot strange star. The radiation of high-energy (20 MeV) equilibrium photons prevails at the surface
